Artspace 304 presents two exhibitions by John O’Connell opening this month. “Sense of Scale”
by John O’Connell is on view at Artspace 304’s main gallery from October 6 – November 10.
Join us for the opening reception Friday, October 6 from 5-7pm, including an artist talk. “Sense
of Scale” explores landscape photography through the theme of scale with subjects ranging
from miniature insects and plants to the vast expanses of the cosmos. The work also portrays
time through camera exposures ranging from motion-freezing fast shutter speeds to prolonged
six-month exposure times.
A concurrent exhibition, “Diurnal Rhythms” by John O’Connell is on view at The Corridor Gallery
through November 17. “Diurnal Rhythms” showcases Southern Illinois landscapes through
daytime and night-time photography. Landscapes captured at different times of day will line both
walls of The Corridor Gallery displaying contrast and balance between the presence and
absence of daylight. Visit The Corridor Gallery, located in the Carbondale Civic Center Monday
through Friday from 8:30am – 5pm. To purchase artwork from The Corridor Gallery, contact
Artspace 304 by phone (618)457-5100 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
