In conjunction with the FotoFest 2014 Biennial, Wendy Levine Photography will open its studio space for Middle Eastern Moments, an exhibit of gelatin silver and color photographs spanning years of traveling in and around the region. The opening is on March 14, 6-9 p.m.
Levine, who has work in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and the Brooklyn Museum of Art as well as many private collections, has traveled extensively throughout the region and will show images from Egypt, Morocco, Yemen, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia. Levine has a master's degree in photojournalism from the University of Missouri, graduated from high school in Tehran, Iran, and lived in Dhahran, Sandi Arabia, during the late 1980s, returning briefly during the Gulf War in 1990. She was the director of the Panache Gallery on the Saudi Aramco compound and was granted a royal decree as a westerner to photograph kindergarten classes for a UNESCO study on Saudi schools.
Over the years, Levine has also contributed photographs of the region to Saudi Aramco World, Al-Ayyam Al-Jamilah and Gulf Air magazines.
On view through April 27. After the opening reception, viewing is by appointment only.
