Former central New York resident Kathleen Nathan is returning to her roots, bringing her solo photography exhibit “Inside Brooklyn” to Herkimer College’s Cogar Gallery from Aug. 20 through Oct. 4. An artist’s reception will be held from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Aug. 23.
"Inside Brooklyn" focuses on the urban landscape viewable out Nathan’s apartment window when she moved to the city in February 2011 from Southern California. The pieces explore the nuances of daily life in the city through pictures of nearby windows and brick walls, roof top edges, slices of city skyline, and the 34-story, art deco landmark skyscraper, Williamsburg Savings Bank Tower.
"I was mesmerized by this building, a constant in a continuum of change," said Nathan. "It was my timepiece, anchor and true north as I learned to navigate my new life in Brooklyn."
The Cogar Gallery is open to the public free of charge Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. when the College is open.
