Mark Laita

“The Fahey/Klein Gallery is pleased to present three new bodies of work from photographer Mark Laita: Amaranthine, Sea, and Serpentine. Mark Laita’s previous exhibitions at the Fahey/Klein Gallery were based on an eight year body of work entitled Created Equal, consisting of American diptych portraits that succeed in challenging or reinforcing our perceptions of American archetypes, and explore themes such as wealth, beauty, occupation, and age. In this most recent exhibition however, Mark Laita strays away from human subject matter all together, and instead focuses on beautifully preserved birds, mesmerizing snakes, and ethereal sea life.”

Rodney Smith

The Fahey/Klein Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of landscape, portrait, and fashion work by celebrated photographer Rodney Smith. This exhibition will showcase Rodney’s distinctive crisp and clean black and white photographs, as well as a selection of his striking color work. Rodney Smith’s photographs convey an elegant combination of style and substance, humor and wit, flawless glamour and idiosyncratic details. The characters that inhabit this imagined world are elegant, chic, and dapper, but also riddled with quirky and clever details.
