Larry Braun: Transition Spaces 16.1 Opens April 29 in Crisp Museum

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., April 18, 2016 — Larry Braun: Transition Spaces 16.1 opens April 29 in the Rosemary Berkel and Harry L. Crisp II Museum at Southeast Missouri State University’s River Campus.

The public is invited to view the exhibition beginning April 29. An opening reception will be held from 4-8 p.m. May 6, with an artist’s talk at 6 p.m. The exhibit will remain on display through June 12. Admission is free.

Braun artistically explores digital photography through creative manipulations of natural subjects and rural scenes. Many of his landscape photographs have a quality that others describe as that of a traditional landscape painting. Braun uses high dynamic range processing and light exposure variations to cast an ethereal feeling into his photographs, emphasizing the color variations and textures found within the lights and darks. His goal is to have a viewer see the dynamic beauty in what are otherwise subtle and ordinary subjects.

The Crisp Museum is located in the Cultural Arts Center at Southeast Missouri State University’s River Campus, located at 518 S. Fountain St. in Cape Girardeau, Mo. Museum hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday to Friday, 1-4 p.m. on weekends and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on the first Friday of the month. For more information, call (573) 651-2260 or email museum@semo.edu.
