Etherton Gallery is pleased to present a retrospective exhibition celebrating the 100th birthday of photographer Todd Walker (1917-1998). Todd Walker at 100 and Frank Gohlke, Speeding Trucks and Other Follies, opens with a reception, 7-10pm, Saturday, November 18th, 2017 and runs through January 6, 2018. 

The exhibition explores the primary focus of Todd Walker’s career, experimentation. Walker was an innovative and prolific photographer, printmaker, and book artist who is best known for his layered, manipulated prints and his use of offset lithography and screenprinting. He revived and reinterpreted 19th century photographic processes, then later experimented with new image making systems including early digital photography made possible by the first Apple computers. Speeding Trucks and Other Follies brings together three bodies of work by preeminent landscape photographer Frank Gohlke, made during 1971-1972, which established his abiding sensitivity to the landscapes of ordinary life. 

This is Gohlke’s first exhibition with the gallery, and Etherton is the first venue to show this body of work. The exhibition will also include a small installation of Gohlke’s grain elevator photographs.
