Yancey Richardson presents Reading in Color, an exhibition of new work by Mary Ellen Bartley. Known for her exploration of the tactile and formal qualities of printed books, the photographs in the exhibition showcase colorful arrangements made from the dyed  fore-edges of mass market “pulp” paperbacks.  Untethered from their titles and the stories within, these still life compositions quietly oscillate between abstraction, sculptural assemblage and color studies.
