Art 'Round Town July 5
Photographer Barry Tarr will have an exhibit of his stunning photographs on display during the month of July at the New Hampshire Art Association’s Robert Lincoln Levy Gallery. In "The Rhythm of Color," the images in this body of work explore the use of color as a pure abstract exercise intended to delight the eye and mind, Tarr said. Tarr’s use of technology for this series involves the recent development of inexpensive LED light strips and tiny electronic controllers. These tools have allowed him to study pure color and light as shown in his photographs. There'll be an opening reception as part of Portsmouth's monthly Art 'Round Town gallery walk. Dover's monthly Art Walk will also take place Friday.
