"Chimeric Daydreams & Aperol Suns" and "Road Trip"

After nearly a year in a quaint Southtown house-turned-gallery on South Presa Street (hence the name), Presa House Gallery has officially left its old digs behind in search of a bigger and brighter future. Part of the gallery’s planned effort to spread its wings, collaborate with other contemporary art spaces and — eventually — grow into a more accommodating location, the somewhat-sudden move coincides with the opening of two anticipated Fotoseptiembre exhibitions curated by gallery co-director Jenelle Esparza. Taking over Joan Grona’s former gallery in the Blue Star Arts Complex, the pair of solo shows unites Rebecca Dietz and Melanie Rush-Davis, photographers Esparza finds complementary based on their shared wanderlust and ability “to transform time and space with a single photograph.” An East Coast native with an eclectic background encompassing both theater and circus arts, Dietz photographed her poetically titled “Chimeric Daydreams & Aperol Suns” on a recent trip to Italy and later gave the images a surreal slant by cross-processing the film. A like-minded fan of old-school alternative photographic processes, Rush Davis (known by some as the “pinhole queen”) puts a dreamlike spin on landscapes and fleeting moments in “Road Trip,” an excursion in the Southwest captured with her signature pinhole camera. Following the opening reception, "Chimeric Daydreams & Aperol Suns" and "Road Trip" remain on view by appointment through September 30.
