Old Town Frame Company

Old Town Frame Co. is proud to present the black and white photography of Dr. Gilbert C. Pogany. Gilbert first displayed in the gallery as a part of the Verde Valley Fair Show and is now returning for his own show, a collection of beautiful southwest images.

After being given a camera by his father in high school, Gilbert worked on perfecting his photography skills in graduate school and came to truly appreciate the entire process from conceptualizing to developing his prints. Since retiring from university teaching, Gilbert has devoted most of his free time to traveling and photographing the beauty of the West. He still spends much of his time in the dark room watching, in awe, the photos revealing themselves in the developing tray. “It is the abstraction of a black and white image that I wish to convey to the viewer,” says Gilbert, “It is my hope that I am able to successfully convey this awe to you.”

Visit the gallery between 6 and 9 pm on Saturday, September 9th, to enjoy Gilbert’s work, as well as some wine, light snacks and good company.
