“Dreamless, Unalive, Perfect,” the first solo exhibition of photographs by Danbury resident William Frucht, takes place at the Gallery at Still River Editions from January 10 through March 27, 2015. There is an opening reception on Saturday, January 10 from 2 pm - 4 pm.

The 12 black-and-white landscape photographs in the show, which Frucht printed himself, find beauty in decay of manmade objects and their reclamation by nature. In his artist’s statement, he says, “Over time, the things we discard and forget have grown larger and more complex. Once it was stone arrowheads, now it is houses, stores and factories. These things, once abandoned, immediately begin to vanish as nature begins the slow work of taking them back.… I am less interested in what people took away from these places than in what they left behind, and what happened to it.”

The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public. The Gallery at Still River Editions is located at 128 East Liberty St., Danbury, CT. Normal business hours 8:30 am - 5 pm Monday through Friday, and during posted hours for special events.
