Purposeful Looking Exhibition Reception


Location: Notre Dame Center for Arts and Culture


The Crossroads Gallery will close a unique exhibition featuring photographer Justin Kronewetter on Friday, July 27. Purposeful Looking is a collection of photographs that act as recordings of ordinary things in uncommon ways.

Kronewetter is a lifelong artist and educator having taught at several universities and colleges since earning his degree at Cranbrook. He has recently retired from his role as executive director at the Ohio Wesleyan Richard M. Ross Art Museum.  In his tenure there he curated over 200 exhibitions and helped to build the works on paper collection which now numbers more than 3,000 objects.

"At a point when photographic technology permits, if not encourages, the production of complex imagery on a larger and larger scale, I take satisfaction in creating carefully crafted images on a more intimate scale,” says Kronewetter about his work. “Rather than forcing the viewer to back away to see the entire image, I prefer for the viewer to be drawn in to “reading distance” to discover details otherwise unnoticed.”

The exhibition will close on Friday, July 27, 2018, with a public reception.  Kronewetter will be available for conversations about his work from 5:30 to 7:30 PM.  Light refreshments will be served.

This exhibition is organized by the Crossroads Gallery Notre Dame Center for Arts & Culture. For further information on Kronewetter’s exhibitions, publications, and images see www.justinkronewetter.com.
