While Mitchell Tanis’ mixed-media art exhibition Aterlight officially opens on September 24, audiences who can’t make it out over the weekend will have one last chance to catch what looks to be an incredibly striking showing. Aterlightwhich is based entirely on the concept of the emotional responses elicited by day transforming into night, features what Tanis describes as “a creative expression of photography, art, and design.”
In the preview images, Tanis’ work artfully conveys his desired intent; all three of the selections Tanis sent to Ton Madison were evocative of the sense of encroaching wonder and personal quiet that often accompany nightfall. Melancholic, reflective, and occasionally serene, Tanis’ vision—even when presented in abbreviation—is undeniably powerful. Afterlight seems set to be an exhibition that leaves a lasting impression. Afterlight will open in a showing that runs from 5 pm to pm on Saturday, September 24 and continue to run from 9 am to 9 pm through Monday, September 26.
