PUSH Gallery is proud to present Just Looking-new portrait/street photography by Anthony Bellemare. The opening reception is Friday, March 7 from 7-10pm. Just Looking will be on display from March 7 until April 14. Come one and all. Refreshments graciously provided by Asheville Pizza and Brewing.
Anthony Bellemare, who makes his home in Asheville, NC, uses the camera as a means of capturing, creating and relaying moments — of place and person, and always in time. His photographs take note of brief sidewalk encounters and small-town city life, all in-passing. “I strive to make images that are anchored in a moment,” says Bellemare. “I enjoy wandering with intention, noticing a coincidence and following a hunch, and never wasting an opportunity.”
During the last 5 years Bellemare has contributed photographs for Verve, Bold Life and the Mountain Xpress and will be featuring portraits in the Asheville Citizen Times during an upcoming, month-long photography column entitled “Living Portraits” Just Looking is Bellemare’s second solo exhibition.

The work on display includes a life-sized found object assemblage of a horse-drawn pioneer/gypsy wagon, a site-specific indoor mural, poetically combined cardboard signs, and a curated "show within a show" of works by local and national underground artists.
