The opening events for the new Louis Draper exhibition at Steven Kasher Gallery this past weekend were excellent. The show – over 75 images – is beautifully installed and it is an honor for Candela to have helped put together this major solo exhibition of Louis Draper’s work.
Many old friends and colleagues, including some members from Kamoinge were in attendance and shared some memories of Draper and thoughts about this great work. An amazing opening reception last Thursday and then we had the pleasure of hearing Nell Draper-Winston lead a walk-through of the exhibition on Saturday. She is a beautiful speaker and she was as engaging as ever.
Thanks to all who came out and if you are in New York, the show runs until February 20th, 2016!
Candela Books + Gallery is excited to share news of our collaboration with Steven Kasher Gallery in New York on a major exhibition of photography by Louis Draper. The exhibition will include over 75 vintage black and white prints spanning Draper’s career from the 1950s – 1980s.
We have been working on behalf of the Louis H. Draper Preservation Trust for three years now and we are thrilled to see Draper’s work get the recognition it so deserves.
The retrospective will open January 14 and will run through February 20, 2016.
The opening reception will take place at Steven Kasher Gallery on Thursday, January 14th, from 6 – 8 PM. Gordon and Mrs. Nell Draper-Winston will be there for the exhibition opening.
A huge thanks to Mrs. Nell Draper-Winston, Mrs. Cheryl Pelt, and the entire team at Steven Kasher Gallery for sharing the work of Louis Draper!
