The Borgia Gallery at the College of Our Lady of the Elms will host an art exhibit, “Juxtaposition: Abstraction Through the Eyes of Two Artists,” featuring the work of Debra Gomes and Edward Los. The exhibit will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily beginning Saturday, Aug. 27, and running through Saturday, Oct. 1, excluding college holidays. A reception for the two artists will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 15.Through highly abstract -- and very different -- works of photography, Gomes and Los invite viewers to see the world in new ways. Gomes uses digital macro photography to bring out patterns and details in very close-up views of everyday objects; Los uses a homemade light box to “paint” photosensitive paper, which he then develops himself, in his home darkroom.“The title of the show says it all,” Gomes said. “Everything in the show is based on opposition: black and white vs. color, film vs. digital, professional vs. amateur, and home darkroom and printing vs. professional printing.”The common thread, she added, is that all the pieces are abstract.
