EXHIBITION DETAILS

Gary Schubert is a multidisciplinary artist who works in traditional and non-traditional media and is known for blending approaches to artmaking in experimental ways. He finds freedom within self-imposed limitations and often asks, “What can my camera see that I can’t see?”

While making plans for a trip to France in 2019, he determined to bring only his iPhone and one small amateur digital camera. In this camera, the normal UV-blocking filter was replaced with a Super Blue filter, which allows only specific blue, infrared, and ultraviolet light frequencies to pass. The resulting color Super Blue interpretations and monochrome photographs are exhibited together, minimally edited, allowing viewers to see France in a different light.

Gary Schubert studied under Tom Nakashima at West Virginia University where he earned an MFA in painting (1980) and an MS in computer science (1980). He also studied with acclaimed French photographer Lucien Clergue. He has exhibited widely, and his work is represented in public collections such as the Huntington Museum of Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art. He retired from Alderson Broaddus University, Philippi, West Virginia, as an Associate Professor after more than three decades teaching art and computer science. He lives in Morgantown, West Virginia, with his wife, Alice.

This exhibit is presented with support from the City of Huntington Mayor’s Council for the Arts.

This exhibit is presented with support from The Isabelle Gwynn and Robert Daine Exhibition Endowment.

This program is presented with financial assistance from the West Virginia Department of Arts, Culture & History, and the National Endowment for the Arts, with approval from the West Virginia Commission on the Arts.

The Opening Reception for this exhibit will take place on Friday, November 3, 2023, at 6 p.m.
