Bold’e Burlesqu’e Photo Exhibit Opens at Gallery Zeke
This May, Gallery Zeke will open its doors to the performance art of Burlesque through a black & white photo essay by artist Ray Harvey. Viewers may recognize Ray Harvey for his extensive mural projects, especially in Cuba, MO, but this new exhibit marks a new direction for Mr. Harvey.
Using a vintage 1940’s designed manual, low-tech panoramic camera called a Widelux, he ventured into the Iowa Burlesque Festival at the invitation of “American Pickers” star Danielle Colby. Ms. Colby, in addition to the history channels’ vintage show, is involved in her own burlesque dance troupe called Burlesque Le’Moustache. Mr. Harvey was asked to portray the art form from behind the curtain and capture the atmosphere of the production.
Gallery Zeke has now scheduled his first photo exhibit publicly displaying this collection of photographs. The show opens May 1st with an opening reception on May 2nd. In addition to the display that evening, Mr. Harvey will be present to give a brief description of his experience and answer to answer any questions. The photos will be for purchase in limited edition quantities. All of the prints will be panoramic in scale and some will be viewable quite large. Much more of his work can be viewed at www.rayharveyart.com.
