Austin Peay State University photography Professor Amir Aghareb will present his work in “The Sky is [Still] Mine” continues through December 9th at The New Gallery on campus. 

Aghareb enjoys taking carefully composed 2D conventional photographs as well as nonconventional work that pushes the usual definition of the medium. Illuminated encapsulated photographs in translucent cubic frames, laser-etched tea-toned cyanotypes of photographs taken by cellphone, heavily composited photographs that question the trustworthiness of a photograph and works that occupy the space rather than just a part of the wall are examples of his work. 
His recent work is about physical spaces. He explores the similarities and differences one is exposed to when being relocated. The work is also about finding peace, where one can extend their imagination and place themselves wherever they desire. It is about looking high above when surrounded by unfamiliarity. As the Persian poet Sohrâb Sepehrî said, “No matter where I am, the sky is [still] mine.” 

There are several events associated with this exhibition:

  • Aghareb will present an artist lecture on his work and creative practice on November 16th at 6:00pm in Room 120 of the APSU Art + Design building.
  • A reception and gallery talk with Aghareb will be in The New Gallery on November 17th beginning at noon.
  • This exhibition will be open during Clarksville’s First Thursday Art Walk on December 1st from 5:00pm to 7:30pm.
