"Off The Grid" Image Published in Adbusters Magazine February 2011
The Quote under the image reads:
"Until you dig a hole, plant a tree, you water it and make it survive, you haven't done a thing."
Anderson-Staley's exhibit, titled “Photographic Objects,” brings together three separate projects of hers: “-Americans: Contemporary Tintype Portraits,” “Baking Pan Series: An Incomplete Family History,” and “Imagined Family Heirlooms.”
"All three projects make use of photography as an essential element, but in each case the photographs are used as part of larger installations to create works dealing with themes of identity, family and history. The projects range from pure photography done with historic processes to more sculptural installations. Each project asks us to think about the role that photography plays in our sense of cultural identity, our construction of memories and our connection to family histories.”
Opening Reception Feb 8 from 6-8 pm
The exhibit will run from Feb. 1-25.

Curated by Flanders Gallery and Allen Thomas, Jr. , the Open Season exhibition explores this phrase in both the literal and colloquial sense: a time of year (hunting season to be exact), a time for open critique, as well as a time for games, play and individual exploration--an "anything goes" type of ideology.
This exhibition will feature photographs and videos by such artists as Keliy Anderson-Staley, Tim Briner, Jesse Burke, Katrina D'Autremont, Ian F.G. Dunn, Nils Ericson, Dan Estabrook, Jody Fausett, Taj Forer, Anthony Goicolea, Allison Hunter, Michael Itkoff, Bill Jacobson, Sara Anne Johnson, Carrie Levy, Chris McCaw, Pam Pecchio, Kristine Potter, Francesca Romeo, Kerry Skarbakka, Tema Stauffer, Bill Sullivan, Tim Tate, Brian Ulrich, Burk Uzzle, Stacy-Lynn Waddell, Shen Wei, Jeff Whetstone, and Cosmo Whyte.

NEW WORK UP AT THE CALIFORNIA MUSEUM OF PHOTOGRAPHY:
"For Riverside -Americans, Keliy invited members of the local community as well as UCR ARTSblock curators and staff to sit for tintype portraits. The workshops took place over the course of two long afternoons in October 2009. Participants were immersed in a classic 19th century portrait studio experience. They watched attentively as the photographer set the camera, developed images in a makeshift cardboard darkroom, and as their own tintype portraits slowly came to life in the watery bath. There will be a opening reception for the exhibition from 6:00 - 9:00 at UCR/CMP on Thursday, February 4th as part of First Thursday ARTSwalk."
The show will be moving later this Spring to other venues in New England,
including Simmons College; UMASS, Dartmouth; and the Maine Media Workshops.
