Art empowers learning

On Exhibit September 10 – November 11, 2021

Bedford’s Sing Hanson is a photographer and digital printmaker whose work has examined the effect of age and the elements on varying materials and environments; from metal to quarry ledges to bodies of water.

In the Artist’s words:

I was once a painter, but am mostly a photographer at the moment. My photos sometimes blur the lines between the two media, and also between realism and abstraction. I also make limited edition artist’s handmade books, one of a kind multimedia collages and three-dimensional assemblages.

Concepts of recycling, repurposing, and adaptive reuse have framed my work over the last decade. I record evidences of the passage of time, whether they be the rusted sides of decommissioned trains on unused Sidetracks or Still Alives of desiccated flowers nested in prized bowls.


You can find Sing’s bio at the Umbrella Arts
