Exhibition opening reception and performance: “Amber—“Sun Stone” by Latvian Artist, Andris Zegneris

Description

Gallaudet University and Embassy of Latvia welcome all to attend the Exhibition opening reception and performance, titled: “Amber—“Sun Stone” by Latvian Artist, Andris Zegneris, with ALIAS Deaf & Hearing Choir.

One of the greatest treasures of Latvia’s natural resources is the "Sun-Stone"—amber that came into existence 40 million years ago and which can still be found on the Baltic Sea coast. The exhibition will reveal the unusual stone in large-scale macro photographs. Through this innovative approach to the "Sun-Stone", the photographer Andris Zegneris offers us a new concept of amber. We are given a unique change to look at a close-up of this ancient jewel. The artist has created a brand new visual environment from this ancient micro-reality with the help of highly innovative macro photographic system.

Andris is a Latvian born artist, who studied at the Latvian State Academy of Music, Department of Culture and Art Science (1980-84).
