Over 50 photographs have been selected for display at CEPA Gallery in the exhibition Exterior Views: The Richardson Olmsted Complex. Three winning photographs were chosen: Towers (First Place, by Thomas Lavin of Orinda, CA), Curved Connection (Second Place, by Karen Streech of Buffalo, NY), and Snowy ROC (Third Place, by Dmitry Gudkov of Buffalo, NY). In addition to the gallery exhibition, all of the photos submitted will be shown on the web sites of both organizations, and in a video display at CEPA on opening night.

Photographers were invited to submit any photographs they had taken of the exterior of the Richardson Olmsted Complex, in the following four categories: Details and Abstractions, Juxtapositions, Patterns and Textures, and Light and Dark. Images were reviewed (in a blind review) by a committee of Richardson Center Corporation and CEPA Gallery staff. Upon the closing of the exhibition in March, the contest winners, and others whose photographs were printed and displayed, will get to keep the prints.

Exterior Views: The Richardson Olmsted Complex will offer fascinating perspectives on the iconic structure, illustrating how many ways there are to view one of the most architecturally and historically significant structures in Western New York. This is an extraordinary site, added to the National Register of Historic Places (http://www.nps.gov/Nr/research/) in 1973, and it became a National Historic Landmark (http://www.nps.gov/nhl/) in 1986. More about its history is available at www.richardson-olmsted.com.

The Richardson Center Corporation and CEPA Gallery look forward to welcoming visitors to the exhibition to celebrate the photographers and this collaborative effort to bring attention to the rich legacy of the Richardson Olmsted Complex.
