About the Exhibition


This window was made, along with others, as part of a set by a father-and-son team in an era when horse-drawn carriages were the pre-dominate mode of transportation.  The builders were very religious, and they made the windows at a lower than normal price because they thought the windows were intended for a grand new church or parsonage- something glorious and beautiful.  Sadly, that construction never happened and the set was broken-up, eventually being used in private homes which was not part of the thought process of the artisans.  This particular window was owned by a prominent family that had some role in local government or the civic life of this community.  This family had many objects like this one, but the window wasn't just an object in a static collection, it functioned as a window mounted into a wall of their home.  One of the windows from the set - possibly this one - was broken, but because the window wasn't where it was originally intended to be placed, the owner couldn't have the original maker repair it, instead, they had to hire a different glazier.  Ashyn Flanagan, Intuitive/Medium, December 2015

About the Artist


Dan R. Talley
 is a professor in the Fine Arts Department at Kutztown University of Pennsylvania where he teaches photography and professional practices. He has been involved in the arts since 1970, working as gallery director, an arts writer, and artist. Talley co-founded several arts organizations including Art Papers Magazine (Atlanta, GA), and Real Art Ways (Hartford, CT). Early in his career, Talley’s artwork—including photography, videos, drawings, and installations that incorporated audio and photographic projections—was exhibited at various galleries, museums, and alternative venues. His writings have appeared in a variety of publications including Sculpture Magazine, New Art Examiner, Ceramics Monthly, and Art Papers Magazine. For much of his career, gallery administration has been a primary focus, but since stepping down as director of Kutztown University’s gallery in 2010, he is producing new artwork, much of it realized as photo-based pieces that continue his long-standing interest in Conceptualism and Minimalism. http://www.danrtalley.com
