PNC Odyssey Presents "Rock Frenzy" by Bobby Talamine
WESTVILLE – The Purdue University North Central 2009-10 Odyssey Arts and Cultural Events Series is presenting the exhibit, “Rock Frenzy,” by Bobby Talamine, one of the premiere rock ‘n roll photographers in the country. It will run through the end of the year in the PNC Library-Student-Faculty Building student lounge Room 062 in the building's lower level. The exhibit is free and is open to the public and may be viewed Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
It features photographs of rock artists that includes Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, Billy Corgan of the Smashing Pumpkins, David Bowie, Neil Peart of Rush, Roger Waters of Pink Floyd, Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead, Madonna, Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam, Billie Jo Armstrong of Green Day and Ozzy Osbourne.
There will be an artist's reception and talk on Tuesday, Oct. 20 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 pm. in the PNC Library-Student-Faculty Building Room 144. Guests will have the opportunity to meet Talamine and hear about his career photographing the world's top rock bands since 1977. He will include a PowerPoint presentation of his one-of-a-kind photography. Light refreshments will be served.
By his count he has photographed at least 2,600 artists. His arty, creative, eye-popping and unusual images appear regularly in national magazines, newspapers and books.
Talamine explains his work, “I not only make them for my personal enjoyment, but for these musicians as well, many of whom have purchased the original prints. What attracts them to my work is the fact that they are in black and white. They know that I constantly experiment, take risks and always look and seek out the unusual.”
Many pieces are available for purchase. To obtain further information on Talamine visit www.Bobbytalamine.com
