Erica Allen Photo at Melanie Flood Projects

Last month, we interviewed local curator Melanie Flood.  Here's info on the latest photography show in her home: Exhibition Dates: November 8 -- December 2, 2009 Reception: Wednesday, November 11, 2009, 6-9pm

Melanie Flood Projects is pleased to present "Untitled Gentlemen", a solo exhibit of photographs by Erica Allen. splash

A series of fictional photographic portraits exploring representations and constructions of identity. Created with faces from contemporary barbershop hairstyle posters and figures from found studio photographs, this work gives new value and meaning to otherwise discarded and primarily functional photographs.


Erica Allen is a Brooklyn based artist originally from Oakland, California. She received her MFA in Photography from the School of Visual Arts in 2008. Recent awards included the Women in Photography (WIP-Lightside Individual Project) runner-up grant. She has previously exhibited at the Camera Club of New York, the Broadway Gallery and Visual Arts Gallery in New York City.


Melanie Flood Projects is a contemporary salon-style gallery operating from the home of Melanie Flood, aimed toward creating a comfortable environment for the enjoyment and dialogue of the arts. Artists & art lovers are offered a meeting place to come together in a personal, domestic setting.
