"Palaces Partially Destroyed" exhibit opens at Fisher's Patricia O'Keefe Ross Art Gallery
Who lets so fair a house fall to decay, Which husbandry in honour might uphold Against the stormy gusts of winter’s day And barren rage of death’s eternal cold? ---Sonnet 13.



ROCHESTER, NY.- St. John Fisher College hosts Bob Graham’s “Palaces Partially Destroyed” exhibit in the Patricia O’Keefe Ross Art Gallery in the Joseph S. Skalny Welcome Center. A reception celebrating the opening of the exhibit, which features photography from his new book by the same name, will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 7.

The exhibit’s title refers to a 1926 painting by the Swiss artist, Paul Klee, called Palace, Partially Destroyed. Graham has put together his own take on a theme visited by many painters and photographers and his meditation depicts the inevitable decline of people special to him, as well as the decline of places and things. Quotations from William Shakespeare complement Graham’s photographs, which were taken between 1966 and 2015.

“All the people, structures and other nouns in these photographs are, or at one time were, palaces; valued to some degree, in one way or another because they are palaces in the broadest sense of the term; and because of the resonant beauty to be found in their individual declines as captured by the camera,” wrote Graham in the exhibit’s theme statement.

A native of Penfield, New York, Graham earned his bachelor’s degree from St. John Fisher College and his master’s degree from the University of Rochester. He taught history and literature for many years at the middle and high school grade levels. Palaces Partially Destroyed is his fourth book for Blurb Publishing and his eighth gallery exhibit.

Graham’s exhibit runs until Friday, Nov. 20. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. It is free and open to the public.
