"6 Days that Changed the World" Bill Eppridge's Beatles exhibition comes to WCSU

The late Bill Eppridge's remarkable exhibition of Beatles photographs, "6 Days that Changed The World" is on view at the Art Gallery at the Visual & Performing Arts Center at WCSU from January 19 through March 23d, 2016. Please note the opening has been postponed until Saturday, February 6 from 4 pm - 7 pm. There will also be a gallery talk with Adrienne Aurichio, Bill Eppridge's editor and wife, on Thursday, February 11 at 6:30 pm. The Art Gallery at the Visual & Performing Arts Center at WCSU's Westside Campus is located at 41 Lake Ave Extension, Danbury, CT.

Eppridge was a photojournalist's photojournalist at LIFE Magazine and Sports Illustrated, and his work is among the most iconic of his generation. He was given unfathomable access by today's standards, and conveyed a deep understanding of whatever subject he was covering. He was able to follow the Beatles on their first six days in the United States, generating a body of work that captures the energy of this young band as they were discovered by a nation already full of anticipation and heady adoration. His most famous photograph, some may recall, was of a busboy cradling a dying RFK, is just one outstanding image from a career made of many. 

The exhibit was first on view in 2014 at Bethel Center for the Arts on the site of the Woodstock Festival in upstate New York. A book of Eppridge's Beatles photographs, 6 Days that Changed the World was published by Rizzoli in 2014 to mark the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' arrival in the United States. Eppridge's work is represented by the Monroe Gallery of Photography in Santa Fe, New Mexico. 

The exhibit of 55 black-and-white gelatin silver prints was hand-darkroom-printed by Catherine Vanaria, who is an Assistant Professor of Art and Chair of the Art Department at Western Connecticut State University, as well as co-owner of Connecticut Photographics and Still River Editions.

There is an opening reception for an exhibit of the photographs of Bill Fields on Friday, January 22, from 6 - 8 pm at the Darien Library, 1441 Post Road, Darien, CT. The exhibit is on view until February 7, 2016.

Artist's Statement
"I enjoy a sense of order in my photography, in capturing patterns of people or objects in their environment with the smaller elements in an image adding interest and depth to the greater view. My work is in color and black-and-white, depending on which style I believe best conveys a scene. I am influenced by an admiration for a number of wonderful 20th century photographers, including but not limited to Brassai, Elliott Erwitt and William Eggleston. I have been taking photographs since I was a boy, when my tools were a Kodak Instamatic and a Polaroid Swinger. In this largely digital age, I sometimes still shoot film. Regardless of camera choice, my goal is producing photographs that cause someone to pause, wonder or smile."

Bill Fields has spent most of his career writing about and photographing sports, mainly golf, and for more than two decades he was senior editor at Golf World magazine. This exhibition of his personal work highlights the recurring theme of peace and solitude.
