In the Gallery Through 12/17: “John Garvey Timmons—A Celebration of the Work and Creative Life of John Timmons”

Posted by Melissa Lamar - December 17, 2015 - 20150902-3409

The public is invited to the retrospective exhibition “John Garvey Timmons—A Celebration of the Work and Creative Life of John Timmons” in the Wallace Barnes and Barbara Hackman Franklin Art Gallery Nov. 6-Dec. 17. An opening reception will be held Nov. 6 from 5-8 p.m., which will feature some of Timmons’ short films in adjacent Room 6-127. Refreshments will be served.
Timmons (1954-2014) was an artist, photographer, filmmaker and musician. Approximately 70 photographs and collages, selected to tell his stories and show the images and objects that had meaning to him, will be on view as the music he wrote plays in the gallery.
Timmons was also an employee of Tunxis Community College for over 30 years, most recently as a professor and department chair of the arts and media department. He taught art history, photography and art appreciation courses until his retirement in 2013.
His work has been described as “a jigsaw of objects that puzzle the mind with aesthetic harmonies and associative discord.” Timmons liked to find new ways of storytelling through technique and the newest technology. He appreciated the instantaneous result of the Polaroid camera because there was no chance for manipulation of light or quality of the print, and loved using inexpensive pieces of equipment to produce photographs that captured a precise moment in time.
Timmons was a resident of Collinsville. He attended the State University of New York at Potsdam and later earned a master of fine arts degree from Ohio University.
The exhibition was made possible with support from Jerry’s Artarama of West Hartford. The Barnes-Franklin Art Gallery is open Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m.-8 p.m. and by appointment. For more information, call 860.773.1974 or email asimoes@tunxis.edu.
