DALLAS –The Bath House Cultural Center presents Past and Present, a photography exhibition by Dallas artist Kathleen Wilke, September 4-October 2, 2010. An opening reception with the artist will be held on Saturday, September 4, 2010 from 7 to 9 PM. Both the exhibition and the reception are free and open to the public.
Past and Present features a collection of underwater imagery and photographs of White Rock Lake landscapes by Dallas fine art photographer Kathleen Wilke. A compilation of color and monochromatic underwater photographs from her series Lady of the Lake, along with present figurative and narrative work will be on display in this show. This will be the first exhibition in which Ms. Wilke that will showcase her landscape photography on wood surfaces.

Kathleen Wilke was born in Youngstown Ohio, and raised in Cincinnati. She attended both the Art Academy of Cincinnati, and the Art Institute of Boston, where she studied photography and illustration. Ms. Wilke began her photography career in portraiture, which later evolved into fine art, landscapes, and her specialty: underwater photography. Her underwater work captures unique moments that only could be achieved with the magic water creates, the model's effortless buoyancy, and the play of light and reflection, making a true work of art. Kathleen's images are sometimes one image that stands alone in its beauty, or she creates more complex photographs, using multiple digital files to complete her vision.
