Their collection is largely comprised of photographs by artists from the Czech Republic and former USSR. She will be joined by Jerry D. Gardner, who will speak directly about his passion for photography. The exhibition includes the work of 43 photographers whose images represent the use of abstraction and experimentation of the time period.
