Buck's Along I-75 Near Bowling Green shows billboards advertising Hampton Inn and Days Inn standing amidst crops and against black trees, while a white farmhouse and barn anchor the right side of the scene. The signs are a reminder that the shapes of these landscapes reflect commerce spreading out across the land. At the same time, these images offer the bracing clarity of open spaces, big sky, and lots of air.
Also at the Krause Gallery are photos by Michael Gottlieb and Shane Prine. Gottlieb's color shots of a gondola in Venice or a lighthouse silhouetted against a purple sunset in Rhode Island are postcard pretty, but could use more substance. Prine's black-and-white studies of charismatically crumbling rooms inside a home (perhaps being renovated?) feel like an artist nosing around but not yet finding the visual focal points that could make these shots come alive.
