Currently on view at Quogue Gallery is “Lauren Lyons: A Bender of Fiction,” an exhibition running through December 31. On view are 12 of the artist’s large scale provocative photographs from highly stylized shoots that the artist conceived and styled over the course of the past 20 years. The exhibition represents the first time these photographs are being exhibited formally together in a gallery.
Lyons is a self-taught photographer who got her start decades ago photographing musicians in Philadelphia and New York City. Over the years, she has made photographs for album covers, promotions, concerts, and festivals and worked with record labels, magazines, concert promoters, A&R scouts, and advertising agencies.
Born in Southern Delaware in 1969, Lyons moved to Philadelphia about 30 years ago. As a result of her love of music and her involvement with the music industry as a photographer for many years, she was selected to be a voting member of the Grammys and held that distinction for 18 years. The artist lives and works in Philadelphia and Quogue.
Quogue Gallery is at 44 Quogue Street in Quogue. For more information, visit quoguegallery.com.
