The ROBERT KLEIN GALLERY and ARS LIBRI, LTD., are honored to present the intimate and lyrical landscapes of REBECCA NORRIS WEBB. The exhibition, Rebecca Norris Webb: My Dakota, will open at Ars Libri on Friday, October 5, as part of the South End's First Friday. 

The installation will feature photographs from My Dakota (Radius Books), Norris Webb's 2012 monograph. A poet by training and a photographer by trade, Norris Webb returned home to South Dakota in 2005 to make pictures. Norris Webb was initially spurred by a longing for open space and the distinctive geography of the American West. A year into the project, however, her brother unexpectedly passed away. My Dakota became an exploration of loss and landscape, what Norris Webb calls, "grief's expansiveness -- the prairie unfolding in me."

With her husband and creative partner, Magnum photographer ALEX WEBB, Norris Webb completed Violet Isle: A Duet of Photographs from Cuba in 2009. The couple's photographs were exhibited at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, in 2011.

An opening reception for Rebecca Norris Webb: My Dakota at Ars Libri will be held on Friday, October 5, from 5:30 to 7:30 PM. The general public is welcome; light refreshments will be served.

Norris Webb and Webb will give a free public slide talk on Friday, October 12, from 7 to 8:30 PM at the GRAND CIRCLE GALLERY in Boston's Fort Point. The Webbs will also give a free gallery talk at Ars Libri on Saturday, October 13, from 4 to 5 PM.

For the past fifteen years, Norris Webb has been using her camera to explore the complicated relationship between people and the natural world. Originally a poet, Norris Webb graduated from Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism in 1989. She published her first book of photographs, The Glass Between Us, in 2006. Norris Webb's work is in the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the International Museum of Photography at the George Eastman House, among others. Her photographs have also appeared in TimeLe Monde Magazine, and Orion.

Ars Libri is an internationally renowned rare bookdealer in the field of art, architecture, and photography. The Robert Klein Gallery, established in 1980, ranks among the world's most prestigious showrooms of fine art photography. In June 2012, the Gallery began a long-term collaboration with Ars Libri to host satellite installations in the bookstore at 500 Harrison Avenue. Exhibits at Ars Libri supplement the Robert Klein Gallery's shows with additional works and printed material. New installations at Ars Libri open on the first Friday of every month.
