Recent Acquisitions at Paul Paletti Gallery

Even with more than 1500 pieces in his personal collection, Paul Paletti just keeps collecting. Whether it’s auction wins, finds from his yearly trip to Paris Photo or purchases made during our own Louisville Photo Biennial, there is always something new to see. Fortunately for photography fans his collection is personal but not private and the gallery’s newest show will highlight some historic, and fun, new additions. 

This is an eclectic mix of the current and the aged, the beautiful and the strange. From traditional black and white nudes to historic documentary works of 1960’s Harlem and classic celebrity portraits, the new works are as varied as they are interesting. Sharing the walls are works by: Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Jack Welpott, Bruce Davidson, Shelby Lee Adams, Karl Blossfeldt, Yousef Karsh, Flor Garduno, Lynn Geesaman, and printmaker/painter Bruce Muirhead (Paul’s first art professor, who he credits with subverting his life path.) We’re also happy to feature two beautiful mordancage works by Kentucky artist and Georgetown College professor, Darrell Kincer.
