September 9, 2018 Artist Reception

Photographs of Charles V. McDonald


Gallery 1855 is pleased to announce the solo exhibition of artist Charles V. Mcdonald. Charles is frequently spotted camera in hand documenting the exciting world of sports, arts and charitable events. His latest solo exhibition “Some Play and Even More Cheer” will be a must-see exhibition. The show will run throughout September and a special art reception will be held on Sunday, September 9th from 1-4:00 pm.

“The name of my solo photographic exhibition “Some Play & Even More Cheer” was originally intended to picture athletes engaged in playing their sport vs. the pictures of non-engaged spectators. A very simple contrast between the two. Or, so I thought.

I knew exactly which of my photographs to highlight as my “featured” or “title piece” for the solo exhibition. It is the one of spectators lined around the roller-skating track out at The Rink facility (off Bradshaw and Route 50).

And yet, that very image quickly became its own contradiction. Yes, the spectators were not active skaters, but in my photograph, they do appear to be both actively engaged in the action and many look to be emotionally involved in the outcome.

My vision for this photographic exhibition soon expanded to incorporate other dual interpretations derived from subjects that I photographed.” Says Charles V. McDonald.

Gallery 1855 is non-profit, contemporary gallery located at the Davis Cemetery District office. Visitors are welcome to enjoy the beautiful grounds, enjoy a treat courtesy of the cemetery and take in the fine art at the most unique gallery in the region. Details can be found at
