'Tavern League' Photographer Carl Corey in West Bend
Photographer Carl Corey will be at the Museum of Wisconsin Art in West Bend talking about his exhibit and new book, Tavern League: Portraits of Wisconsin Bars
. He will be speaking as part of a program called The Moment, an evening of food, art and conversation. There will be books for sale, and Carl Corey will be available to sign books.
With a view both familiar and undeniably unique, perceptibly eerie but somehow warmly inviting, photographer Carl Corey's pictures in "Tavern League" capture the Wisconsin public house as it is today. The 60 pictures collected here are awash with a sense of place - the lingering tang of cigarette smoke, the feel of a gritty floor as a bar stool is pushed back, the ease of sinking into a dimly lit womb of good company and cold beer. Supernaturally vivid colors intertwine with distinctly average vignettes to reveal the magical, and fleeting, quality of these singular places and the people who love them.
