Paul Paletti has been collecting photography for over 25 years and he invites the public to enjoy his most recent acquisitions. These new pieces exhibit a wide variety of styles and exemplify the true beauty of photography as an artistic medium as well as a means of documenting our culture and our time.
This exhibit features several photos of Muhammad Ali , including Flip Schulke’s famous underwater training shot, Neil Leifer’s picture used for Ali’s Wheaties cover and an unused cereal box signed by the Champ.
The stars have also come out to celebrate with images of Frank Sinatra at JFK’s inauguration party and of Marilyn Monroe filming her last movie, “Something’s Gotta Give”.
Also included in this show are works by E. J. Bellocq, Howard Bond, Richard Bram, Linda Butler, Lois Connor, William Clift, Judy Dater, Jay Dussard, Alfred Eisenstadt, David Alan Harvey, Michael Kenna, Lynn Leonard and Aaron Siskind.
Since opening in 2001, the Paul Paletti Gallery has exhibited historic and contemporary photographic artworks of museum quality in which the photographer combines a superlative degree of technical virtuosity along with a distinctive vision. Located in the heart of Louisville’s East Market Street Gallery District (NuLu), the gallery’s permanent collection and its rotating exhibits educate the public about photography as a sophisticated art medium that is varied, beautiful and highly collectible. The Paul Paletti Gallery is the only gallery in Kentucky exclusively dedicated to museum quality fine art photography.
Let’s celebrate Muhammad Ali’s Birthday!
The show will open Tuesday, January 17 with a special reception celebrating the 75th birthday of Louisville’s own Muhammad Ali, from 6-8pm. We hope you can join us!
