SALISBURY, MD---To some, children’s toys and home décor items might be everyday objects found around the house. To photographer Jeanne Anderton, they’re building blocks for art.

Anderton juxtaposes household items with 15th century religious and political icons found in Italian Renaissance paintings and sculpture to create the pieces in the exhibit “The Science of Perspective,” hanging at the Atrium Gallery in Salisbury University’s Guerrieri University Center May 3-26. An opening reception is 5-7 p.m. Friday, May 7.

“The viewer is invited to explore the images in a modern context while questioning the meaning of the photographs and that of familiar Renaissance art,” Anderton said. Works in the exhibit are digital images printed on canvas.

The artist earned her M.F.A. in art photographic process from Syracuse University. The owner of CJZ Photography in Salisbury, she has taught at SU since 1998. For more than two decades, her images have earned prestigious awards. In 1987, she received a Golden Light Award as one of the top 10 photographers of the Maine Photographic Workshops. In 2009, she earned a Maryland State Individual Artist Award.

Her work has been featured in several books including Exploring Color Photography by Robert Hirsh and The I Want to EggScape Book by Mitzi Perdue. Her work is included in collections at the Center for American Studies at the University of Iasi, Romania, and the University of Delaware.

Gallery hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Wednesday. Sponsored by University Galleries, admission is free and the public is invited.
