Mariette Pathy Allen, Photographer
ClampArt is pleased to announce “Transformations”— Mariette Pathy Allen’s first solo show with the gallery.
Mariette Pathy Allen has been photographing the transgender community for over forty years. Through her artistic practice, she has been a pioneering force in gender consciousness, contributing to numerous cultural and academic publications about gender variance and lecturing across the globe. Her first book, published in 1990, was titled Transformations: Crossdressers and Those Who Love Them. The publication was groundbreaking in its investigation of a misunderstood community.
The series “Transformations” started with black-and-white images in New Orleans on the last day of Mardi Gras 1978: “[W]hen by fluke, I stayed at the same hotel as a group of crossdressers, one of whom became a friend,” writes Allen. “This chance meeting took me into a mostly closeted world of men who need to express their ‘feminine sides. . .’ Realizing early on that I had stumbled upon something potentially liberating and almost completely misunderstood, I set out to ‘de-freakify,’ and to offer a different view.”

Barbara Beeman, Photographer
As the world climate changes and becomes more rainy in our area, I decided to make use of those extra puddles lying around. We often pass by puddles as we rush on our way after a storm but perhaps we should be looking into the surrealistic world of puddles. Certainly, we looked harder at them when we were small and grabbed our boots to stomp on some puddles in our yards or out on the street. We didn’t always look at those puddles, but perhaps we should be examining this representation of a reflected world. The puddles are mirrors to the soul and present alternate dreams to what we see every day in our lives.

Machines of Interest
Stephen Mallon, Photographer
Critically acclaimed photographer Stephen Mallon shares a collection of some of his most captivating, riveting, and thought-provoking pieces in his new exhibit at NMIH. Join us as we explore Machines of Interest and embark upon the journey of the industrial lifecycle and uncover the stories of their existence. The exhibit features over two dozen original prints from the artist’s collection spanning life on the rails to deconstruction in the recycling yard to tracing the elements of human-made machines. Stephen’s work will give you a look at industry like never before.
Housed in the former Electric Repair Shop of the Bethlehem Steel plant site on the vibrant SteelStacks arts & culture campus in Pennsylvania, the NMIH interprets industry past, present and future through dynamic exhibits, hands-on interactives and engaging programs. Visitors of all ages can enjoy the stories of the people, machines and ideas that transformed our nation through a rich collection of rare artifacts including the esteemed 1876 Smithsonian Industrial collection.

Clark James Mishler, Photographer
Since moving to Calistoga in 2015, editorial photographer Clark James Mishler has taken hundreds of photo portraits as part of an ongoing “portrait a day” project that appears in the Calistoga Tribune. Now, Mishler collects many of those shots in the new exhibit, “Calistogans,” that captures locals in all facets of their everyday life. Some of the photos are funny, some are poignant, and all are uniquely Calistogan.

Dorothea Lange: Words & Pictures
The first major MoMA exhibition of Lange’s in 50 years brings iconic works from the collection together with less seen photographs—from early street photography to projects on criminal justice reform. The work’s complex relationships to words show Lange’s interest in art’s power to deliver public awareness and to connect to intimate narratives in the world.
