“Peaceful Light” Olga Popova – Indianapolis Artsgarden – Aug. 27, 2003 – 2 stars

Twelve photos from seven countries hang along the South end of the Artsgarden. And in the tradition of Artsgarden exhibits, it's pretty uneventful. Though Popova claims professional fashion and travel photography under her belt, these works fall short when compared to the plethora of local work found at the Photography Gallery. They are images you think you've seen before -snap and click documents of exotic scenery, The mostly calm images with balmy/hazy atmospheres aren't totally without merit. A 1999 black and white image of NYC captures a mirrored image of city life in patterns against a building's windows with more awareness than seen the other works. Her vision in this show is definitely not unique, Through Aug 29, 2003. 317-631-3301. – Mary Lee Pappas
