Openhouse Gallery hosted artist Adam Port and showed off the work of baseball photographer Charles Conlon Monday night. The event, presented by John Rogers Photo Archives, featured Conlon’s classic photography from the early 20th century. Conlon, a New York-based photographer, documented America’s pastime in its early days. He captured some of the greatest moments in baseball, and many of his pieces were on the walls at Openhouse.
Port, a Long Island-based painter, recreated many of Conlon’s pieces. Port’s pieces are so real, they require a double take, and his clients include the National Basketball Association, MTV, Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club, Topps, Ronald McDonald House, Michael Jordan, Allen Iverson, Ray Lews and many more. Check out some of the pictures from the Adam Port + Charles Conlon exhibition presented by John Rogers Photo Archive.
