Jackson Fine Art brings in two photography shows from different eras of the medium. The Selby Is In Your Place brings together the best work from a blog photographer that documents the hip and colorful homes of trend-setting contemporary people. New York, Paris, & Rome, on the other hand, is exhibition of black-and-white photographs from Elliott Erwitt, a contemporary of Henri Cartier-Bresson. The two artists bookend the last half-century of photography. The opening gets started at 6 pm. More details at Jackson Fine Art.
