Ordover is best known for his work that takes advantage of reflections to give an abstract or impressionist feel to images from nature. He has been featured in galleries from New York to California, and curates the Ordover Gallery at the San Diego Natural History Museum in Balboa Park.
“We are so thrilled to have Abe Ordover’s remarkable photography on display here at our City Gallery,” said San Diego City College President Anthony Beebe. “This is an extraordinary opportunity for both City College and the entire community.”
The City Gallery exhibit is a 35-piece retrospective with a focus on Ordover’s more recent work. All of the prints displayed will be donated to City College at the conclusion of the exhibition.
The exhibition continues through March 15. The gallery is open Tuesday through Thursday from noon to 5 p.m., and Friday from noon to 6 p.m. Admission is free.
The gallery opened in the fall of 2014 in the college’s new five-story Arts & Humanities building at 1508 C Street in downtown San Diego.
