The Caldbeck Gallery, 12 Elm St., will open “Black White + Blue,” a solo exhibition of photographs by John Goodman of Friendship and Boston, Wednesday, July 10, with a reception for the artist from 6 to 8 pm.

The show, which will run through Aug. 10, offers 32 images selected from four decades of work, including vintage prints, modern silver gelatin prints and archival color pigment prints dating from 1973 to 2013.

The subject matter in the images for this exhibit draws from several bodies of work. Two of these are Goodman’s acclaimed book on boxing, “The Times Square Gym,” and his well-known portfolio of backstage Boston Ballet images. Since 1975, Goodman has worked as an editorial and fashion photographer, while consistently working on his personal projects.  In the past three years, he has been reviewing decades of black and white negatives and color slides. Selections from this recent harvesting of so many accomplished images have been exhibited at the University of Maine Museum of Art in Bangor, Boston’s Howard Yezerski Gallery and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Goodman is adjunct professor at the Art Institute of Boston and an instructor at the Maine Media Workshops in Rockport.

Upstairs at the Caldbeck, selected works by Elizabeth Awalt, Jeff Epstein, Frederic Kellogg, Jenifer Mumford, Antonia Munroe, Jan Rosenbaum, Susan Williams and John Woolsey will be on view. Gallery hours are Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sundays from 1 to 4 p.m. For more information, call 594-5935 or email
