Photography 36 Awards Exhibition

Featuring Three Outstanding Artists in Photography

On View March 10- April 7, 2018

Meet the Artists Reception: Second Saturday, March 10, 2018  6 – 9pm

 

Works by:

                                                           

Carlos Chan– originally from Manila, Philippines and currently residing in Philadelphia, Pa., “I primarily shoot urban landscapes because I am most at home in cities and because I find them endlessly fascinating. I like making sense of how they work, of what holds them together, of what makes them tick. The sheer organization alone that goes into them is, to me, a source of wonder and beauty”.

 

 

 

 

Philip “Dutch” Bagley – “Photography can never grow up if it imitates some other medium. It has to walk alone; it has to be itself”, from Berenice Abbott. This quote has encouraged my visual sense of direction…my pre-visualization of the final image as I am viewing and capturing the scene; see it, capture it, develop it and present it”.

 

 

Stuart Lehrman,” My work is inspired from the natural and man made phenomena I observe in the world around me. The historical context of my work is that of Abstract Expressionism, Post-painterly Abstraction, Color Field painting and Minimalism.”

 

 

 

 

Philip Carroll, Curator and Karen Chigounis, Executive Director selected each artist, “For their level of professionalism and mastery of the medium through Photography”, which has been the mainstay of Perkins Center for the Arts Photography Annual Exhibition, now in its 37th year.

 

This exhibition is presented through a grant from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, A Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts and Discover Jersey Arts.

Space Lines Exhibition

Perkins Center for the Arts, Collingswood presents Space Lines an exhibition  with a unique perspective through drawing,  mixed media, construction and 3 dimensional  sculpture.

Bobbie Adams, “ I am most interested in examining, pondering, and portraying aspects of the physical world. I have come to love the subjects of my childhood that I ignored back then – anatomy, physics, mathematics – and am intrigued with the challenge of portraying an essence or idea, of fundamental natural phenomena..”

 Justine Ditto, Is a recent graduate of the Pennsylvania Academy of the fine Arts, “ My images are influenced by cell structures, wave patterns, and topographical contours; ancient and modern architecture, . By using a variety of materials such as wire, fabric, paper, and various forms of print, I can layer more deeply and create a material richness with my mixed media sculptures.”

Oki Fukunaga ,  Uses wire coat hangers that manage to successfully celebrate and rise above the familiar hanger. The resulting sculptures are delicate constructions that have a powerful presence of weight and mass . The imaginative creations offer the viewer an exciting display of fluctuating forms and patterns in space.
