Heritage Preservation Days

Heritage Preservation Days is a digitization project that provides the opportunity to preserve family heritage through digitization.

Join Perkins Center at GCLS Glassboro Public Library! 

 

 

 

Community members are welcome to bring in family heirlooms that relate to foodways and cultural food traditions such as, aged photographs, negatives, heirloom cooking instruments, handwritten recipes, handcrafted pottery, back-dated news articles, traditional herbal remedies, heritage farming and gardening tools, passed-down cook books, ancestral holiday linens and artwork.

There will also be a Sharing Station, where participants can tell stories associated with their treasures. Participants may also choose to have the stories recorded in the Oral History Booth.

Attendees will be gifted a high-quality digital copy of their artifacts and stories as family keepsakes to pass down to next generations. The photographs will be scanned, the artifacts will be photographed, and the stories will be recorded by audio. Each entry will be documented by metadata.

We anticipate the collections to be housed on the NJ Digital Highway, once it is established. Some will be shared on Perkins’ and funders’ websites. With permissions of the owners, selected items will be showcased at the Tastefully South Jersey Exhibition that will be held in Collingswood July through August. 

This project is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the New Jersey Council for the Humanities.

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.

Photography 35 Awards Exhibition

Website Header_Photo Awards 35 2017MARCH 11 – APRIL 8

Artist Reception

March 11th, 6-9pm

 

Perkins Center for the Arts in Collingswood Photography  35  Award Winners Exhibition featuring three outstanding artists in their field of photography from last year’s Photography 35 Exhibition. Philip Carroll, curator and Karen Chigounis, Director selected each artist, “ For their level of professionalism and mastery of the medium through Photography”, which has been the mainstay  of our Photography Exhibitions now in its 36th year.

Howard Brunner says of his work, “My favorite thing to do is to walk through the urban environment and photograph whatever grabs my interest. Over the years, these urban walks have evolved into a spiritual practice— a walking meditation of sorts.” Barbara Warren says, “What are dreams? Some feel that dreams are messages from our subconscious; some feel that they are the brain’s way of sweeping out the detritus of the day. Whatever they are, I think dreams hold a particular fascination for all of us. Dreams are built from concrete elements of our day to day existence, but the elements are combined in ways that are mysterious, ambiguous, but also meaningful.” Joe Hocker, “While I am truly in love with the intimacy of a contact print and the richness and detail that can come with it, they are somewhat counter to the goal of photographs which is to allow the viewer to enter the scene. To that end I’ve made a series of large prints and created situations in which the viewer can experience the space.”

The Collingswood gallery for Perkins Center for the Arts is dedicated to visual excellence. The curators select worthy artists that have achieved a level of professional proficiency in their respective careers.
