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.

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.

Photographs & History
Explore the role social and industrial history play in his work which includes his ongoing project, From the Mainline: a contemporary survey of the former Pennsylvania Railroad and the influence of the industrial age on the American landscape. 

 

Join photographer and educator Michael Froio to explore the role social and industrial history play in his work which includes his ongoing project, From the Mainline a contemporary survey of the former Pennsylvania Railroad. Michael’s work draws inspiration from visual media of a historical nature to inform and inspire contemporary works on subjects centered around the influence of the industrial age on the American landscape.

Through exploring both building and place within the American landscape, Michael’s work reveals an era where industry, wealth and power impacted the land. His work examines the remarkable architecture and engineering projects for the good of the people as well as the remains of a post-industrialized nation in the back lots, wooded areas and small towns throughout the Northeast region. Represented here are three major projects: The Watershed Series is some of the earliest works, exploring the impact of man on the diverse landscape of the Delaware River Watershed. The Relic series highlights prominent historic buildings in the Philadelphia region that served the public for many years and have either been lost, restored or repurposed. Finally the ongoing project From the Mainline examines the former Pennsylvania Railroad, once the largest railroad in the world. Highlighting its massive infrastructure and groundbreaking engineering accomplishments the project also considers the historic landscape it travels through.
