MARCH 11 – APRIL 8
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.
