Featuring Three Outstanding Artists in Photography
On View March 10- April 7, 2018
Meet the Artists Reception: Second Saturday, March 10, 2018 6 – 9pm
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.
