February 2016 Exhibitions
Richard Gardner - A Note for Juliet
A Note for Juliet, shows a unique floral series of black and white photographs. A collection of atmospheric blossoms has been created as a tribute to the memory of Juliet Man Ray, wife of the Surrealist artist Man Ray. The selection is named for a Haiku I wrote many years ago for my dear friend Juliet, shortly after her death.
Breath in autumn chill
I touched the flower
The very last rose
Tony Kirman - Gestures
Light tells us what time it is, and then time tells us something else.
A camera gesture, with an exposure of half a second or longer, causes light rays focused by the lens to be distributed in a spontaneous way across the sensor - ICM, Intentional Camera Movement.
The evidential nature of the photographic image is replaced by a celebration of the fluid and complex nature of reality.
Joan Lemler - Color Contained
I have photographed alongside the New Jersey Turnpike for many years but recently decided to focus on the shipping containers near Elizabeth and Harrison.
I am drawn to their geometric blocks of color. I seek places where these symbols of industry are juxtaposed against marshland, open skies and diesel trains, or stacked like a mosaic. To me this creates an interesting, layered composition. And, when I have the right light, these mundane industrial scenes become beautiful.
Paul S. Stetzer Jr. - Always - At the Seashore
I seem to have been only a boy playing on the seashore and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me. - Isaac Newton
the borders of land and sea
reward my patient waiting and watching
with beauty, calm, inspiration, solitude, insight
as the constant kissing of the shore by the waves
coalesces into a sense
Diana Jun & Rebecca Pine - The Breast and the Sea
The Breast and the Sea is a written and photographic project capturing the strength and beauty of breast cancer survivors. Photographer, Miana Jun, and author/survivor, Rebecca Pine, share stories and photographs of participants, with scars bared in the sea. “It has been healing because I was able to expose my scars without judgment and without fear . . . knowing that the photos of me will help someone else to heal.” –Lauren, participant
