Utilizing over a decade of steady performing, Quinn has developed a unique and progressive style – one that appeals to a wide variety of music listeners with fans ranging from the jam band hippies to the jazz snobs.

Interwoven Stories International

 

Diana Weymar developed Interwoven Stories  as 2016 Artist-in-Residence at the Arts Council of Princeton and returns to curate over 250 pages from Princeton, The Peddie School, the Nantucket Stitching Gam, the Zen Hospice Project (San Francisco), Open Space Art (Damascus, Syria), Build Peace (Colombia), the University of Puget Sound (Tacoma), Yarns/NoDominion Theatre (Jersey City), and Trans Tipping Point Project (Victoria, BC).

“This show will be a homecoming for the pages that were created in Princeton and a welcoming for pages from other places”, says Weymar. “As an international project that originated in Princeton, it’s extremely exciting to see how the pages first created in this community have inspired people around the world to create to join the collective narrative.”

Often I am asked how long I have been doing photography. The quick answer is about 40 years. To start, my wife, Jean, encouraged me to pursue photography since I already liked it. For a Christmas present she gave me a photo / darkroom course offered by Bob Denby at Princeton Day School. The bug bit me and I have been doing it ever since.

Working in the finance field for a career, I had little time to do as much photo work as I wanted. For many years, I still managed to stay up half the night printing images in my dark room. When the photo industry produced a photo printer that made prints as good as or better that I could do in the darkroom, I switched from film to digital.

When I retired from the world of investments in 2010, I was invited to join Gallery 14 as a member. At that point I could devote as much time to photography as I wanted. To create a show, I learned to think in portfolio concepts because as a member of the Gallery I had to hang shows at least once a year. That meant producing 20 to 30 images all on one subject or an artistic concept. The Images here were part of a Gallery 14 show in 2013.
