Princeton Together

For four or five years I have been documenting the Princeton community. I have roamed the streets looking for scenes of daily life, and have gone to many special events. Most of the events pictured in this show were presented by the Arts Council! Among the events included in this show are the Halloween Parade, the Bollywood festival, and the Day of the Dead, as well as demonstrations in support of immigrant rights and the need to protect our environment. My hope is that this exhibit shows the wonderful diversity we have in this community and the ways that various groups support each other to both inform and entertain.

 

 

ABOUT THE ARTIST

My photographs are my visual diary. They record what I see at the time and reflect many of the experiences I have had over my lifetime. Most evident is my interest in people, especially children. Those are the interests which led me to be an elementary and secondary level teacher for most of my professional life. My other interests are Art and Architecture. I have worked both in an Art Gallery and in museums.

 

Cities provide me with endless opportunities to photograph people in a variety of environments. New York is a short bus ride from my home. Photographing there has led me to explore Urban life in several other countries. I have benefitted from participating in workshops in Paris, Rome, and Normandy (with Valerie Jardin), in Havana (with Doug Kaye), in Milan (with Steve Simon and Ugo Cei).

 

In addition, I have taken workshops in New York with Steve Simon, Valerie Jardin, Bob Sacha (through National Geographic Expeditions), and at the International Center of Photography with Karen Marshall, Jade Doskow, Richard Rothman, and Anja Hitzenberger.

 

I have also attended workshops in Miami (with Stella Johnson and Magdalena Sole at Street Photo Miami), in Boston (with Stella Johnson through Leica Academy), and in Rockport, Maine (with Peter Turnley, Karen Marshall, Vincent Versace, Jay Maisel, David Julian, Stella Johnson and Magdalena Sole at Maine Media Workshops).

 

In addition to attending travel workshops I have benefitted from participating in online workshops with Anja Hitzenberger, Edward Ratliff, Christine Callahan, Kai McBride, and Stefan Frank through Studelmedialive. I have also participated in online workshops with Vneet Vohra Through Miami Street Photography Festival, with Sarah Stolka and Jill Galloway Sherman at Philadelphia Photo Arts Center, with Arlene Collins through Maine Media and with Quinton Gordon through Leica Akademie.

 

I photograph with the Fuji XT-3, using 16mm,18mm, 23mm, 35mm lenses, and 56mm lenses. I also photograph with Fuji X100v. My post-processing is minimal. I use Lightroom, and D x O plug-ins. My goal is not to change or create the scene but to record it as unobtrusively as possible.

Art & About: Pottery in Action

-
[caption id="attachment_27876" align="aligncenter" width="1024"] .[/caption]

Presented by the Arts Council of Princeton, Art & About is a six-week series of public art-inspired pop-up experiences designed to activate our downtown and provide safe, creative experiences for our community.

 

Stop by to watch ACP Executive Director and ceramic artist Adam Welch in action on the potter’s wheel! Adam will be throwing new pieces on the wheel and auctioning off work from his collection. In further celebration of all things clay, the Arts Council has hidden five handmade ceramic pieces around town – from mugs, to bowls, to sculpture. If you find one, it’s yours to keep and you’ll receive a complimentary Family membership to the Arts Council!

 

 

Art and Music: Touching Sound

We hear music. But what does music look like? A picture is worth a thousand sounds. Art and music complement one another and form a connection. The stimuli from each strengthen the other. Artists find their inspiration from many sources.

 

The artists of Princeton Artists’ Alliance are collaborating with the musicians of Mobius Percussion in the exhibition Art and Music: Touching Sound. Inspired by the musicians’ performance of Paper Melodies (my music box music) composed by Jason Treuting of So Percussion, the visual artists have created paintings, drawings, and sculptures.

 

In this collaborative project, the artists have searched for their imagery through the original music. The musicians have the opportunity to see how visual artists interpret their work and likewise, artists have the opportunity to visually record the influence of musical sounds.

 

A recording of Paper Melodies will be playing in the gallery as visitors view the artwork. Standing before the art and listening to the musical score offers the viewer a richer sensory experience.

 

This exhibition will enhance the human experience between listening and seeing.

 

The artists have all created new works for this show. Art and Music: Touching Sound will reflect the varied interpretation and influence the same composition has for each artist. The viewer will experience their own connections with the visual sights and sounds.

 

Co-curated by Donna Payton and Kathleen Preziosi.
