November 8, 2014 - January 31, 2015

Artists Reception November 8, 2014, 5 to 7 pm
Penny Cook
I view the world through rose colored glasses. My family, personal history and ideology are an important part of my story telling. I love children, dislike confrontation, am continuously puzzled by acts of inhumanity. I believe in the contagiousness of laughter and the joy of music and art. My photography documents things that other people overlook, the serendipitous moments that make life interesting.
Rod Cook
Rod Cook worked as a commercial photographer in New York for the first twenty-five years of his career. He has also been managing editor of a magazine, helicopter pilot and partner in a design firm. He began his fine art career in 1996 with Cypress Knees and Tupelos, a series of nudes taken in cypress swamps. He has since created his own interpretations of botanicals, landscapes, masks, mannequins and statues. He works in platinum/palladium, digital black and white and color and invented color prints married with encaustic.
Julie Fraenkel
My recent work is a synthesis of play and metaphor, exploring my ideas with the most basic materials. Using papier maché, I reconnect with the joys of shaping forms, the materials informing the images, stripping down and clarifying my sense of the world.
Sven Martson
I prefer to find images. I photograph what is significant to me in the physical world. It is my hope to discover and record meaningful moments in this life through the process and craft of photography. I take photographs because it pleases me to capture and show something I've seen that had meaning for me.
Fethi Meghelli
Musicians, a glass of mint tea, women with long dresses, an airplane in flames, a taste of ashes, flowering trees, young brides, a burning heart, broken lives. War and peace, tragedies and hope. Dreams and realities. These are all elements that inspire, shape and guide my work.
Hank Paper
Following in the footsteps of Cartier Bresson, Garry Winogrand, Lee Friedlander and Helen Levitt has led me to my own beat in street photography. My images capture what otherwise escape notice – a revelation that alters our awareness, punctures pretension, and mines irony from surface appearances. Documenting contemporary culture and society in the streets of North America, The United Kingdom, Western Europe, the Middle East and Cuba, I try to turn the real into the surreal, the quotidian into the quintessential, the actual into a dream. In my vision warmth, wit and the quotidian truth reside within revelatory geometries. "We often don’t see what we might, but the camera does."
Jean Perkins
Sometimes what is lovely is also deadly.
Joe Saccio
My sculptures are in a variety of sizes and materials, ranging from installation size, for indoors or outdoors, to pedestal size and utilize both natural and synthetic materials. The majority of my work uses natural materials, primarily wood and found objects, joined together in a primitivistic manner, expressing personal feelings associated with myth and ritual, loss and rebirth.
Mark St. Mary
My photos are primarily taken in urban settings, usually somewhat off the main streets, and are often a visual representation of my emotional connection to the locations. I am drawn to patterns, textures, and juxtaposition of colors on structural surfaces that have come about through the additive or subtractive effects of nature and man. The weathered patina of a metal door, the scar of a tire impact on a concrete wall, the remediation of graffiti; all becoming something different when removed from context through the composition of the image. I try to create abstract pieces that are emotionally evocative, where the subject acquires a grace unavailable in context and becomes irrelevant. I name the pieces in such a way as to not stand between the viewer and the work, allowing the viewer's fantasy to shape his or her experience of the artwork.
Marjorie Gillette Wolfe
Marjorie Gillette Wolfe is a New Haven based photographer whose images show the landscape around us, often from an abstract or graphic point of view.
