DELAWARE ART MUSEUM
April 23, 2014
The Delaware Art Museum is pleased to present Transitions: The Brandywine Photo Collective, an exhibition showcasing 21 regional photographers from the Brandywine Photo Collective. On view May 3 – August 10, 2014, the exhibition will feature approximately 30 photographs inspired by the forms and moods of the natural world. The Brandywine Photo Collective is a nonprofit arts and educational organization with the mission to encourage and develop the artistic vision of those who love photography, and to share their vision with the world.
Transitions: The Brandywine Photo Collective is part of the Delaware Art Museum’s Outlooks Exhibition Series, which encourages community involvement through the creation of exhibitions hosted by the Museum. The artists featured include Elisabeth Bard, Kathy Buckalew, Roman Coia, John Foltz, Ken Francis, Mickey Freed, Jim Graham, Beth Harpham, Kerry Harrison, Peter Kaplan, Jane Koester, William Lindsey, Lynn Maniscalco, Gerry Meekins, Barbara Proud, Harold Ross, Danny Schweers, Jeffrey Steen, Beth Trepper, Debbie Webb, and Carson Zullinger. Kathy Buckalew and Danny Schweers are exhibition coordinators for Transitions: The Brandywine Photo Collective and Studio Art instructors at the Delaware Art Museum.
“We are very excited to be part of the Outlooks Series at the Delaware Art Museum,” says photographer Kathy Buckalew. “Through this exhibition, we reveal an unfolding process or a brief moment in time, a reminder of the always-changing world around us. It is up to us as photographers, we who see and interpret the world around us, to portray this concept as something concrete, something real that others can see and relate to.”
Eddie Soloway was the juror for the Brandywine Photo Collective’s selection process for this exhibition. A nationally recognized photographer and teacher, Soloway was the first recipient of The Santa Fe Center for Visual Arts’ Excellence in Photographic Teaching Award.
June 8, July 13, and August 3 | 1:00 p.m.
Artists from the exhibition Transitions: The Brandywine Photo Collective will discuss their work at these exciting gallery talks. Free.
