GALLERY 1 Kris Schoenleder
Photography has been a passion of mine since childhood. I can remember using my father’s Kodak to grab pictures of just about everything. Now as an adult, I’m lucky enough to have a career as a broadcast news photographer. I have been working in news for over 20 years, and have been honored with several NY Emmy nominations, along with winning two NY Emmys.
In the last few years I’ve had a number of pieces in many local and international art shows, coming away with several Best in Shows. Some of my photos were also chosen for publication in a variety of photography books and travel magazines.
I love to show my work, and let my photos take people into a different world. A picture can stir up all sorts of emotions, and I hope that my shots can make that kind of impact on the audience. My ultimate goal is to produce images that are almost hyper-realistic, but do not slip into the look of other-worldly.
Since I started studying and learning photography using film, I always find myself drawn to a more simple shot. I’ll look to black and white, sharp lines, patterns and strong contrast over intense colors and busy scenes. My work projects calm and quiet, loneliness and a connection with the landscape. I tend to keep people out of my shot – I want to convey the feel of being the last person on Earth and one with nature. www.kgsphoto.com
Print Group “Women on the Cutting Edge – A Fresh Perspective of Printmaking”
They say that tools with cutting edges should be kept sharp. The tools used by the Printmakers of the Ocean County Artists Guild are always being sharpened as are the Artists’ skills when it comes to this arduous medium. Printmaking requires drawing, carving and a keen knowledge of color to create a vibrant outcome. The Artists hone their skills by keeping up to date on new techniques and disciplines in the fields of drawing, painting, color and sculpture. All of these contribute to the perfection of the printing craft.
This year Cassie Krauss, Arlette Malivernier, Jo Guscott, Clara Sue Beym and Leslie Ovechka are proud to present the very latest of their prints showcasing fresh ideas, techniques and subject matter.
See for yourself as these Artists carry on the traditions of famous Printmakers like Durer, Picasso and the German Expressionists but in their own truly unique ways.
Printmaking is a time-honored fine art medium brought into a new century by our Women on the Cutting Edge.
