On Wednesday, October 11th, from 7:00 to 9:00pm, the monthly meeting of the OCAG Photo Group will host an evening with Amy Becker.
A recent recipient of a New Jersey Council on the Arts Fellowship Grant and widely exhibited and published artist, she’ll be presenting work, with a Q and A to follow. Becker’s work is interesting, provocative, and fun, and the evening, along with the opening reception for the exhibit, is not to be missed by anyone interested in visual art.
Amy Becker is an award-winning New Jersey-based photographer whose work typically depicts visual stories that emerge from the random interaction of everyday moments and found objects within their natural environments.
In 2021 Amy was awarded a Fellowship for photography from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts. Additionally, she had a solo show at Monmouth Museum in Lincroft, NJ, as part of the 2020-2021 New Jersey Emerging Artists Series. Beyond the Garden State, she has exhibited in museums and in nationally recognized fine art photography venues, such as the Center for Fine Art Photography in Colorado, Soho Photo in New York City, Houston Center of Photography, and Chicago’s Filter Photo Festival. Additionally, her work has been included in exhibitions in Philadelphia, Minneapolis, Providence, Vermont, and Oregon, as well as regional educational institutions. Media recognition of her work has appeared in The Guardian and many photography publications, including Lenscratch, Photo Review, and Fraction Magazine.
Amy is trained in both traditional and digital photography. Her formal background includes coursework at the International Center of Photography, as well as numerous workshops. A graduate of Boston University’s School of Communications, she enjoyed a career as a copywriter before becoming a photographer.
