Photography by art professors Karina Skvirsky and Greta Brubaker, Imogen Cain ’12 (Perkasie, Pa.), and Jack Fedak IV ’13 (Boulder, Colo.) is being featured in exhibits this month as part of the InVision: Month of Photography in the Lehigh Valley, sponsored by ArtsQuest.
Skvirsky and Brubaker are showing work in the Spectrum exhibition running through Nov. 20 at H. Paty Eiffe Art Gallery in the Haupert Union Building at Moravian College. A reception will be held 5 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 15, with a panel discussion on current trends in photography and academia featuring Skvirsky following at 6:30 p.m.
Spectrum is an eclectic photo-based exhibit featuring the work of photography professors from the Lehigh Valley. From historic techniques and traditional black and white photography to digital processes, the exhibition explores the range of work being produced and taught today in the area of photography. Artists also include Anne Chupa, Joe Elliott, Jeff Hurwitz, Kristine Kotsch, Lydia Panas, and Krista Steinke. Steinke, head of art at Moravian, serves as the exhibit curator.
Cain, an art major, and Fedak, an electrical and computer engineering major, were selected to show work in InVision’s College Photography Competition Exhibition running through Jan, 15, 2012, at the Banana Factory’s Hallway to the Arts. Award-winning photographer and ArtsQuest artist-in-residence Mark Cohen judged the competition.
Cain’s photo was one taken this fall in a laundromat in Easton for a Lafayette Digital Photography II class assignment on light. Fedak’s photo was one of many he took this summer when he spent six weeks as an artist-in-residence in a fishing town on Fogo Island, Newfoundland. The program is offered to Lafayette students as an opportunity to escape from the typical landscapes that surround Lafayette. It is funded by Mark and Johanna Chehi, parents of Ericka Chehi ’12.
