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.

  1. Devon (and others who may be interested in many different areas),

    Lafayette’s curriculum provides an incredible amount of flexibility. Students are not asked to officially declare their majors until the spring of their sophomore years. Science, English and photography classes are among our many offerings. Although we do not have an education major, students may prepare themselves to go on to earn teaching certification on the secondary level. At Lafayette, students are active participants in the learning process, and they are encouraged to take advantage of the many opportunities to cross educational boundaries. I invite you to visit our campus to learn more about this vibrant and exciting learning environment.

  2. I am searching for a college. I prefer not to declare a major the first year but lean toward the area of science. I am though, looking for guidance in the specific area of science. Teaching is a possible option. English has always been a favored area of study and I particularly enjoy writing poetry. I was invited to read a holocaust poem I wrote in front of the New Jersey Governor during Holocaust week. Important to me, is a school that offers classes in photography. I am very interested in photography and have taken three years of elective photography classes at high school. I am not however looking for a major in photography. A minor in photography would be an option, or at least classes where I can continue to pursue my interest.

    I would be interested in learning if Layfayette curriculum would be a match for the interests I’ve described.

    I am a capable and very grounded person.

    Thank You and best regards.
