SILHOUETTE SNAPSHOTS

JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2022

ARTISTS BEV THOMPSON and MARSHA PERUO CAPTURE SILHOUETTES, SHADOWS AND ILLUSIONS THRU A UNIQUE AND CREATIVE LENS. THEIR EYE CAPTURES CONTRASTING LIGHT AND DARK, STRAIGHT AND CURVED LINES, FIGURE-GROUND TEXTURES AND COLOR FOR ENHANCED CONTRAST.

Bev Thompson has been behind one lens, or another, since her first Brownie camera, then thru her mom’s Polaroid. Later on, her 35mm cameras were all Pentax, from the very first model to the latest, used on 9-11; five of her photos now archived at The New York Historical Society and have been on tour to Arles and the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, D.C.

She now shoots with a digital, an I-phone, and has caved in to using Photoshop to enhance her digital work. Her Way of Seeing the World in a frame is not in color, but thru dodging and burning the image in her mind’s eye.

To this day she still sees the light and dark in a frame – from a Black and White perspective – the techniques she uses for Silhouette Snapshots, and for her photos as a Dog Feature Writer for online and hard copy publications.

Bev’s Black & White photographic skills found their way to her hand. A Black and White Charcoal & Pencil, entitled “Sibling Rivalry,” of two dogs in a rumble, premiered at a special 2020 exhibition – The Dog Days of Winter – at the Museum of The Dog (MOD) in NYC on 101 Park Avenue. The museum maintains and archives the world’s largest dog art collection.

Marsha Peruo began exploring photography in the early 1970s when she was given her first SLR camera that used color print and slide film. Since she was limited by the number of photos on the roll of film, and had no easy way to edit the paper photo or slide, she challenged herself to format the final composition through the lens. Marsha still composes her photos on the screen of her iPhone 12 Pro, only rarely using digital editing software.

Marsha has been photographing shadows for many years. For her, outdoor shadow photography is about capturing a single moment as the sun moves across the sky, creating changing compositions of light and dark spaces. She focuses on the relationship between colors and value differences, and with the balance of shapes and lines on the picture plane.

Marsha began formal art lessons at the age of eight when her father took her to the Brooklyn Museum’s art school on Saturday mornings. She continued to be an “art major” from public school to graduate school, receiving an MFA in printmaking from Pratt Institute. Her work has been shown in more than 100 exhibitions and is in many private collections throughout the country. She’s been a member of many artist organizations throughout the years.

In addition to photography, Marsha works two-dimensionally in acrylics, watercolors, colored pencils, oil pastels, ink, and a variety of printmaking techniques. She enjoys combining different media in one picture so that the process is more challenging and the result is a unique visual statement.

NOT JUST US—PART I

GALLERY35 IS HOSTING A SPECIAL SUMMER YOUTH JUSTICE EXHIBIT!

NOT JUST US

Seven young photographers share their works produced during a 10-week photography workshop called ALL 8. Using all eight Unitarian Universalist principles as their lens, concepts such as social and environmental justice, equity, compassion, liberty, identity and radical inclusion are transformed through the visual medium, challenging all of us to consider what it means to put our faith into action.

This exhibition celebrates 10 weeks of unfolding, and turns up the dial on the voices of the future.

NOT JUST US—PART II

OUR EXHIBIT FEATURES THE WORK OF STUDENTS AGES 14 TO 17 PRODUCED DURING A PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP CALLED ALL 8.
The program was designed by Jil Novenski, member of Gallery35 and Director of Religious Education for Children & Youth at The Community Church of New York. Peter J. Robinson, Jr., a past member of Gallery35, served as Guest Lead Instructor.


Grey, 14  (they/them) “Artistry is not just capturing what is around you. Every piece, every aspect also carries a part of your soul. I hope that people are able to sense and relate to that in my photographs. When it comes to my artwork, I want to be able to convey not simply an image, but a deeper meaning as well. I like to take ordinary aspects of life and make people question why they pass it by and why we are not paying more attention to what those things can teach us.


Thorin, 17  (he/him)  “Whenever I’m taking photos, I’m listening to music and entering a realm of creativity and peace. I like to raise awareness about injustices through my photography. I enjoy when people react to my work because it means that my work has made a powerful impact.”


Ciela, 14 (they/them) “Creativity helps me express myself and gives me a voice. I want my art to inspire others and show them that there is a way to make yourself be heard without even having to use words.”


Milan, 14  (she/her) “As a young photographer, I use photography as a way to express myself and share my view of the world. Because our own individual life expires, we all can see the same thing yet take away something different and I think photography is a perfect way to share that.I would say that my creative process is freeing, it’s nice to have a creative outlet, and the process of going out and taking photos, editing, brainstorming, and more, is relaxing.A lot of the time I take pictures just to take them, and then, later on, find a hidden meaning or message within them. However, shooting with a purpose and specific message in mind is extremely beneficial to me.”


Logan, 14 (he/him) “Hi, I’m Logan Creech. I find inspiration in shots that connect the viewer and me to nature, justice, and awareness about mental health. When I am in nature, I feel grounded, allowing me to be fully present with myself, quiet my mind, organize my thoughts, and reconnect to what is important in life.”


Sitota, 15 (she/her)

VIRGINIA ASMAN: a solo show in two parts

PART II—EXPLORATIONS: LINE & COLOR

“I began adding drawings as an element in my work four years ago by compositing them with my stylized photographs.
As I continuted to explore, the drawings began to stand more on their own, coupled with dramatic, often fanciful colors. Part II of my exhibit
shows a progression of work as Line & Color gradually emerged as the sole vehicle for expressing my experience of the Southwest.”
