'Queens USA - A Global Celebration' 


Audrey Gottlieb, documentary photographer and member of NHSPA, is pleased to announce her upcoming exhibition "Queens USA - A Global Celebration". Her color photographs, made over a 25-year period, reflect the lives and celebrations of many new immigrant groups living and working in architecturally unglamorous neighborhoods dotted with shops, apartment buildings, temples and shrines. The images depict rituals and traditions, including ethnic feasts and processions that the newcomers carry over from the old country and blend into the new one.

'New Permanent Group Show Features Beautiful Large Prints of Work by Harry Licthman, Jerry Monkman, and David J. Murray'


155 Borthwick Ave

Portsmouth NH 03801

Contact David J. Murray www.ClearEyePhoto.com

The first floor public hallways of 155 Borthwick Ave in Portsmouth NH are now adorned with ~35 large art prints by area photographers Harry Licthman, Jerry Monkman, and David J. Murray. Building owner Michael Kane says his goal in displaying the work is to provide the many visitors who come to the medically-oriented building for dialysis, chemo infusions, and other medical treatments with a bit of beauty and distraction. The show was curated for Kane by Mary Jo Brown of Brown & Company in Portsmouth, NH, and a large information sign provides artist head shots, bios, and contact info.


NHIA members may find this installation interesting not only for the work itself, and for the evidence it provides that local companies are willing to devote significant dollars to purchasing and promoting the work of local artists, but also for the quality and medium of the prints themselves. Instead of having each photographer produce their own framed prints for hanging, The Kane Company licensed rights from each photographer to have all of the prints produced by a New York firm that specializes in large format high quality acrylic prints for corporate installations, and paid directly for all of the prints to be produced. The results are quite striking. Most of the pieces are at least 60" wide, and the largest is an 88" panorama. The acrylic treatment and large size combine to make these images really pop, while the uniform treatment lends a nice coherence to the show as a whole. You might enjoy checking them out, to see if this type of treatment would be of interest for your own work too.

'Georgie Friedman: Fragments of Antarctica'

Georgie Friedman (b. 1974) stages site-specific, immersive installations that evoke the beauty of the natural world and point to the uncertain future of a warming planet. Through explorations of man-made climate change, Friedman’s artwork addresses the effects of a global crisis on one of the most fragile landscapes on Earth.

Friedman received a 2017 Traveling Fellowship from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University, and voyaged to the Antarctic Peninsula to gain first-hand experience documenting the desolate beauty of the polar region. During her expedition, Friedman sketched the environment, recorded video footage, and photographed the Peninsula, which are all integral components of this exhibition.

“Georgie Friedman: Fragments of Antarctica” combines many experiential elements from Friedman’s travels. A two-channel video piece, featuring gigantic icebergs floating out to sea, pairs incongruous seascapes to create a sense of unsteady footing and a desire to level the horizon. Friedman’s photographic typology of singular icebergs—from the enormous and seemingly insurmountable to the rapidly fleeting—challenges our sense of scale. Her constructed panoramic views present a fragmented relationship with the natural world, moving from a large-scale perspective towards an increasingly intimate view of the volcanic mountains, glaciers, icebergs, and physical remains of the region. Across the gallery, kinetic sculptures that reference the shape of icebergs are suspended from above. The thin metal sculptures depict both the visible portions of the icebergs and also the 90 percent of each iceberg that is typically submerged under the surface of the water. Visitors encounter the sculptures from below, inverting our typical vantage point and creating a challenging new perspective of the icescape.

The exhibition presents fragments of a shrinking continent and raises questions about the need to document an ecology in peril. “Georgie Friedman: Fragments of Antarctica” invites visitors to reflect on their own relationship with the natural world—and consider an ice-bound landscape under threat by sweeping global changes.

Biography

Adam Woodworth is a landscape photographer, fine art printer, award winning filmmaker, and software engineer. He has had a love of photography for over 15 years, and since 2008 he has focused on landscape photography. As a member of the New Hampshire Art Association his photography is sometimes on display at the Robert Lincoln Levy Gallery in downtown Portsmouth, NH.

His goal as a photographer is to create compelling images using high quality tools and techniques. His attention to detail as a long time computer programmer is not lost in his photography and fine art printing.

He often strives to produce images that capture the beauty of nature, but he also uses special techniques to create images that often times look otherworldly.

Adam can frequently be found wandering around the White Mountains of New Hampshire, the seacoasts of Maine and New Hampshire, or other beautiful areas of New England.
