The Asian Series: Photographs by Phyllis Crowley

High in the mountains of rural China the clouds descend, envelop the land and a photograph is made. The Asian Series quietly unfolds artist Phyllis Crowley‘s long-standing interest in interfaces that insert themselves between the subject and the viewer, obscuring and distorting, hiding and revealing. These dusky dirges denote an intimate connection to the landscape in moments of transformation. The photographs insinuate smudged outlines of memories, hinting as the familiar while remaining at times obscure. The glowing line movements in each frame liken themselves to jazz notes hanging heavy in the air, gorgeous streaks of light that enliven the soul.

Phyllis Crowley grew up in New York city, learning the love and craft of photography from her father. She references Minor White, Harry Callahan and Aaron Siskind as serious influences on her work. She graduated from Vassar College, lives in New Haven CT, and has taught photography at Norwalk Community College, University of Bridgeport and the Creative Arts Workshop in New Haven.

Over the last 25 years, while making a living as a commercial freelance photographer, Phyllis’ art work has been widely exhibited in various galleries in New York City and extensively throughout New England as both solo and group artist.

Jerry Reed: Paper Work

Jerry Reed: Paper Work

Exhibition runs: January 7, 2013 – February 22, 2013
Opening Reception: Wednesday, January 16 from 6:00pm-8:00pm

Nationally exhibited artist Jerry Reed presents selected works of minimal black and white photography positing questions on the relationship between performance and the document.

Using simple tools of paper and studio lighting, Reed composes meditative visual haiku, elevating a simple line quality reminiscent of abstract expression masters. The elegance of his work derives from its frank relationship to nature, structure and design itself.

Meet the artist at the Opening Reception on Wednesday, January 16 from 6pm – 8pm!

The Garner Center is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, and on Saturdays from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.  The gallery is located at 537 Commonwealth Avenue in Boston on the second floor of the New England School of Photography.
