Three Amigos: John Rizzo, Fred Sway, and Neal Rantoul

Exhibition Run: Monday, April 7 – May 23, 2014
Opening Reception: Saturday, April 12, 2014, 3:30-5:30pm

After more than thirty years of diverse photographic careers, three old friends: John Rizzo, Fred Sway and Neal Rantoul come together to exhibit works that are diverse in interest but united in a common bond of their love for photographic vision. The work represents each photographers’ unique take on our world, rich in color and texture, rendered with consummate skill and mastery of the medium.

John Rizzo

John Rizzo’s images of balconies, doorways and apartments from his neighborhood in Alba, Italy are abstracts of color, texture and design. Fred Sway’s rendition of porches and yards in rural Massachusetts transforms the mundane and ordinary into exceptional still lifes of color and form. And finally, Neal Rantoul’s never-before-shown images of a cliff face in a fjord of northern Iceland convey a sense of diminished human scale in the face of powerful and aw inspiring natural force.

Neal Rantoul is a career artist and educator. Recently retired from 30 years as head of the Photo Program at Northeastern University in Boston; he is devoting his efforts full time to making new pictures and bringing earlier work to a national and international audience. With over 50 one-person exhibitions over the length of his career, Rantoul has exhibited new works within the last year at both Panopticon Gallery and The Danforth Museum.

John Rizzo started his career in Boston, Massachusetts where he studied and taught photography. His early work as a documentary photographer earned him a Massachusetts Council for the Arts and Humanities Photography Fellowship and a National Endowment for the Arts Project Grant. Eventually John found his way to Portland, Oregon where he opened a studio and enjoyed a successful career as an Advertising and Editorial Photographer. John founded Ars Nova Gallery and was a cofounder and the artistic director of Obscura Gallery, two critically acclaimed galleries in the burgeoning Portland, Oregon art scene.

PAUL-JUDE GUILLAUME

Exhibition Runs: November 12 – December 14, 2012
Reception: November 14, 2012   6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

Working with found and appropriate images, MFA candidate Paul-Jude Guillaume is working through ideas of memory and loss as he navigates a world slipping out of reach. The large format color images reference painting, bringing the hand of the artist into the images, evoking melancholic and romantic ideas of past, painted over a experience we cannot ever truly know yet somehow feels familiar.

 Join us next week and meet the artist at the Opening Reception on Wednesday, Nov 14 from 6pm – 8pm

Alumni Profile: David Butler

David Butler graduated from the NESOP Professional Photography Program in 2008 and has spent the last 3 years based in Phoenix, AZ working as the Brand Photographer for skin care company philosophy.

In this role, David is responsible for all of their advertising images ranging from in-store display ads seen in Macy’s, Nordstrom and Sephora, to Magazine ads seen in Vogue, InStyle, People and Harper’s Bazaar, as well as any digital advertising.

“Attending NESOP was one of those critical life changing decisions for me, I am sure I am not the only graduate that feels this way.  I have been working night and day to make my dream come true since the second I enrolled at NESOP, and I have never really stopped working (luckily). There are many truly powerful forms of art, and I believe photography is up there with the most efficient mediums that communicate a message, story, emotion, and even sound and smell sometimes.   I am amazed and inspired everyday by the possibilities and potential one person and one camera contain.”
