Rhythm and Color in the Landscape

Featuring work by:
Steven Fey, Robert Glenn Ketchum, and Robert Weingarten

Back by poplular demand, this exhibition will reflect our planet's diverse environments, uniquely interpreted through three contemporary landscape artist's.

 

Steven Fey's landscape compositions reflect his passion for exploring remote areas in the American and Canadian West. His images reflect an interplay between light and form, both on a grand scale, and in the abstract. He meticulously prints his images in black and white and color, using Ilfochrome materials for the color work, producing remarkable detail and brilliant colors.

The combination of Robert Glenn Ketchum's powerful imagery and his personal activism have made the results of his many projects remarkably successful and placed Ketchum at the forefront of American artists expressing their concern for the environment. In its centennial edition, Audubon magazine recognized 100 champions of conservation "who shaped the environmental movement in the 20th century." Included with such luminaries as John Muir, Rachael Carson and David Brower, was photographer, Robert Glenn Ketchum. Ketchum was also previously listed by American Photo as one of the 100 most important people in photography. In the past two years he has been the recipient of the Robert O. Easton Award for Environmental Stewardship and the Josephine and Frank Duveneck Humanitarian Award. He has also been named the 2001 Outstanding Photographer of the Year by the North American Nature Photography Association and Outstanding Person of the Year 2000 by Photo Media magazine. These diverse acknowledgments reflect Ketchum's unique 30-year career dedicated not only to fine printmaking and book publishing, but also to the issues of natural resource management and habitat protection upon which he has focused within his work.

Robert Weingarten's
sumptuously colored and patterned landscapes of the Pacific Northwest display exquisite composition & tonal range . Weingarten is drawn to the way forms repeat in nature. His pictures engage in a dialogue with the history of painting while exploiting the camera's descriptive abilities. His dazzling matrix of golden fields, lush grasses and radiant skies make obvious references to Impressionism in content and form yet retain a uniquely photographic clarity. Robert's work is in the collection of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Monterey Museum of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Texas. In 2001 he was awarded the distinction Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society in Bath, England.
