Exhibition Duration: February 1st- March 14th 2017
Alfa Art Gallery will be hosting the seasonal New Brunswick Art Salon: Photography Exhibition featuring the Raritan Photographic Society (RPS).
The Raritan Photographic Society is New Jersey’s oldest photography club, founded in 1929. The society’s members are united in a common passion for photography and a desire to become better artists. They are also members of the New Jersey Federation of Camera Clubs and the Photographic Society of America. This allows the group to attend lectures, digital and print competitions to improve their technical and creative skills in photography. Both professional and amateur photographers choose to work in a wide spectrum of styles from photo-realism to abstraction as well as members who are still looking to find their own style.
Richard Doerr the President of RPS is an annual artist for the New Brunswick Art Salon. He has developed a speakers program that has featured various photographers instructing their knowledge. His commitment and passion for the arts has inspired others to become more involved in the community. Barbara Eggermann and Jamie Shombert both members of the RPS and artists partaking in the annual exhibition assist with Alfa Art Gallery to ensure the event is better than the last. Photography allows Eggermann to express her emotions and fully convey her point of view through a story only she can tell. On the other hand, Shombert’s photography is more vague which allows the viewer to create their own narrative using their imagination.
Join Alfa Art Gallery in the opportunity to celebrate the achievements and talent of the photographers. The wide varieties of genres include landscapes, nature, architecture, abstract objects, and figures. Each artist develops their own style and narrative through their pieces, providing the viewer to be just as creative. Alfa Art Gallery is a non-profit organization determined to support emerging and well established artists and to give their work exposure and critical following within the art community.
