David Fokos


David Fokos is an internationally renowned photographic artist who has been photographing the landscape for over 40 years. His elegant black and white images have been lauded as masterpieces of minimalism. His work has been the subject of over 60 solo shows, and can be found in a dozen galleries on three continents, as well as in scores of museums, and prominent corporate and private collections.  Fokos writes. The images I make today are the result of over 30 years of exploration and discovery in my quest to understand how we are affected by the world around us and how we perceive our environment.  It is my desire to express to the viewer the essence of my experience in these places – to evoke within them the same emotion I felt at the time of the exposure. Rather than show what these places look like, I want to show how they feel....Through the use of long exposures I have been able to encode the element of time into what would otherwise be a static image.  This process has the effect of stripping away the visual noise” to reveal a world that, while very real, is not experienced visually.  We feel it.  We sense it.  But in general, we dont see it. With my camera, I am able to translate this hidden world into a visible form for us to contemplate.”


Sherry Kerlin


Sherry Kerlin has had her paintings and drawings exhibited in prominent galleries throughout the United States.  Her work is built around the many facets of the human condition. She examines both the physical and the metaphysical world. Her work includes narratives from the past and the present day, which can be playful and humorous or dark and mysterious. You feel as if you are viewing the images through a mist of memory. Sherry Kerlin is from Oklahoma, and now lives and works in New York City. She attended the Chicago Art Institute and completed her BFA at the Kansas City Art Institute in Kansas City in 1966. Kerlin has been exhibiting her work since 1981 in New York and throughout the United States. She received a grant in 1995 from the New York Foundation for the Arts, and in 1992 she received a residency at the MacDowell Colony in Peterborough, New Hampshire.
