At the Haas Gallery at Bloomsburg University, the latest exhibition is featuring BW Gallerist’s friend, Mary Anne Mitchell. The exhibit, titled “Meet Me in My Dreams,” is based on a poem of the same name by the photographer, while the photographs are shot with wet plate collodion.

About the Photographer:

Mary Anne Mitchell is a fine art photographer working primarily with analog processes. Her most recent series Meet me In my Dreams is shot using wet plate collodion. The images depict situations, often mysterious, which evoke her southern roots. She recently was a finalist in the 8th Edition of the Julia Margaret Cameron Awards and has been invited to exhibit some of this series in the 4th Biennial of Photography to be held in Berlin. Her work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions across the country and can be found in private and corporate collections across the US, Dubai, Taiwan, and Canada.

White Coat, South of France, by Brian Duffy

Peter Fetterman Gallery is excited to announce their latest acquisitions, featuring the work of a man known best to his admires as simply, “Duffy.”

Duffy, known to friends and colleagues by his surname alone, is widely credited for having revolutionized the face of fashion photography, defining the visual language of the swinging sixties in London. Duffy completed his training at Central Saint Martins before undertaking an apprenticeship at Balenciaga. In 1957 he began work at British Vogue only leaving in 1963 to work from his studio. Among the many famous faces who sat for Duffy were Jean Shrimpton, Nina Simone, Brigitte Bardot, John Lennon, Michael Caine and Sammy Davis Jr.

“I don’t give a f**k what anybody thinks about me…. I never wanted to be famous. Why? For what? So the doorman at Harrods can recognise me? What I care about is what my kids think about me, and what my grandchildren think of me–the fact that they think I’m a genius is delicious.”

Now officially open, join Camerawork in celebrating the natural beauty that can be found in the United States, as captured through the lens of the talented Joseph Bowser.

America’s national parks are a treasure beyond compare. Joseph Bowser will present a small sampling of the magnificent beauty of America’s parks. From the coastal beauty of Acadia in to the hot springs in Yellowstone, the grandeur of Yosemite Valley, and the majestic Sequoias and Redwoods, our parks are truly awe-inspiring.  As Wallace Stegner said in 1983, “National parks are the best idea we ever had. Absolutely American, absolutely democratic, they reflect us at our best rather than our worst.”

Joseph Bowser was born and raised in scenic northeastern Pennsylvania surrounded with rolling hills steeped in history which sparked his imagination, his inspiration for capturing life’s moments, the beautiful landscapes, wildlife and architecture of an area with so much to offer a photographer. From the home front to his travels in the U.S. and Europe, he pursues a passion for capturing what he sees with his camera. Sharing his photos with others and watching their enthusiasm is his joy. Joe’s photos have been featured at the Waverly Small Works Gallery, Everhart Museum in Scranton, Scranton First Friday events, Hazleton First Friday at the Merkel & the Spring Thaw Ice & Wine Festival at Sculpted Ice Works. His photos placed first in both the Beauty of Nature and Enjoying Nature categories in a Great Outdoors photo contest held by Lackawanna County Conservation District. He hopes you enjoy his photos. What better joy can one have than to view an image … and imagine?

The show opened on April 6th, with a reception from 6-8pm, and can be viewed until April 28th, 2018.
