Ahh by Anne Lawver

Ahh, Anne Lawver

Anne Lawver has provided us a new project. We have heard of Harlem Nights but what goes on in this famous location during the day? Anne has captured some worthy moments with her camera.

Over the last year I pursued a photography project which resulted in my having the privilege of photographing women seeking beautiful hair in a salon for women of color, Natural Sisters Salon in Harlem, NY, one of the most successful salons in Harlem. My desire is to capture private moments of hair styling, and to honor gifted stylists, artists who endeavor to make dreams of beauty come true.

Now though September 30.

Lenin’s Science Makes One’s Hand and Mind Stronger, Gregori Maiofis

For many, a photograph holds power because it is a snapshot from a moment in time – proof that something happened that we can see and believe. Therein lies the wonder and beauty that can be created through the work of graphic artists and clever print makers. Peter Fetterman  Gallery wants you take a closer look at the works of Gregori Maiofis.

We’d like to honor photographer Gregori Maiofis this week, taking the time to admire his handcrafted artworks. As a classically trained printmaker and graphic artist, printmaking is an integral part of his oeuvre that, following experimentation with gelatin silver prints and several alternative processes, led to his now prominent use of bromoil and bromoil transfer printing. Common among the Pictorialist masters of the early 20th Century, the bromoil process allows the artist unique aesthetic abilities to manually control the color, tone, and texture of the final picture on various surfaces.
In his series “Proverbs,” the artist uses proverb texts of various origins and visually interprets and conceptualizes them in staged compositions. Often working with trained animals including elephants, monkeys and predominantly a bear named Funt, Maiofis creates a new reality of interplay between human and animal.
The gallery is currently offering signed works from both “Proverbs” and “Taste for Russian Ballet” in printed from via the Nazraeli Press.
