Crown of Bones by Juliet Harrison

Crown of Bones

Here at BW Gallerist, we’re always happy when we can share great news regarding goods friends who are even better photographers. In this case, our friend Juliet Harrison has been nominated in the Professional Still Life category of the 2017 B & W Spider Awards.

I am very pleased to announce that these two images have received Nominations in the Professional Still Life category of the 2017 Black & White Spider Awards. This well respected International competition has entrants and juror from all parts of the world and industry. “Crown of Bones” was also awarded an Honorable Mention. I am so proud of this body of work and the recognition that it is getting. As studio shot cell phone images, they are such a complete departure from my equine work. It reminds me that as an artist, we always have to let ourselves take risks. To let the work evolve where it needs to go. I have been sensing that after nearly a year of producing these Still / Life images, there is a shift again in my future. One direction will be to let some of these Still /Life ideas become actual sculpture. And another may be to take my film cameras out again in to the world and see what comes from that.

Congratulations Juliet! For those who enjoy her work, head over to her website to learn more.

This year, our friend Juliet Harrison was one of a handful of nominees to be recognized for the 10th annual Black & White Spider Awards. She was recognized in the Abstract category for her photo, Bath 2. The Spider awards receives thousands of international submissions and is one of the most watched award ceremonies for black & white photography.

Harrison has long been a photographer of the equine and unsurprisingly her muse for her photograph was just that. What’s refreshing is just how effective Harrison was in obscuring the nature of the horse at first glance, forcing the eyes to explore and thus consider the abstraction.

In addition to the well deserved nominee, the upstate New Yorker has published the first part of her article/memoir, On The Trial to My First Horse, in Catskill Horse Magazine. Part two will follow in January.

2015 is upon us and our friend Juliet R. Harrison is showing no signs of slowing down. She has recently released another folio of photos, titled The Horses of San Marco. Limited to only 15 copies, the folio is comprised of eight signed 81/2″x11″ prints on archival cotton rag paper. Harrison’s work has long been entwined with the  equestrian world , and these follow suit. The Horses of San Marco are a quartet of bronze horses pulling a carriage in front of the San Marco Basilica in Venice Italy.

In addition to working on my own imagery and running the Equis Art Gallery (which is heading into its second year) I will be teaching a class in the Lifetime Learning Institute of Bard Collage. The class is called Horses of the Hudson Valley and is designed to introduce students to some of the wonderful equine oriented businesses and locations that operate in the mid-Hudson Valley. I am really looking forward to sharing some of the places I have been fortunate enough to find and explore so close to home.

I am energized to begin this new year and would love to hear from everyone if you have plans to visit. I would be thrilled to show you around the gallery and visit with my friends and fans.

These will only be available for special order while supplies last. Each folio is offered at a price of $220.00.

Rather than  gamble away their paycheck at the track, some people enjoy the healthier endeavor of capturing the horses behind their camera lens. BWGallerist friend and fellow photographer Juliet R. Harrison has done exactly this, compiling her works into the photography book, Track Life: Images and Words. 35 of these – and other equine photography – by Harrison will be exhibited at Merritt Bookstore Gallery.

There have been times without cameras and times without horses, but those times are long forgotten in the life of photographer Juliet R Harrison. Born on Long Island in the late 1950’s of urban intellectuals who took time to travel and explore the arts. Discovered the love of horses at age 5 when given the gift of a tiny book of black and white horse photographs. A harbinger of things to come. The obsession continued until the age of 15 when it was put aside for other things. A camera was always nearby but only to document places visited and people loved. Ms. Harrison obtained a BA in psychology in 1980. During the years from 1980 through 1988 the camera became more than a tool for documentation. A beginning darkroom course was taken and a love reborn. The camera became a tool for making art. Eventually living in New York City, architecture was the primary subject matter for Ms Harrison. Jobs as an administrator in custom color photo labs helped her learn about the print. A job as an assistant to a Fine Art reproduction photographer taught her about the camera and lighting. From 1988-1991 the photographer honed her skills in the MFA studio program at Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan. In 1991 she graduated with a MFA in Photography. The year 1999 began the return to horses finding her true subject matter in the Equine form. Ms Harrison has exhibited work in juried shows, invitationals, and museums throughout the United States. Her work is in private collections throughout the world.

Not Quite a Retrospective will open on May 1st and run until June 29th. The Artist’s Reception will be Saturday, May 10th, at 11:30 am.

Juliet Harrison, “All That Glitters”

Equine photography is a long honored tradition in fine art image making. Juliet Harrison takes this platform as a starting point for exploration and drills down with a razor focus on the form and beauty of these elegant beasts. With an approach not unlike that of human figure studies, she creates an impactful vision of where these creatures “fit” in the universe.

To me the horse is a piece of art. It is the structure of muscle and bone beneath the skin. It is the texture and warmth of the coat. It is the pattern of that coat. The images are what the horse person sees and works with. Not the whole, but the piece. The piece you are grooming. The part under your hand. The movement of one muscle group that will tell you if the whole is working right when you are training. This is what I am trying to tell my viewers about. Through the structure of modernist fine art photography, I am trying to talk about the horse, the icon of myth and history in its most elemental relationship to us, the viewer.

Now through July 26.

Opening reception Friday, June 10.
