UPCOMING EXHIBITIONS 2019
STEVE FREEMAN: PHOTOGRAPHY
In this solo exhibition, photographer Steve Freeman presents compelling images from his wide-ranging travels around the globe. Driven by his curiosity about the world, Freeman’s career has led him to explore cultures different from his own and to photograph unique and extraordinary experiences to share with his viewers. By capturing portraits, landscapes, wildlife and events he has witnessed in his travels, he highlights the beauty of daily life and provides a glimpse into the lives of people and communities from around the globe.
Freeman lived, worked, and traveled throughout rural Indonesia for one year, and Tanzania for seven months. It was during this time that he worked as a photojournalist for a UK-based sustainable development non-governmental organization (NGO.) The NGO is committed to addressing the development of foreign countries and policy issues by working in partnership with its’ people to build sustainable, healthy and productive communities.
This series illustrates Freeman’s incredible journey, showing a glimpse of the happy, hard working lives of Tanzanians and Indonesians through portraits, landscapes, and family moments.

Knight’s recent paintings have evolved from Geometric Abstraction to what he refers to as Symbolic Visual Expression. The word “symbol” is defined as, “something that suggests or represents something else. Symbols often take the form of words, visual images or gestures that are used to convey ideas and beliefs.”
It is the choice of the viewer to establish or interpret the content of the composition as an intuitive impression or association, reflecting on the visual symbols in play. Nothing more, nothing less.
Jack has received numerous awards for his artwork and is represented in several corporate, museum and private collections including the Bank of Boston, Pennsylvania Bank & Trust, Milton Bradley Company, Ernst & Young, Occidental Chemical, Springfield Newspapers, Burchfield Penney Art Center, Schenectady Museum and the Southern Vermont Art Center.
He has also been an adjunct art instructor with Empire State College and Niagara County Community College in New York as well as at Rutgers-Camden Campus, Burlington, Camden and Gloucester County Colleges in South Jersey. In 2003, Jack was a visiting artist at the National Academy of Design, New York City. His work has been reviewed or featured in several publications including the Boston Globe, Philadelphia Inquirer, Buffalo News, Buffalo Courier-Express, Albany Times Union, Springfield Daily News, Springfield Republican, The Cape Gazette, Photonics Spectra Magazine, Delmarva School of Art, and Canadian Artists in Exhibition.
Jack had a dual career both in the arts as well as the railroad industry. He worked 20 years with Conrail’s Engineering Department and 12 years with Amtrak. In 2009, he retired as a Senior Contract Agent in the Procurement Department at Amtrak’s 30th Street Station in Philadelphia.
In 2010, he relocated to Delaware with his wife Darlene, where his studio and residence are located in Long Neck, DE. His son Christopher lives in New Jersey.
“Through painting I explore the use of color, form and shape to create visual images in multiple variations or series.” - Jack Knight

Toshiko Takaezu (1922-2011), a Japanese-American ceramic artist known for her closed vessels, became internationally influential by presenting her pots as sculpture. She is celebrated as a formidable modernist whose style is epitomized by unrestrained brush strokes and splashes of glaze over her signature ceramic forms. Takaezu taught for 25 years at Princeton University and, for 35 years, she was an annual visiting artist at Skidmore College where she made her largest works. From her students, she shaped a generation of artists and selected the majority of her apprentices.
The impact of Toshiko Takaezu on the field of ceramics and contemporary art is well documented, yet her role as mentor, equally important to her, is too often overlooked. From the mid-1970s until the last year of her life, Takaezu chose one apprentice each year to live and work at her home and studio in Quakertown, New Jersey.
An integral part of that apprenticeship was the biannual open-house where Takaezu presented the work of her current apprentice throughout her studio and grounds. Since her passing, and to honor Takaezu’s mentor/apprentice tradition, the open-house exhibitions have continued.
Featuring work by twenty of her former apprentices and committed disciples, Collective Identity celebrates Takaezu’s dedication to mentorship and helps communicate her excellence as a maker and educator. The breadth of her influence can be seen in the variety of personal visions of her students' work in the exhibition.
