The Noyes Museum of Art of Stockton University presents RAW 2018, the fifth annual juried photography competition in which the top images have been selected for an exhibition at The Noyes Arts Garage of Stockton University in Atlantic City. The theme for this exhibition is "Light & Shadow: Form, Metaphor, and Culture.” Photographers may consider this theme in several ways: as the formal use of light in photography, as a metaphor (personal, spiritual, psychological, etc.), or as a representation of cultural concerns (social and political).
JUROR: Michael Chovan-Dalton is a photographer and a professor and coordinator of Photography and Digital Imaging at Mercer County Community College in New Jersey, the JKC Photo Gallery director, and he is the creator of the podcast thePhotoShow.org. His podcast features artists with discussions about origins, influences, teaching, books, showing, tools, technology, and anything else that may come up in conversation. He was awarded a BFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York and an MFA from Columbia University.

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.

Featuring artist Brooke Lanier, this series captures the serene beauty of water. The appearance of water changes according to your vantage point. When you are looking down at it, you see the bottom, but further out, the more the water reflects its surroundings. The water quality itself, the color of the water, the turbulence, and everything all at the same time, it all comes together into a pattern. Wherever you go in the world, water behaves in a reliable manner in terms of its patterns of movement and reflection. Her paintings share that it is restorative to go to a peaceful place and contemplate the beautiful subtlety of colors, patterns of light in water, plants and sky. As an artist, Lanier strives to create work that will encourage contemplation and greater awareness of mundane beauty.
