The Madelon Powers Art Gallery located on the Campus of The East Stroudsburg University (ESU) of PA in its The Fine and Performing Arts Center held an Artists’ Reception on Friday July 9th featuring the work of photographers living throughout the area. Many of The Pocono Photo Club membership who participated in the Exhibition titled, “Photographer‘s Choice” and presented a wide variety of styles and techniques ranging from simple yet beautiful photographic representations of their subjects to abstract depictions which challenged the imagination of all who viewed them.
Those photographers participating in the show included Bob Ace, Narlene Jacobs, Linda Stevenson, Joseph Sailus, Eric Goins, Bud Nealy, John Mangiaracina, Linda Mann, Maureen Cunningham, Thomas Meryweather, Minming Bowerson, John Kopp, Greg Melbert, George Debronsky, Toni Nealy, and Marlana Holsten. Several of the photographers were showcased in the Premiere Issue of The Forwardian Arts Society Literary and Arts Magazine titled, “Forwardian.” They were Barbara Courouble whose work can be found on the magazine’s front cover, Leslie Nagy whose work can be found on the magazine’s back cover, Terry Flat whose work can be found on page 11 in the magazine, and Beth Hewitt whose work can be found on Page 10 of the magazine.
The array of images these creative individuals presented were a joy to partake in as they inspired a wonderful opportunity for each attendee to linger at every photograph therefore creating an unique relationship between the creator and recipient of the work created. The Exhibition will continue until July 31st. You’ll find more photographs taken during the reception in The Forwardian Arts Society Visual Arts 2010 Gallery at www.myspace.com/forwardian_arts.
