Area Artists 2007
February 28, 2007 - June 8, 2007
Area Artists is a biennial exhibition presenting the work of established artists and art educators of the eastern Pennsylvania region.
Joseph Chapuk is an artist/educator whose multimedia works have been widely exhibited regionally in Philadelphia and New York, and at galleries in California. He holds an MFA in Studio Arts from California State University, Los Angeles and currently teaches at Northampton Community College in Bethlehem. The exhibition traces the development of his work over a fifteen year period.
Cheryl Agulnick Hochberg is a professor at Kutztown University, PA. Her paintings have been exhibited at museums and galleries throughout the U.S., and are in the permanent collections of the Tyler School of Art, Philadelphia (BFA), the University of Wisconsin-Madison (MFA); University of North Dakota, Minot, and the Westinghouse Corporation, among others. Hochberg’s paintings are realist in nature, rich in detail, color, pattern, and information.
Jeffrey W. Ludwig, artist/educator, is a museum professional at Lehigh University and holds degrees in Fine Arts and Art Education from Penn State University. His paintings and works on paper have been exhibited throughout the state, most recently as part of Some Serious Business: Art of the Valley at Northampton Community College. His image-making process involves obsessive layering of geometric elements and chance operations, resulting in ideas of simultaneity and contradiction.
Ed Nowak, photographer, teacher, and consultant curator, is presently the Director of Archetype Gallery in Allentown, PA. He holds a BA in psychology with minors in photography/art from the University of Connecticut and has consulted and exhibited his photographs at regional and Northeastern galleries and colleges, most recently genesis, genus & genius loci at the Baum School of Art in 2006. His recent images are an outgrowth of Polaroid SX-70 work exploring visual syntax. Nowak notes that visual literacy is the underlying theme of the exhibit.
