Narrative Strain: On view through April 23, 2014

Café Gallery: Photography Students of Hank Gans

The Art School at Old Church in Demarest, NJ is pleased to present an exhibition of student work in the Café Gallery, on view through March 24th, 2014.  Photography: Students of Hank Gans is a group exhibition of digital photographs by members of the Art School community.  Participating students range in experience from one semester of study to six semesters studying with Hank Gans since June 2010.  Gans is a commercial and fine art photographer whose work is in the collections of the Musée de l’Elysée in Switzerland and the Center for Fine Art Photography in the US.  A recipient of many national and international awards, he received honors from 2011 Epson International Photographic Pano Awards.

Students study with Gans to develop their skills as fine art photographers.  Their hard work and progress is evident in their photos of a variety of subjects and print sizes, all professionally displayed. The work in the show ranges from nature and landscapes to portraiture and architecture. The bold colors and dramatic black and white imagery in each piece create unique experiences for the viewer.  This fresh look at the work of local up-and-coming artists is part of the mission of the Café Gallery, the Art School’s community exhibition space.
