Lafayette Students and Professors Participate in InVision

Lafayette College photography professors Karina Skvirsky and Greta Brubaker will be showing work together in an upcoming photography exhibition at Moravian College entitled “Spectrum”. The exhibition is part of the InVision: Month of Photography in the Lehigh Valley sponsored by ArtsQuest. Moravian is hosting a panel discussion to go along with the exhibition that will discuss current trends in photography and academia that Prof. Skvirsky will be a part of.

“Spectrum” is an eclectic photo-based exhibition featuring the work of photography professors from the Lehigh Valley. From historic techniques and traditional black and white photography to digital processes, this exhibition and panel discussion explores the range of work being produced and taught today in the area of photography. Artists include Greta Brubaker, Anne Chupa, Joe Elliott, Jeff Hurwitz, Kristine Kotsch, Lydia Panas, Karina Skvirsky and Krista Steinke. The show’s Curator is Krista Steinke, Art Department Chair at Moravian, and the Exhibition Coordinator is Kristine Kotsch, Adjunct Professor at Moravian. The exhibition will be open to the public from November 1, 2011 to November 20, 2011 in the H.Paty Eiffe Art Gallery in the Haupert Union Building at Moravian College, Bethlehem, PA.

Award-winning photographer and Artist-in-Residence Mark Cohen judged the submissions and selected the work of Imogen Cain (2012) and Jack Fedak IV (2013) to be part of the exhibit. Imogen Cain’s photo is one taken this fall in a Laundromat in Easton, PA for a Lafayette Digital Photography II class assignment on light. Jack Fedak IV’s photo is one of many he took this summer when he spent 6 weeks in a fishing town on the Island of Fogo off of the coast of Eastern Canada’s Newfoundland as an Artist-in-Residence. This was a program offered to Lafayette students of all majors as an opportunity to escape from the typical landscapes that surround Lafayette. Mark and Johanna Chehi, parents of a current Lafayette student funded the program.
