Mine, yours, ours, a family’s, or a town’s… reveal the dirty, traumatic, painful, or pleasant unadmitted memories that mean something only to you. Long-buried or recently discovered places, furtive pleasures, lies or beautiful treasures, like little vows, kept hidden until the time is ripe for forgotten faces and lost worlds to emerge from a fog. No one has to know, but all want to see. Share your secrets with us.   Works of every medium will be included in this exhibition judged by James Patrick Reid Fine Arts faculty at FIT in New York City, the Art Sudents League, and the New York Academy of Art; it is a multi-faceted event including painting, fiber, sculpture, video, mixed media and design.

Katherine Fraiser

August 30 - October 26, 2014

Opening Reception: Friday, Sept 12, 2014, 5:30-7:30 p.m.

Winner of GoggleWorks 2013 Juried Show HOME, Katherine Fraiser is a Philadelphia area artist specializing in large-scale oil paintings. She says of her work, “Life often strikes me as a string of moments, like a series of film stills, in which we observe ourselves. I paint people experiencing these moments of profound self-awareness and growth, when the rest of the world drops away and we are left bare.” Her paintings have the visceral quality of memories or dreams, where the imagery is reduced to the essential. Fraiser holds a Certificate from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and is a Magna Cum Laude BFA graduate of the University of Pennsylvania.

Lucy Gans, The Artist in Spite of Herself

August 30 - October 26, 2014

Opening Reception, Friday, September 12, 2014, 5:30-7:30 p.m.

The relationship between image and text is one that occupies Lucy Gans’ work. She uses her own face and body as a stand-in for all women, so they are not really “self” portraits.  The subject of her work for the past seven years has been violence and injustices committed against women and girls. “I use drawing and printmaking as a way to negotiate my way through some of the irreconcilable differences I encounter in human behavior.”

Gans teaches at Lehigh University where she is also an affiliated faculty member in the women’s studies program. She earned her MFA from Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, NY and her BFA from Lake Erie College, Painesville, OH. She studied at the Art Students League, NY, NY
