Opening Reception for Viewfinders - Photographers Frame Nature
February 9, 2023
Heckscher Museum of Art, 2 Prime Avenue, Huntington, NY 11743
Please join us to celebrate the opening of Viewfinders, a photography exhibition curated by St. Joseph’s faculty member Dr. Susan Van Scoy. Alumni, faculty, staff and students are welcome to see this exciting new exhibit and hear from Associate Professor Van Scoy on the inspiration and meaning of the works selected.
Viewfinders: Photographers Frame Nature considers artists’ rich and varied responses to the symbiotic relationship between nature and humans. The photographs on view explore the varying degrees to which nature has fueled human experience and imagination and contributed to environmental consciousness. They also offer a closer look at how human activity has shaped nature. Spanning the late nineteenth century to the present, the exhibition features black and white and color photographs, digital photographs, photomontages, and videos. The images depict places as far away as outer space, and as near as The Heckscher Museum’s own backyard. Curated by Susan Van Scoy, Ph.D. Professor of Art History at St. Joseph’s University, Long Island.
