Home Fine Art and FramingAll of a sudden my artwork is everywhere! Today is the artist reception for Home Fine Art and Framing Gallery at 2 Church Street, Mount Holly, NJ 08060 (609) 261-8634. I was invited by the irrepressible Ben Cohen and proprietor Kathryn Spear to be a guest artist. I have three photographic prints and a digital print of QR codes that links to websites, animated gif and videos.

Thanks to Pauline Jonas and Jeff Stroud my photography is included in the Photographic Society of Philadelphia group show at Galleria Deptford, 1011 Cooper Street, Deptford NJ. Read my review of the show on DoNArTNeWs here.

The Plastic Club small WORLDS 2014 show includes a basket of five one sheet books. Three of the books were originally included in the 110 Church Gallery RiTUAL Reading Room show. Read my review of the show here. I created two more books including a tribute to my beautiful Lady Doofus, the St. Bernard/Chihuahua who passed away almost two years ago, I was inspired to write the story because kids in my neighborhood still ask where Beethoven is which makes me very happy.small WORLDS 2014, The Plastic ClubPhoto by Morris Klein at small WORLDS 2014 at The Plastic Club

Galleria Deptford is located in the Deptford Municipal Building at 1011 Cooper Street, Deptford, NJ. The on-going art installations are curated by Pauline Jonas, an arts maven who connects artists with opportunities. The current photography exhibition is by members of Artists of Southern New Jersey. The mission of ASNJ is to:

  • Provide opportunities for local artists to display and share their artwork.
  • Membership is open to local artists and persons interested in supporting and participating in the visual arts.
  • Our partnershops with local libraries and other venues provides a home for local artists to exhibit their artwork.
  • ASNJ is a not for profit organization and does not collect fees or commissions.

Galleria Deptford doesn’t collect commissions either allowing artists to show their work in a heavily trafficked venue with all sales going directly through the artist. Several photographs in the current exhibit sold before the show even had the opening reception.

“As a lifelong educator and student of photography as art, my goal is to help others look at the ordinary and see the extra ordinary. To this end I have developed a series of courses at Gloucester County College. My goal is to help people tap their creative energy not the technical side of Digital Photography by seeing the world with an artist’s eye. To me Digital Photography is not so much about capturing an image or even creating an image. Digital Photography is a tool to help us recognize the abundance that surrounds us every day. A photograph is a byproduct of the glorious luminosity that is the banquet before us.” – Bob Reid artist statement

The Seneca White Deer are a rare herd of deer living within the confines of the former Seneca Army Depot in Seneca County, New York. When the 10,600-acre (43 km2) depot was created in 1941, a 24-mile (39 km) fence was erected around its perimeter, isolating a small herd of White-tailed deer, some of whom had white coats. – Wikipedia

Train Track to Oblivion reminds me so much of growing up in South Jersey. My buddies and I spent a lot of time walking the tracks and sitting by in the weeds while the trains rumbled by. Sometimes we would try putting pennies or nails on the rails to see if we could get them flattened. Even now when I hear the train whistle blow in South Philly I remember my childhood adventures of looking for spikes that had been shaken loose, our flattened pennies and balancing on the rails.

The exhibit at Galleria Deptford includes a couple of works that are not actual photographs such as Fresh Lobsters, a digital creation evoking natural elements but stretching the boundaries of the concepts of photography to the limit.
