Host Eleanor Bobrow welcomes Elaine Zelker, a former nurse, current photographer, and author of The Hand-Some Journey - Portraits of Elders Reflecting on Their Life's Journey to discuss the new book featuring stories introduced by a photograph of their hands holding something special that is a symbol of their life story.
Allentown Art Museum Director David Mickenberg joins hosts George Miller and Kate Scuffle for a wide-ranging conversation about the Museum's fall exhibits, Robert Indiana from A to Z, American Pop: The Prints, and Building the Arena: Photography by Theo Anderson.
Host Kenn Michael speaks with gallery director Santa Bannon about "Philadelphia Photographers: 1975-1985." Featuring works from 49 Greater Philadelphia area photographers, this current exhibit chronicles a dynamic ten-year period in Philadelphia's history when many nationally and internationally known photographers made creative and collaborative contributions to the medium and photography community as a whole. These photographers' works are recognized for their historical value and continue to be collected by major art museums and patrons worldwide.
Host Bill Dautremont-Smith welcomes photographer Lydia Panas. Her new exhibition, After Sargent, opens Wednesday, October 8th at Muhlenberg College. Panas has produced a seemingly simple yet complex and evocative body of large-format portraits inspired by iconic American portraitist John Singer Sargent (1856-1925), particularly his well known and beautifully ambiguous painting The Daughters of Edward Darley Boit, 1882.
