Ann Rosen’s Photo Exhibit “In the Presence of the Family” Comes to Fairleigh Dickinson
Teaneck, NJ (December 15, 2006) —“In the Presence of the Family,” Ann Rosen’s photo exhibit of family portraits, depicts the much-needed support and encouragement that the family provides to an artist. The exhibit will open at the University College Art Gallery January 15 and run through February 9.
“In the Presence of the Family” has been an ongoing project for Rosen since 1992. It has evolved from hand-painted color photographs to manipulated black and white images to color digital images. The collection chronicles family diversity and explores their blend of cultures and customs.
“Artists spend many hours creating new works in their studios,” said Rosen. “Although this is often accomplished in solitary, behind the scenes is a husband or other family member whose support is crucial to this artistic process. Art is not only an erudite idea, removed from the community, but it involves that community as portrayed through artists’ experiences and concepts. Family portraits of artists are a vehicle to connect this creative work to the outside world. They depict the connection between inner and outer selves, and educate those that are not connected with an art world through exhibitions or publications.”
The University College Art Gallery is located in University Hall on the Metropolitan Campus of Fairleigh Dickinson University in Teaneck, NJ. Gallery hours are Monday-Friday 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. The exhibit is free and open to the public. For more information call 201-692-2801.
