    artifice and dramatic nature of set design the human presence in these images are inferred by the dramatic lighting and artificial structure of the stage This concentration on artificiality combined with the continual absence of the figure reflects Lorenzini s interest in social interaction on a much broader level The artist states I consider a stage or set less an isolated singular physical space where plays and shows are performed and photographs taken and more a metaphorical representation of the abstract stage on which any social interaction may occur The relationship between visual artificial environments and the more abstract artificiality that exists in social life is what interests me and motivates my work Lorenzini received a B F A from the University of Pennsylvania in 2002 and has studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and the University of Georgia Study Abroad Program in Cortona Italy As a member of the artist collective Vox Populi Lorenzini has had three solo exhibitions in 2003 2004 and 2005 as well as three group exhibitions from 2002 to 2004 Selected group exhibitions include Significant Bodies The Irene Carlson Gallery of Photography University of LaVerne LaVerne CA 2006 80 th Annual International

    to Exhibitions September 21 2006 to December 31 2006 Narrative Symmetry Photographs by Christine McMonagle Originally taken as Polaroids Christine McMonagle considers her series Narrative Symmetry as a study of personal relationships told through time As a series of diptychs representing two moments or instances during the photographic process they are images that hint at a deeper narrative one that reveals less of the instance reflected in the image but more of the rapport between artist and subject The instantaneous nature of the Polaroid process allows McMonagle to represent this connection in a method that could be described as impulsive and unfiltered As the artist states More like an open ended narrative than a clear description the images are a little out of focus and indefinite As much a study of myself as the subject they are my memories and my stories McMonagle received a B F A from Tyler School of Art Temple University Philadelphia and has studied at the University of Applied Sciences Bielefeld Germany and the Campus of Temple University in Rome Italy Exhibitions include Viewpoint InLiquid at the Painted Bride Art Center Philadelphia 2005 North of the Border Art in Northern Liberties 3 Philadelphia 2004 Photoimage

    Philly When it began in 1999 as a 10 day invitational show at the Sedgwick Cultural Center in Mt Airy AQatS recognized that it had the heady task of explaining the very words art quilt and showing quilts on the wall to many visitors who knew only the functional bed quilt To the organizers surprise the success of this brief exhibition surpassed all expectations In fact AQatS attracted so much attention from both the public and the press that it expanded annually and became a month long juried exhibition in its third year Fulfilling its mission to provide a consistent venue for the exhibition of the art quilt and the education of the public about this important and ever evolving art form each year the AQatS committee has also produced a CD ROM catalogue of each featured quilt as well as comments by each artist and each juror It is a testament to the widespread fame of AQatS that is receives hundreds of submissions from artists from every region of the country and from abroad as well For AQATS 2006 44 quilts were selected by three illustrious jurors Rebecca Stevens author and curator of Contemporary Textiles at the Textile Museum in Washington D C and fiber artist teachers Lewis Knauss of Moore College of Art and Design and Amy Orr of Rosemont College They have assembled a show that illustrates the depth and varieties of the contemporary art quilt photo transfers paper and whole cloth quilts embroidery and painting on cloth are but a few of the techniques that the visitor will see in 2006 Artists selected Virginia Abrams Bob Adams Valerie Aita Lisa Call Violet Cavazos Jette Clover Tricia Coulson Bonnie Epstein Denise M Furnish C J Pressma Leesa Zarinelli Gawlick Valerie S Goodwin Beverly Hertler Kristin Hoelscher Schacker

    Saylor s old school parking lot her boyfriend s home in New Jersey a vacation house at the beach and even herown apartment are all the focus of her of photographs yet resulting images are often less than recognizable Each abstracted image is a result of Saylor s unique photographic technique in which the lens is disengaged from the body of the camera and turned backwards Saylor adjusts the color and light with the lens to create the atmospheric affects that are evidenced in the final print This process of detaching the lens is also symbolic for the artist As Saylor states shooting backwards proves to work to my advantage Not only am I able to gently detach emotionally but I also come to view my subject matter in a way never obvious to me before The plain familiar places hold fascinating enchantment that can only be unlocked by breaking a few rules taking some chances and having fun in the process Saylor received a BA in photography from the University of the Arts Philadelphia and recently had her first solo exhibition through the InLiquid Exhibition Series in Philadelphia Other recent exhibitions include FreeForm Media Bureau Networks Philadelphia Abstractions Main
