Pearn's photography at Chant

    LORDS VALLEY - Art lovers, mark your calendars for the opening of another photo exhibition by Shohola resident Amelia Pearn. This is an eclectic collection. The bulk of the show will be small, custom printed black and white silverworks. A variety of hand toning and painting is often incorporated either before the image is shot or after it is printed, creating completely unique prints. “With the exception of Photojournalism, technology has left photography lifeless,” Pearn said. “With digital cameras, the art in photography is being lost. My works are dark. They are edgy; they are technically incorrect. They expand from my mind and go outside the obedient lines. They suffer from an overuse of chemicals and a complete lack of caution.” Pearn has been published widely and exhibits in the tri-state area. Her most recent show took place in September of 2005 in Newton, N.J., and she is working on a show for October of 2007 in Milford. Pearn studies with leading photographers and printing artists at Peters Valley Craft Center and in New York City. The exhibit is at the Davis R. Chant Realtors’ Hemlock Farms Office, 631 Route 739, Lords Valley. Opening night is Nov. 3, from 5 to 7 p.m. The show is free and runs Nov. 1 to 30, open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., 7 days a week. Call 570-296-3357 for more information. The exhibition is hosted by the Hemlock Farms Artist Group.
