Presentation of

Hope Kahn’s Pin-Hole Photography

“The photograph is but the bridge that provides the emotional and spiritual connection between the viewer and the art. I look for the darkness in the light, the mystery in the everyday. I spend my time blending nature and the figure into a narrative for the viewer. My mind is wandering, wondering, where my next image hides. I concede to my impulses and instincts to bring mysteries to light.”
– Hope Kahn

H. Allen Benowitz
www.H-AllenArt.com

 

 

H. Allen Benowitz, a self-taught photographer, born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, migrated to Miami, FL, in the 1960s. As an evolution from the accomplishments of his professional court reporting, legal videography, and videoconferencing career, the camera became a natural segue to photography, awakening an earlier passion from childhood. “My private passion for photography is motivated by my love of life.  My purpose is to capture and share my visual adventures and travels with you. I consider myself a life sampler, which is reflected in the variety of my work.” Recognition for his work includes a Judges’ Award at the University of Miami Lowe Art Museum’s Beaux Arts Festival and honorable mention in the International Kodak Contest. His work has been featured in numerous publications, including Miami Monthly Magazine, Coastal Elegance & Wealth Magazine, ARTnews, Art Business News, and the Laurel of Asheville.

Michael Gora has lived in south Florida for over fifty years but he has also lived in the United States’ largest cities, New York and Los Angeles, small towns, York, Pennsylvania, and Boca Raton, Florida, and a country village, Valley Bend, West Virginia. “A wide range of experience has helped me to observe and appreciate wildly diverse American lifestyles and photographic possibilities.” Gora’s artistic voice speaks in black and white, but concentrates on human form in all circumstances. “I try to keep the work simple, direct, and easy to understand.” His photographs have been accepted in permanent collections of museums in Boca Raton, and Indianapolis. His work has been well received by galleries locally and nationally.

Russell’s photographs have been shown in museums and galleries across the United States. He is one of the only photographers to win an award in the prestigious All Florida Juried Competition and Exhibition.

Hasson Schwartz Ceramics

Women of Moroccan descent and master ceramicists, mother and daughter Anita Schwartz and Alexandra Hasson create functional porcelain ceramics vessels. Influenced by traditional Moroccan forms and Zillij mosaic tile designs, their approach harmonizes seemingly incongruent elements into vessels both familiar and eccentric. “We have been brought up surrounded by a rich culture that places great emphasis on the importance of hospitality and family traditions. Moroccans welcome the opportunity to show their generosity and hospitality by welcoming guests into their homes to visit and share meals. The vessels are ornately painted and decorated so that meals served will feast the eyes as well as the palate.”
