PHOTO CAPTION: “MOTIF #1″
Stetson Galllery in the Unitarian Universalist Church of Marblehead, 28 Mugford St., Marblehead, will feature the color photographs of John Fogle throughout the month of February. The opening reception for “Color on Canvas” will be held Sunday, February 5, from 12-2 p.m. in the Gallery.
With a Masters Degree in Film from Boston University, John Fogle has been involved in the visual arts for 45 years. He has worked in film exhibition, distribution and production. He enjoyed 20 years as an audio-visual and freelance photographer, serving numerous publishing and technical clients. Until 2009, Fogle spent 15 years as a creative director with promotion-marketing agencies.
“Most of my photo-art has been in black & white, which I tend to prefer,” Fogle says of this collection of photos. “With this exhibit, ‘Color on Canvas,’ I am celebrating color and composition with a bit of a candy-eye. These images have been captured during my travels to Asia, Europe, and throughout New England from 1968 to the present.”
John Fogle has had several local photography exhibits, and has won
numerous awards for his photography – including a Hatch Award from the Art Directors Club of Boston. Since moving to Marblehead, he has had many works accepted in the Marblehead Festival of Arts photography exhibit, where he has earned a Best-in-Show Award, a Samuel Chamberlain Award, a Photojournalism Award, and several Outstanding Work and Honorable Mention awards.
Also an avid theatre director, John has more than 80 stage productions to his credit. He is co-founder of Marblehead’s Mugford Street Players and is Artistic Director Emeritus of the Salem Theatre Company. John and his wife Jean have travelled extensively. Most of the images displayed in “Color On Canvas” were captured on these adventures. Canvas prints on display vary in size from 12″X12″ up to 30″x40” and all are for sale, ready to hang.
