Gallery on Main's Artist of the Month series continues in February with photographs by Monroe, New Jersey-based artist Debra Fedchin. Says the Gallery’s co-owner, Shaun Daley, “Her unique perspective is something that must be seen in person to truly appreciate.”
Meet the artist at a free opening reception on Saturday, February 2, 2019 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.
Debra’s work will be on view, and available for purchase, from February 1 through 28.
Says Debra, "As a self-taught photographer from New Jersey, from the time I picked up my first Kodak Instamatic camera, I have enjoyed capturing moments in time. It truly turned into a life’s passion when I acquired a Minolta SRT-101 at the tender age of 18. My photographic work runs the gamut of photojournalism through fine art photography and has been displayed as a resident gallery artist, used in publishing as well as being featured in regional juried art shows. Some of my work has appeared in Travel & Leisure, Pennsylvania Magazine, and as a contributing artist for Arcangel images, my work has graced book covers and has been utilized for media in both the U.S. and Europe. Through my photography I strive to capture an image that hopefully will bring to mind a pleasant remembrance long forgotten, or elicit a mood, as well as to offer you a glimpse of the ordinary to view its simple beauty that is often overlooked. My portfolio is diverse with glimpses of the somewhat unusual to the bucolic countryside."
