Gallery 14 Presents Images By Grebanier and Hoerl

“GIRL IN WINDOW”: This work by Scott Hoerl is featured in “Found Images,” on view at Gallery 14 Fine Art Photography in Hopewell October 8 through October 23. A reception is on October 9 from 1 to 3 p.m.

Gallery 14 Fine Art Photography will feature the works of Alice Grebanier of Branchburg and Scott Hoerl, of Yardley, Pa., from October 8 to October 23. In the exhibits, the two artists will explore different visions of their individual photographic styles. A Meet the Artists reception is on October 9 from 1 to 3 p.m.

Grebanier is a longtime member of Gallery 14. She often experiments with new styles and techniques, with exhibits that have always generated conversations on what is being seen. For “Altered Vision,” she explores the world of Infrared photography.

“The title of this exhibit has a double meaning,” said Grebanier. “I used an infrared camera to capture all of the images, so that the light caught on the sensor mostly came from a region of the spectrum that our eyes do not detect. Then, in processing the images, I brought colors from the visible spectrum back in. When walking around with my camera, looking through the eyepiece, I often was delighted by the strange world I saw: glowing white leaves in place of all of the greenery. The luminosity was so very different from normal vision. Then, interpreting the images, bringing in semi-plausible colors in a reduced palette on top of the altered luminosity of the scenes, I found another dreamy, altered vision of the world.”

Hoerl is an invited guest artist and will be featured in the Goodkind Gallery. He is a longtime photographer and has had images selected for inclusion in Gallery 14’s Annual Juried Exhibits. He has had a lifelong interest in the arts. While studying music in Vienna, his eye was drawn to the architectural marvels of Europe which became a focus for his photography. Over time he has transitioned to street photography and more recently to nature, flowers and still-life images using items found on his daily walks. His exhibit “Found images” will bring all of those interests and images together.

Gallery 14 is located at 14 Mercer Street in Hopewell. It is open on Saturday and Sunday from 12 to 5 p.m. Appointments to visit the gallery at other times can be made by emailing galleryfourteen@yahoo.com. For more information, visit gallery14.org.
