Our Current Show

"Winter of Color" by Wayne Marcus 

Exhibit: December 5, 2015 - January 16, 2016

Reception: Saturday, December 12th 4-6pm


I am always involved in creating.  During different phases of my life I have experienced photography, interior design, oil painting, pastel and ink drawing, neon sculpture, and jewelry design. I am a spiritual renaissance man living in Peekskill, New York.

Having spent most of my working life, as an entrepreneurial Interior Designer, I love what that practice gave to me. I was able to improve the interior environment of people in their workplace, home, and other public spaces. Add to that my love of people, and the one on one, that I experience as their Psychotherapist; which of course is another more personal form of interior design. 

Over the years I have shot photos documenting travel and family events. My passion now is photographing everything that is meaningful to me. What prompted that to happen was my leaving the rigors and pace of my daily work routine. This slowing down allowed me to see the beauty that surrounds me, and I thirst to document and share those moments with you. What I want to bring to everyone I come in contact with is, “look at this everyday object that we take for granted, and spend a moment and have a visual or emotional experience with what you see”.

I presently shoot photos with my iPhone 6s plus and a Panasonic Lumix digital camera.Most of the images you will experience have only minor adjustments to exposure and sharpness, and I have not gone the route of using Photoshop.

The Exhibition you are about to experience, “Winter of Color,” was inspired by Drew Claxton of BRC Gallery.  Her request to have colorful images during the winter darkness, to uplift the spirit, led me to prepare the following images for the show you are about to encounter.  They are all done on metallic archival paper to create a dramatic luminous luster.  I welcome you to share your experience of my photos with me.
