Artist Talk “Photographs and Improvisation” by Jim Stasiak

March 24 @ 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

LAND Gallery in Pawling, New York, and the Sherman Artists Association are pleased to announce a new show by photographer Jim Stasiak  ,”Photographs and Improvisation”.  His photographs of a simple leaf take one into a new dimension of seeing, emotion, and expertise. Stasiak’s belief is that digital applications are specialized tools that can expand the creative range and perception of the artist in an intuitive, beneficial manner.
The opening reception is Saturday, March 2, from 5 – 7pm.
Stasiak is giving an artist talk on Sunday, March 24, from 3 – 5pm.
The show is from March 1 – 31.

“Photography is a revealing art. I rely on emotion and expertise to recognize an image, and skill, taste, and judgment to reveal an energetically attractive interpretation,” says Stasiak.   Much like jazz improvisation, his work evolves in stages that focus on and intensify his emotional connection with the emerging image. There is always a blend of conscious decisions with mindful guidance. He wants the viewer to perceive new context, new color, new structure, new projections, and new feelings–and improvise with their own mind’s eye.
Stasiak is an award-winning photographic artist, musician, and printing arts professional living in New Milford, CT. His photography spans documentary, creative, travel, and constructed imaging, using film since 1965, digital since 1995, and fully digital since 2002. He has taught photographers and artists how digital tools affect the photographic process, how traditional skills can translate from the physical to the metaphysical, and how to optimize images to best utilize the technical considerations inherent in producing digital art.
The Sherman Artists Association is sponsoring the Featured Artist Shows at LAND Gallery, which includes the work of some of the most highly regarded photographers and painters in the local area. There is also a curated artisanal gift shop that sells a selection of locally handmade fine art and gifts.
