Artist of the Month

Brian H. PetersonArtist for May

In my heart of hearts, I think always of the light. I feel it inside me, my own little bit of it, my spark… My whole creative life is a dance around the light. This light—it's taken possession of me. Made me crazy for it. I really don't care about anything else.”

—from The Smile At the Heart of Things

From his earliest days as an artist in the late 1970s, Philadelphia-area photographer, author, and curator Brian H. Peterson has been fascinated with both the physicality and spirituality of light. This exhibit samples Peterson’s light-centered photographs, from his early work done in Philadelphia’s Wissahickon Valley, to his most recent “Sea of Light” Series, made during his many trips to the North Carolina shore.

Dance Around the Light: Photographs by Brian H. Peterson will be on display in the Fireside Room from May 8-31.

Peterson will give a talk about his work in the McGinness Room on Saturday, May 23, at 1:00 p.m. All are invited, including members of Artists Equity Anyone who would like to join the lunch reception can make a reservation with Mary Kane (This email address is being protected from spambots.
