Kenneth C. Larter
This retrospective exhibition represents Dr. Larter’s interest in photography that began when he purchased his first single lens reflex camera in 1969.
Although his passion for photography has waxed and waned over the decades he has always been interested in portraiture and images that complement one another. This exhibition juxtaposes photographs in combinations of twos and threes. Diptychs and Triptychs are thematically related images that are designed to be seen and studied together. The combination hopefully evokes a particular mood or suggests a story to the viewer.
In the Renaissance period these combined images were often religious in nature and meant to stimulate personal devotion. This aspect of the show can best be summed up in the phrase “reverence for life.” Dr. Larter hopes visitors will come away with a deeper respect for the human person as well as the landscapes of our living. A special thank you is extended to Mr. Michael Billick and T & F Camera of Vineland, without whom this exhibit would not be possible.
I am a self taught basket maker that has been making baskets for more than thirty years. About eighteen years ago pottery entered my world. For several years I worked them separately, then there was nothing else in my mind but to work them as one. So my “Mixed Media” was born.
I have displayed in many craft shows, exhibited in galleries and taught in New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Maryland. Presently I teach adults and children both basketry and pottery at my home studio at Wiltedgrass Horse Farm in Southern New Jersey. I continue to do craft shows and galleries keeping my small studio busy. Now I hope to expand my world via the internet.
