Student Artwork Update: Paul Katcher

Sunday, August 21st, 2016

We are pleased to present photographs by SVACE student Paul Katcher, created in conjunction with the courses, “Art and the Everyday” with Magali Duzant and Jeanette Spicer and “New York, Just as I Pictured It” with Ellen Wallenstein.

Paul Katcher’s interest in photography grew out of the tech environment, creating images since he bought his first digital camera, a then-state-of-the-art 1.3 megapixel Olympus C-900 Zoom around the turn of the millennium.

See Paul’s work in our exhibition space at 209 East 23 Street until August 31!  Find more of his work at his website and Instagram pages.

What have SVACE faculty members been up to? We have exciting updates from Steve Brodner and E. Adam Attia.

Steve Brodner illustrated the cover of TIME Magazine, inventing a face for the ubiquitous gremlin who has trolled all of us at some point in our internet adventures.

E. Adam Attia will participate in Autonomous Vehicles, a group exhibition opening this week at Sara Nightingale Gallery in East Hampton. The gallery is the first to exhibit Attia’s works from his Drone Zone series, which led to his arrest in late 2012.
