“PRINCETON PECHA”: The works of photographer Eileen Hohmuth-Lemonick and other local artists will be featured in a free virtual program presented by the Arts Council of Princeton on Wednesday June 9 from 8 to 9:15 p.m.
Princeton Arts Council presents Princeton Pecha, bring together local artists to share their work in a virtual program inspired by PechaKucha, a lively and upbeat format created in Japan and designed for more spectacle and less talk. Artists in the spotlight on June 9 8 p.m. to 9:15 p.m. program features Alan Chimacoff, Habiyb, Mary Leck, Craig Shofed, Brass Rabbit and Eileen Hohmuth-Lemonick.
Each artist will show 20 slides for 20 seconds each (approximately 7 minutes per artist), exposing the audience to a range of visual expressions.
“As a photographer and teacher, I have observed the exponential growth of photography over time, from the darkroom era to digital,” said curator and host Madelaine Shellaby. “The June Pecha police station offered the opportunity to find people whose work stood out from the crowd and demonstrated a guideline towards a single goal. The photographers I have chosen show a clear commitment not only to finding their own truths through their work, but to making a difference within their community. The many ways to do this include revealing psychological truths, observing social dysfunctions, and my favorite, uplifting the moment with poetic beauty.
