Hampton Photo Arts is excited to announce our annual art show, taking place at Ashawagh Hall November 9th and 10th, 2019. Similar to our show last year, we have assigned a theme to the work in order to create a cohesive show. This year, the theme of the show is perspective. "Your Worlds Perspective Art Show" will showcase the work of local artists that relate to this theme.


 
Eric Fischl
Eric Fischl has become the painter laureate of American anxiety in the eighties. From the moment that he exhibited "Sleepwalker", 1979, his image of a teenage boy resentfully jerking off in a suburban wading pool, Fischl has zeroed in on the discontents of the White Tribe whose territory stretches from Scarsdale to Anaheim: unreachable kids, grotesque parents, small convulsions of voyeurism and barely concealed incestuous longing.

Robert Gwathmey

Born in Richmond, Gwathmey personally experienced the challenges faced by the working class at a formative age. His father, a railroad engineer, died in a terrible train accident before Gwathmey's birth, leaving his mother and later her children to work in low-paying jobs to make ends meet. The children held part-time jobs around their schoolwork and Gwathmey once reported that he recognized the social inequalities in his community at an early age.

Oddly enough, he developed a greater interest in art while working on a freighter during the 1920s. He drew to fill up his free time, often sketching other crew members, and when the ship stopped at European ports, he began to visit museums and galleries. When, at 22, he returned to the United States, he enrolled at the Maryland Institute of Design in Baltimore and later at the prestigious Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia.
