Waverly Small Works Gallery to showcase Linda Hinkle’s art


The opening reception is scheduled for September 30

The Waverly Small Works Gallery is pleased to announce the upcoming exhibition of works by artist Lisa Hinkle. Ms. Hinkle is a photographer who has lived most of her life in northeastern Pennsylvania and currently resides in South Abington Township. She earned an MFA in Photography in 1998 from Marywood University, where she taught photography for 19 years.

Although now retired from teaching, she continues to explore photography and exhibit her work. Hinkle’s work has been exhibited regionally, nationally and internationally. Additionally, she has self-published two photography books, The Scanned Object: Images by Lisa Hinkle in 2011 and Monochrome, a compilation of her black and white photographs in 2013.

In this exhibition, A Thief in the Garden of Gaia, she continues to push the boundaries of the digitized objects that have fascinated her for almost 20 years. Flowers, fruits, nests and keys are some of the subjects picked for their beauty, color or other simple qualities. In his current work, different textural effects are used to give the subject matter more depth and interest, often reminiscent of a painted canvas.

The scanned images sometimes evoke or pay homage to traditional Dutch master painters in their dramatic use of light and color. Others often add a more playful touch of fantasy to its effect, emphasizing the timeliness of the contemporary and ephemeral character of the digital image. The overall effect, although classic in appearance, is actually an illusion of the scanner itself.

Always remember that even though it appears to be captured in a particular place at a particular time, it is really just objects resting on a piece of glass with a size of only 8 1/2″ x 11″. She hopes the images will provoke reflection on both the beautiful and ephemeral nature of the selected subjects or evoke nostalgia for those objects that have endured the passage of time.

An opening reception will be held from 5-7 p.m. on Friday, September 30, and Hinkle’s works will be on display until November 3. The gallery is a project of the F. Lammot Belin Arts Foundation whose mission is to promote the appreciation of art in the community. and to nurture and encourage the human spirit through art.
