Don Gorvett’s Black Bear Fine Art Gallery is opening an exhibition with the works of two artists, July 19th 1-4pm, “Homage to a Photographer: Stuart Nudelman” and  “Recent Works of Sculptor William Duffy.”

Homage to Stuart Nudelman regards a nationally recognized abstract photographer along with William F. Duffy, a nationally recognized sculptor presenting new works along with an artist’s talk on July 19th 1-4pm. The show will run three weeks. Refreshments will be served.

Stuart Nudelman, Oct. 6, 1931 – March 28, 2014, is recognized for realizing pure shape, form and color of common objects around us and presenting these images as abstractions through color photography. Nudelman’s work inspires introspective thinking, creativity and is still, as throughout the artist’s life, promoting photography as a fine art.  A lifelong photographer, Nudelman was the Ogunquit Art Association’s first juried photographer, and whose career(s) revolved around the art world as an education administrator in New York, photojournalist and an arts columnist for the York County Coast Star in York Maine. This show coincides with the Maine Photo Project, a statewide collaboration between museums and galleries.

William Duffy, a sculptor from the mid-Atlantic region, who’s large-scale public work explores the universality of the human form and its relationship to the environment will exhibit his new work. Over the past fifteen years, Duffy has been exploring the underlying forms in nature and exposing the intrinsic elegant geometries through abstract mathematical concepts. Mr. Duffy will be giving a talk about his new work. “Both artists are extremely visionary in their points of view and are masters of their mediums. The works in this show represent a lifelong exploration of the abstract one observes in recognizable imagery,” explains Mr. Gorvett.
