Mark Beard (also known as Bruce Sargeant) is a contemporary artist who merges late 19th century English style portraiture with American 1980s fashion photography. Bruce Sargeant is one of six invented artist persona channeled by Beard, who celebrates traditionally masculine themes such as athletics and exploration. Hudson County Community College is proud to have Beard’s work included in the College’s Foundation Art Collection.

Birgit Blyth is an innovative and prolific photographer who works in a darkroom yet uses no camera! Blyth has been experimenting with a technique known as chromoskedasic painting since the early 1990s. The unusual process involves the use of silver particles in black and white photographic paper to scatter light at different wavelengths when exposed. Birgit Blyth succeeds at keeping her work fresh using cutting-edge methods.

David Dew Bruner creates still lifes and figures drawn in graphite that channel the highly graphic influences of Giorgio Morandi, Diego Velasquez, and the Italian futurists like Giacomo Balla and Marcel Duchamp. Bruner pairs his works, which explore depth, movement, space and repetition, with vintage frames from his collection of refashioned mirror frames from the 1960s or hand-painted antique Italian frames. 

Kate Hamilton’s larger-than-life garments, which are made of sewn sailcloth, will be suspended from the ceiling for a breathtaking and thought-provoking display. Her giant “Baby Bonnet” and “Pussy-Bow Shirt” dance above the floor, familiar shapes presented in unprecedented scale, breaking the usual associations with clothing. With these works, Hamilton examines clothing’s role in the perception of femininity. 

James O’Shea’s painting success is two-fold – the skillful fluidity with which he can traverse mediums and palettes, and an innate ability to reconcile his perception of nature with what he creates on the canvas. Selections for this exhibit include a variety of oil, acrylic, and fresco-secco paintings framed in uniform white wooden shadow boxes. 

An artists’ reception for this exhibit will be held on Wednesday, April 4 from 5:00pm to 7:00pm. The reception is open to the general public. 

The Benjamin J. Dineen III and Dennis C. Hull Gallery is open Monday through Saturday from 11:00am to 5:00pm and Tuesday from 11:00am to 8:00pm.  The Gallery is closed Sundays and holidays.
