David Helfer WELLS - Jurist

David Helfer Wells is a film-maker and photographer who divides his time between Providence, Rhode Island and Bangalore, India. One day you can find him creating still and moving images for clients, such as Edible Rhody and the Providence Preservation Society on the unique local culture of America’s smallest state. Other days he may be working on personal/grant funded projects on the beautiful Narragansett Bay with the support of Rhode Island’s Council for Humanities and State Council on the Arts.  In India’s “Silicon City” Bangalore, he is busy creating visual narratives for clients such as Bryn Mawr College and Aramco World or working on personal/grant funded projects supported by the Fulbright and Alicia Patterson Foundations.

He has worked on assignment for such magazines as Fortune, Life, National Geographic, Newsweek, The Sunday New York Times, and Time, among others. One editor described him as a “…specialist in intercultural communication and visual narratives that excel in their creative mastery of light, shadow and sound, stills and video.” His project on the pesticide poisoning of California farm workers was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize by the Philadelphia Inquirer. He has also worked for corporations such as Consolidated Natural Gas and DuPont as well as for non-profits such as the Ford Foundation and the New Israel Fund.  More at davidhwells.com

Abstract Avant Garde

Joan HALL - Jurist

Joan Hall works in mixed media and large-scale sculptural installations with an emphasis on the materials of handmade paper, glass and metal. She is known for her interest in experimentation and the use of printmaking to create large-scale works and installations in her Rhode Island studio.

Her work combines her need to make art that is visually arresting with her passion for marine advocacy. Hall wants to initiate a conversation about the peril we will face if we choose to ignore climate change. Many of her exhibition installations polarize works about cause and effect, the past and the present, love and loss.    

Hall’s work is exhibited internationally and her most recent installation “ The Invasion of Hull Cove” was included in the European Cultural Center’s “Personal Structures “ a collateral exhibition during the Venice Biennale 2019. Joan’s work is exclusively represented by Childs Gallery in Boston.

SELECTED WORKS by Sharon Alemany


 

Jody BROWN: I have been taking pictures my whole life, but it is only since 2012 that I began to learn about my camera and to study photography by taking classes and reading.  My first workshop was in New Brunswick, Canada, with Freeman Patterson.  It was a levitating experience, both because of Freeman and the other students.  In 2015, I began entering shows and spending more time with other photographers, in workshops and photo tours.  I feel very fortunate to have found this world for creativity, and the extraordinary people who inhabit it.

I have been told I look happy when I am photographing.  I know that is true.  I am intensely curious about the world we inhabit, and the humans being in it.  And when I point my literal or virtual lens at something or someone that sparks my interest, I am happy.

For subject matter I enjoy playing with architectural elements, color, and pattern (sometimes with deliberate camera motion),  resulting in photographs that may evoke pleasure, unease, wonderment, or simply curiosity.  But it is, most of all, the quirky nature of human behavior and gesture that makes me take to the street.  I find my photographic eye focusing most frequently on those small human moments of humor, poignancy, joy, determination, pride, unease, and/or ambiguity.  Serendipity is not a small part of this equation, but patience and perseverance tend to invite more of these moments. jodybrown44@gmail.com

Bonnie JAFFE is a native Rhode Islander and has lived in the state her entire life. Bonnie credits her dad, Murray Perlman, for introducing her to the excitement of photography when he gave her her first Brownie camera at age 7.  She later graduated to his Bessler Topcon Super D 35mm camera, and developed film and printed pictures in their basement darkroom.  She was inspired early in life to capture moments of time on film.  In high school, Bonnie began her formal study of photography, which continued at the Rhode Island School of Design from which she graduated in 1978, earning a BFA.  Bonnie then worked as a freelance photographer and then became a commercial producer/writer for the next 15 years.

Bonnie’s particular focus is on capturing people at work and at play, but enjoys all facets of the art.   Bonnie Jaffe is an award winning photographer and an artist member of the Providence Art Club, Wickford Art Association, Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts, as well as many other art associations.  Bonnie resides with her family in Barrington, RI.  www.photojaffe.com

SELECTED WORK by Bonnie Jaffe


 

Paul MELLO picked up photography at the age of fourteen after a friend of his brother showed him an Argus C3 camera and a makeshift darkroom. He was hooked after that, and after working all summer, he bought his first Nikon camera. Little did he know that that would be the easiest part of this obsession. The Navy came next, but as luck would have it, they trained him to be a Photographer's Mate and then sent Paul to a photo lab in the Philippines. Well, after his four year Navy career, he settled back in Newport and in a short time became an Associated Press stringer for the Newport area. He also started taking photos of  major sailing events like the 1980 Americas's Cup and OSTAR Single Handed Race from England etc. He had a modicum of success with some pictures in the NY Times and major Sailing magazines at the time. But the passion wained in 1983 and he took a reluctant hiatus from photography.

His love of photography has come back with some new and exciting twists. Gone are the chemicals and the darkroom which has been replaced with a computer and printer that has proved to be as equally a demanding mistress as the darkroom ever was. His passion to capture and reveal life's uniqueness to us that may be hidden at first glance or lost after the moment has past is his driving force. If a photograph doesn't grab you in the first two seconds and make you look a lot longer, He would suggest that a different approach is in order! pauljmello@gmail.com

Hiroko SHIKASHIO: My fascination with color has always been the key element in my work.

If the sun rays capture our hearts much like a rainbow does, my desire is to express the vitality and bursting energy of that spectrum.

Over the years I have also developed a strong passion for traveling around the world. Traveling not only opens your eyes to other cultures, but offers great opportunities to observe the wonderful nature and stir up creative energy for photography and other art forms. hirokoart@gmail.com

Frances TOPPING holds a Bachelor of Science in Geography with Botany/Zoology minor; Sheffield, England, as well as a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design with Illustration and Photography from University of Akron, Ohio and a Natural Science Illustration Certificate from the Rhode Island School of Design.  She participated in further studies with noted artists Don Getz, Marc Moon, Tom Lynch, Fred Graff, and Guild of Natural Science artists and ongoing natural history study.

Lifelong interests in natural history and art have culminated in paintings and illustrations primarily reflecting a nature theme. Capturing nature’s many faces is my goal. Helping others to stop and see the intricacy, beauty and scientific wonder of nature will I hope inspire others to care for, preserve and enjoy the natural world as well as learn from it.

I was born in England where I developed a love of the countryside and nature. My later experience as an interpretive naturalist in the United States has added to my knowledge and this is reflected in my artwork, a combination of the natural world and its expression on paper, whether for viewing enjoyment or instructional purposes. www.francestoppingvisuals.com
