The Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum presents "Details of Architecture: Photographs of Urban Artifacts by Ellen Fisch"
from Friday, October 3 continuing through Friday, October 31, 2008. Ellen Fisch is an artist in many media and subjects, but she has always had a special passion for the details of architecture created in various materials on building facades. Since studying photography at Brooklyn College, she has dedicated herself to capturing these often-unnoticed details--flowers, gargoyles, arabesques, and interlocking bands--that decorate public and private structures, preserving a visual record of peripheral elements that provide insight into the architectural aesthetics of their period. The motifs that she has preserved with her lens include ornamental details influenced by the art and cultures of Africa, Asia, and Europe as well as the United States, celebrating a craftsmanship that makes, as the artist has noted, “even the most modest establishment a structure of beauty.” Her work both satisfies the eye and records an important part of New York City’s architectural heritage. Ellen Fisch has been a Premiere Portfolio Artist at absolutearts.com since 2004.
Ms. Fisch has studied at the Art Students League in New York City and holds a degree in art and industrial design from Brooklyn College and a masters in art from New York University. She has exhibited her photographs, watercolors, oils, and pastels widely in museums and galleries in New York, and throughout the United States, and served as artist in residency at several workshops. Her paintings and photographs are in the private collection of Elizabeth the Queen Mother of Great Britain and in many others in the U.S., Europe, Asia, and Australia, as well as in such corporate collections as those of Delta Airlines, the Royal Bank of Canada, and Morgan Stanley, and the permanent collections of City University of New York and the Vatican.
The Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum is located at 94 Broadway, across from City Hall, in the City of Newburgh. The Karpeles Museums are a national chain with ten in the U.S. specializing in the preservation and display of original, historically significant documents and manuscripts. Museum Hours: Tue.-Sat., 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sunday, 12 to 4 p.m. Admission is always free.
