This week I am continuing to feature photographers that are editors, curators, gallerists, or bloggers, yet manage to maintain their own vision.
It’s not often that you find a gallerist in the same league with the photographers she’s promoting. Jennifer Schlesinger, from Verve Gallery in Santa Fe, is a accomplished visonary in her own right. Her meditative images are stripped down to an essential experience with the natural world and leave the viewer feeling humbled by the connection.
“Jennifer Schlesinger is a Connecticut native, who graduated from the College of Santa Fe in 1998 with a B.A. in Photography and Journalism. Jennifer has taught photography for various organizations and schools and has been an adjunct faculty member in the Marion Center for Photographic Arts, College of Santa Fe. She has been investigating the world through photography for over twelve years and has exhibited at numerous colleges, art organizations and galleries including Southwest regional venues such as Center for Contemporary Arts (Santa Fe), Eastern New Mexico University, and Santa Fe Art Institute as well as nationally, such as the Portland Northwest College of Art, the Chelsea Art Museum and most recently at the Bridge Art Fair in Chicago. Her work has been published in numerous catalogues and magazines, and is represented in many private as well as public collections including the Huntington Botanical Art Collections in California and the The New Mexico Museum of Art, Santa Fe. In 2005 she received three honors of recognition; a grant from the New Mexico Arts Division; a Golden Light Award in Landscape Photography by the Maine Photographic Workshops and she was a finalist in the Willard Van Dyke Grant given by the New Mexico Center for Photography. In 2007 she was nominated for the Santa Fe Prize for Photography by The Center and the Eliot Porter Fellowship by the New Mexico Council on Photography. And in 2007 she was also awarded the Center for Contemporary Arts Photography Auction Award.”
