Current Exhibitions

Ruth Gruber: Photojournalist

October 16, 2017 – January 7, 2018

This exhibition celebrates the remarkable life, vision and heroic tenacity of this 20th century pioneer and trailblazer, Ruth Gruber, born in Brooklyn on September 30, 1911. Gruber became the youngest PhD in the world at age 20, before going on to become an international foreign correspondent and photojournalist. Photographs included in the show span more than 50 years and four continents, from Gruber’s groundbreaking reportage of the Soviet Artic in the 1930s and iconic images of Jewish refugees on the ship Exodus 1947, to her later photographs of Ethiopian Jews in the midst of civil war in the 1980s. A selection of Gruber’s vintage prints never before exhibited will be presented along with contemporary prints made from her original negatives. With her boundless empathy and razor sharp intellect, a Hermes typewriter and a camera as her tools, Gruber served as an inspiration through her love of adventure, fearlessness, powerful intellect and defying tradition throughout an extraordinary career. She passed away in November 2016 at the age of 105. This traveling exhibition is organized by the International Center of Photography.

Pop Up Photo Exhibit by Neil Dern

After spending over 40 years working as a Financial Engineer on Wall Street, Neil Dern turned to photography to offset his feelings from the terrorist attack of 9/11. He was not only a casual survivor to the attack, but also a visual researcher of the event and it’s aftermath.

Dern left Wall Street after 9/11, and has devoted his interest to photography since that horrific day. "In my work, I have tried to show the beauty of the surroundings in its natural settings."

His work has been exhibited at ArtMedia Gallery in Wynwood, Cleveland Clinic Foundation and in several private collections.
