Pennswood Art Gallery Features Works by Fine Art Photographer Peter B. Treiber
An exhibit of abstract photographs entitled “Ethereal Luminescence,” by Peter B. Treiber opened in The Pennswood Art Gallery on Sunday, November 19. The gallery is located in Pennswood Village, a senior living community, at 1382 Newtown-Langhorne Road in Newtown, PA.
The works shown in this exhibit are part of Treiber’s current project, “Ethereal Luminescence,” a series of abstract, expressionist photographs that was, as he says, born out of an effort to express the happiness, joy and excitement experienced by viewers and participants at fireworks shows, urban street scenes and amusement parks. This resulted in chromogenic prints laminated to acrylic or as backlit (LED) Translite prints with neon accents that portray a magical explosion of color, light and motion — all resulting from Treiber’s not accepting the first representative images he produced.
Treiber, a native New Yorker and member of a family of painters and photographers, has exhibited extensively. He started his photography journey in New York City as a photo assistant, then went on to earn an AA degree in graphic design at S.U.N.Y. Framinngdale, NY, and BFA degree in photography from Art Center College of Design, CA.
The Pennwood Art Gallery, which has been exhibiting artists for 34 years including such famous names as Harry Leith Ross, Daniel Garber, and more recently Jon Redmond, Earl B. Lewis, Pat Martin, and Tremain Smith, is a non-profit, fine art gallery located in Pennswood Village on Rt. 413 south of the Newtown by-pass, adjacent to George School.
