Conny Parsons presents a series of large oil paintings that are visually or physically split. Parsons references objects in and aspects of nature such as stones, earth, wind, air and water. Like or dissimilar natural objects are shifted or joined into a whole that is greater than the components. Like objects are repeated, reversed or misplaced. Dissimilar images are joined in a cohesive way through color, shapes, movement, transparency, and repetition. This series is about the continual change in the primitive, natural world. The artist allowed imagery to happen as she painted and playfully terms the resulting series as “Organized Chaos”. Parsons has a BS in Art Education from the University of Wisconsin and also studied Fine Art at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and Graphic Design at the University of Minnesota and the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. She has taught art, worked in graphic design, illustration, and mural painting. She also works in mixed media, watercolor and mono print. Her work is in private collections throughout the United States.

Howard Brunner is a Philadelphia-based photographer and an Associate Member of 3rd St.Gallery since 2015. Though he is best known for his documentary-style photographs of the urban environment, it is the metaphysical encounter with that environment that drives him to make photographs. Everyday Matters features a small sample selection from what is a much larger body of work entitled Urban Eyes. This and other bodies of his work are available at his website:www.hbphotoart.com.
Howard’s work is represented in the collections of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the James A. Michener Museum of Art in Doylestown, PA, and the Allentown Museum of Art in Allentown, PA. He has exhibited his work regionally, nationally and internationally for 36 years. He holds an MFA in Photography from the University of Delaware (1984) and a BFA in Graphic Design from the Philadelphia College of Art (1971). He was a Professor of Photography at the Art Institute of Photography for 31 years (retired) and remains a faculty member of the Temple University Architecture Program, offering a course entitled Photography and Visual Literacy.
