PHILADELPHIA- A unique and eclectic offering of photographic works by New York artist Jefferson Hayman will be on view. The show will run from December 6th through March 1st. *An Opening Reception will take place on First Friday, December 6th from 5 – 8pm.

 

Jefferson Hayman is an artist that works within the themes of nostalgia, common symbols and memory. He lives and works in Tappan, NY a small town located minutes outside of Manhattan and filled with the history of the American War of Independence. From his training and environment Hayman has forged an individual visual sensibility. The photographs themselves are handcrafted silver gelatin & platinum prints that seem historically timeless, captured with a delicacy of tonality that harks back to the highest traditions of graphic art. The works are then paired with antique or artist made frames which place each piece into the realm of unique statements. His work can be found in many private and public collections, most notably The Museum of Modern Art , The New York Public Library, President Bill Clinton , Robert DeNiro, The Boston Athenaeum and Ralph Lauren.
