CATHARINE STEBBINS, Curator

Originally from Palm Springs, CA, Catharine Stebbins is a true hot dry weather, wide open spaces westerner. She graduated from the University of Redlands with a BA in History and minor in Art History. She is inspired by the quality of light, color, and composition in 17th century Dutch paintings, the forced perspective and real/surreal imagery in natural history dioramas, and the lyrical beauty of Andy Goldsworthy’s ephemeral sculpture. Stebbins’ work deals primarily with the psychological and physical manifestations of one’s personal connection to place, and the often humorous intersections of science and daily life.

Her photography has been featured in solo and group shows in Los Angeles, Boston and New York, is held in private collections and was recently acquired by 4Culture, a Seattle WA public art initiative. Her series Certain Places was on exhibition in a two person show at Newspace Center for Photography in Portland, OR in July 2009. She is an invited artist to the upcoming Lishui International Photo Festival in Lishui, Zhejiang, China, November 2009. Stebbins currently lives and works in Altadena, CA.

MARILYN J. GALOSY, Co-Curator

Marilyn J. Galosy grew up in a variety of places (Dallas TX, St. Louis MO, Oakland, CA) before ending up in Los Angeles to attend Occidental College. She graduated with a BA in Art/Art History with an emphasis in Film and a minor in Biology. In her work she explores the inner life we all have but rarely share. Drawn to images of contemplation, whether her own web of thoughts embedded in self portraits and images of back roads, or that hidden life of others, she attempts to capture them in the fleeting seconds of the shutter.

Galosy’s work has received Honorable Mentions from the International Photography Awards 2004 – 2007 and published in B&W Magazine’s 2005 Annual Single Image Contest with a Merit Award. Most recently, images from her Backroads series were featured in the group show “Flashpoint between the Fleeting and the Eternal” at Andrew Shire Gallery, Los Angeles.
