Photography by John Fowler and Robert Sherman
February 1 – 28, 2013
Works by two Richardson photographers – John Fowler and Robert Sherman – will be presented at Artists’ Showplace gallery during February, featuring color landscape, nature, and urban photographs from Dallas and Paris France. The show runs February 1-28, with an opening reception on Friday, February 8, from 6 to 9 p.m. that is free (open) to the public, with wine and hors d’oeurves and music performed by University of Texas at Dallas music students.
Currently a senior lecturer and a director of corporate education at the University of Texas at Dallas Naveen Jindal School of Management, John Fowler’s interest in photography began when he worked at Odeon Photo in Paris, France. After returning home to New York, he studied fine art at Manhattanville College, honing his skills as a student assistant managing the college darkroom. After earning a bachelor of fine arts degree in 1973, he began a successful career in business and education. Today, John’s travel schedule allows him to visit and photograph interesting and exotic places. His interest is urban landscapes and urban “wildlife,” with a passion for nature, wildlife, and landscape photography. He recently started using his creative skills as an advocate for conservation and social causes. John participates in juried photography competitions and sells his photos online. He is a member of the Photographic Society of America and the Dallas Camera Club.
Robert Sherman, vice president of Monitroinics International, Inc., has a background and education in engineering and business, not photography. However, he has always been passionate about music and photography. “I enjoy photography because it is a combination of technology and art. Cameras today are very complex, but to be a good photographer you must also be imaginative and creative in addition to understanding the technology,” Sherman said. His objective is to photograph subjects that people will enjoy viewing, capturing the beauty of nature, especially wildlife, landscapes and urban settings. He is past president of the Dallas Camera Club, a Fellow of the Dallas Camera Club, and a member of the Photographic Society of America.
