Photograph Exhibit Opens November 5 at Oyster Point Hotel
Red Bank, NJ – Red Bank’s Oyster Point Hotel will exhibit a unique series of photographs by local artist Gerda Liebmann that capture a year of changing light and mood, looking east out over the Navesink River from Locust Point.
The exhibit, entitled “Navesink 52: A River Year,” will open Friday, November 5 at 7:00 PM. This is a free wine and cheese reception and the public is welcome to attend.
After the opening, the exhibit will remain on display at the hotel through November and December. All 52 photographs were taken from the same spot, just north of the Oceanic Bridge, one week apart from each other.
“Time-lapse photography is usually presented sequentially, which gives the viewer a sense of events passing by at high speed,” Mrs. Liebmann explains. “The concept of this piece is quite different. I want to give people the opportunity to slow down and enjoy an entire year of the Navesink River’s special, evermodulating beauty at their leisure—especially since so many of us only have a moment to glimpse that beauty as we’re driving from one place to another.”
Mrs. Liebmann, a resident of the Highlands, was born in Switzerland and studied design at the Kunstgewerbeschule in St. Gallen. She came to the United States in 1981 and founded IP&D, a leading-edge graphic design consultancy. After leaving the design business to raise her children, she began to pursue her interest in the fine arts—working primarily in acrylics and installations.
Mrs. Liebmann’s work has been exhibited in venues ranging from the Honk Kong Cultural Centre to the U.S. Army base in Ansbach, Germany—where her installation piece “490” was recently featured in a group show commemorating the events of September 11, 2001.
