BERKELEY COLLEGE PRESENTS ARTWORK BY ALAN KAPLAN –
VIEWERS PARTICIPATE IN THE EXPERIENCE
Berkeley College is presenting the artwork of Alan Kaplan at its Midtown Manhattan Gallery, 3 East 43rd Street, New York City. The exhibit is on display from August 1 through 31—Monday through Friday—from 9:00 am to 7:30 pm and on Saturdays from 9:30 am to 3:00 pm.
Originally an art student at the School of Visual Arts, Mr. Kaplan recently returned to art after 30 years as a well-known award-winning fashion and commercial photographer. He exhibited his photographs at Berkeley College earlier this year.
“I am an admirer of the work of Alan Kaplan,” said Robert Keiber, Curator, Berkeley College. “His artwork and photographs reveal the connection between human beings, using a secret language to engage audiences. That work invites viewers to participate in the experience.”
Mr. Kaplan said, “As with my photographs, when I create art, it find it much more effective to allow the unexpected and capture the humanity. Those first few seconds will create a shock of recognition with the viewer; that is what I aim to capture.”
The artist’s new work was recently exhibited at the UpFront Gallery in Port Jervis, NY. He currently works with Orange Communications, PNC Bank, Qwest, Jack Daniel’s, T-Mobile, Yahoo, American Express, Nokia, MillerCoors, Nestea, Microsoft and Citibank.
