“Art in the Workplace” invites the inspiration of art and culture into that time of our day when we are called to productivity, creativity and innovation.
The Newtown branch of the international financial service company Raymond James, headquartered in St. Petersburg, Florida, is currently featuring the works of 10 local photographers in their office space in Newtown, Pennsylvania.
The hallways, lobby and offices are filled with a great variety of photographs ranging from landscapes, portraits, abstracts to wildlife. African wildlife photographer Buddy Eleazer is paying tribute to and honoring the raw beauty of elephants, giraffes and lions in their natural habitats. Dore’ Vorum’s abstract photography reminds us there is perspective in everyday objects, only to be discovered by the unique and interpretive eye of each individual. Linda McManus’ “Memory Series” holds the intimacy and tenderness of personal memories and connections made to those people and places we once loved. And Terry Hull reminds us of the roots and foundation of photography in some of his stunning, original black and white photographs such as “Death Valley Floor”, a print made from a 5”x7” negative. Other artists represented in this show are Christopher Kennedy, Henry Rowan, Robyn Graham, Lynne Goldstein, Joe Marvullo and Mary Richardson Miller, who tells the story of Guatemalan women and children in her documentary of “The Women Of Candelaria”.
The exhibition is open to the public for self-guided tours during regular office hours, Monday through Friday, 9am to 4pm and all photographic work is for sale. This exhibition will remain on display through October 2016. Raymond James, 4 Caufield Place, Suite #101, Newtown, Pa 18940
“Adding rotating art exhibitions to the fabric of our daily workspace has not only supported our local art scene but has enriched our work environment, relaxed our workforce and inspired meaningful conversation between clients and staff members. The benefit is apparent and much appreciated by all of us. The art has brought color, inspiration and enjoyment to our daily activities.” says branch manager, Joe Allen.
