Howard and Saxe To Exhibit Photos At the opening reception, June 5, 2:30-4 p.m. in the Speizman Galleries, Shalom Park, Jerry Howard and Allen B. Saxe greet guests and be happy to talk about their photographs. Both are avid amateur pho tographers and have lived in Charlotte about three years. Both are members of the Jew ish Conmiunity Center and have been affiliated with various educational insti tutions. . Jerry Howard came to Char lotte with his wife Helene, from Stonybrook, New York as a retired high school guidance counselor. The Howards quickly became in volved in the Charlotte com munity in general and in the Charlotte Jewish community in particular. Jerry is current ly Vice-President of Education at Temple Beth El V’Shalom. An imcle, Job Goodman, an art instructor at the New School in New York City, taught many of the famous such as Jackson Pollack. The program Mr. Goodman was af filiated with was part of the WPA artist’s project during the depression years. It was this imcle who aroused Jerry’s interest in art. Jerry has been taking photographs seriously for fif teen years. He commented on what he looks for and tries to attain in his photos: “What fascinates me most are build ings, design and shades of col or.” This is evident in his works from around the world — panorama to close-ups. He doesn’t use a tripod, just a steady hand and slow film to achieve his breathtaking re sults. Allen Saxe moved to Char lotte in 1985 from Florida and is married to Jessica Schorr Saxe. They have two children, Eddie and Kafia. Currently he is an instructor of urban studies at Johnson C. Smith University. As a member of Temple Israel, he and his fami ly are active in many phases of temple life. Allen’s interest in Judaism spans the ages from ancient observance to contem porary rituals. He is especial ly proud that he has taught a large group to blow the shofar; they perform simultaneously at Temple Israel services. Figure studies and por traiture are Allen’s specialty. The photographs he will be displaying at this time will be from a recent trip to Kenya. The clarity of the images and jewel-tone colors will amaze the viewer. Be sure to see the majestic peacock from a Kenya gcune reserve and the tribal “Masai” in full regalia. Children will especially enjoy the lions, zebras and giraffes. The reception and exhibi tion, sponsored by the Visual Arts Committee of The Foun- daticm, is open to all. The photographs will be on view through June 30 during Shalom Park operating hours. Some of the photos are avail able for purchase through the Jewish Community Cent^. In quiries are invited. Call the JCC office at 366-5007. —Ethel Gordon Happy Father’s Day
