Briarcrest Welcomes Karen Pulfer Focht As Our Artist In Residency At Sparks Chapel Gallery January 21 - March 20
Our Artist In Residency program continues as we welcome photojournalist Karen Pulfer Focht to the Sparks Chapel Gallery January 21st through March 20th. Originally from Chicago, where she began her career, Ms. Focht quickly became a nationally recognized photojournalist. She has spent twenty-six years as a staff photographer at The Commercial Appeal and now works as a freelance photojournalistand contract photographer. Her work has won many awards due to her amazing ability to tell a story with a single photograph. Her images have the power to evoke profound emotion with simplistic clarity. Possibly her most recognized photo worldwide is the mother and baby giraffe below.
Please stop by the gallery anytime during the next two months to see the world as you've never seen it before. For more information about Ms. Focht, please visit http://www.karenpulferfocht.com/. She is speaking to classes on Monday, January 26th all day. Parents are invited to stop by the High School Art room and meet Ms. Focht.
