The Performing Arts Center at Sussex County Community College will host The Black Maria Film Festival on Saturday, February 24, 2018 at 7:00 p.m.

Since 1981, the annual Black Maria Film and Video Festival has taken its name from that of the world’s first motion picture studio built by Thomas Edison here in New Jersey in 1893. The festival’s annual competition of short-format, under an hour, videos and film is juried by noted supporters of independent work and results in 40 to 60 works chosen for the festival’s annual tour which visits 65 diverse institutions in 20 states. This presentation is approximately two and a half hours long, including question and answer periods and a short break.

Tickets will be available at the door for $5 or free for current students with an SCCC ID.

Douglas Petersen’s Art Exhibit at SCCC

in Home Page, Performing Arts Box

Sussex County Community College Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of photography by Douglas Petersen. There will be an opening reception on Friday, February 16 at 5:00 pm in SCCC’s Art Gallery and will remain on display until March 9. This exhibit displays Petersen’s documentation of the face of New York on one particular corner, 58th Street and 5th Avenue, between the years 1985 and 1986.  The scene is viewed as reflections in a fashion store window, imposing the image of the background on the mannequins in the display.  The pictures, made over thirty years ago, have become an artistic document of the time in which they were made.  The pictures have also been sequenced and published in the book 1985 from Deerfield Editions.

Douglas Petersen received his BS degree in Chemical Engineering from Syracuse University in 1969. After a period of employment in industry, he established a commercial photography business in 1979 specializing in architectural and industrial documentation for corporate and professional clients.  An intensive study of photographic science and history followed, augmented by private study with the artists Scott Hyde and Harold Feinstein.

The Last Light of Day, a book of his pictures of the Delaware River landscape was published in 1997.  In 1999, he completed a two-year project photographing for the book Public Sculpture in New Jersey in collaboration with the writer Meredith Bzdak, published by Rutgers University Press.  In 2003, he and the photographer Dorota Bakalus began work on a project documenting the 19th century military fortifications at Przemysl, Poland.  Fortress, the book resulting from this project was published in December 2007 by Deerfield Editions.

Petersen’s photographs have been seen in numerous solo exhibits over the last twenty years, notably at The Center of Culture and Science in Przemyśl, Poland, Shtooka Gallery, New York, NY, Skulski Gallery, Clark, NJ, Blair Academy, Blairstown, NJ, Sussex County Community College, Newton, NJ, The Perkins Center for the Arts, Moorestown, NJ and The Montclair Art Museum, Montclair, NJ.

Douglas Petersen is Adjunct Professor of Art at Sussex County Community College in Newton, New Jersey where he teaches courses in photography and the history of photography.
