Disrupted Realism: Paintings for a Distracted World

Written by John Seed, with Forward from Katherine Stanek, this book features the works of 33 artists from around the world. These highly accomplished artists, visionaries in a developing movement of great importance, explore with rawness and nuance the depths of human emotion and experience, communicating through paint the fragmentation of modern life.

Unforeseeable Thereness

Curated by artist Hollis Heichemer and presented by Stanek Gallery, "Unforeseeable Thereness" is a celebration of the lasting connection between Ireland and Philadelphia. Inspired by Heichemer's time at the Ballinglen Arts Foundation in Ballycastle, County Mayo, and the landscape, light and people of Ireland, this exhibition shares the fruits of years of exchange, travel, admiration and collaboration.

John E. Dowell Jr. | Photographic Evolution

John E. Dowell Jr., native Philadelphian and Professor Emeritus at the Tyler School of Art at Temple University, is not just a photographer, but an artist with a camera. Dowell captures both urban and agricultural environments, imbuing them with historic context and poetic content through digital processes of image manipulation. The body of work in this book reflects the evolution of Dowell's photographic practice, and investigates themes of spirituality, time and memory, rhythm and movement, and the relationship between the land and the history of our nation.

Julia Sidorskaya | a photographic journey

Odessa, the city by the sea, as seen by a photographer with a remarkable eye for beauty, Yulia Sidorskaya (July 22, 1980 - February 19, 2018), loved this world and left it far too soon.  This exhibition catalog captures images of passion and longing, solitude and the sense of passage of time, tenderness and profound philosophical reflection; all seen through the lens of an optimist who considered life as a unity.
