MFA Member John Henry “Jack” Turner
Born and raised in Annapolis, John Henry “Jack” Turner, son of classically trained Portraitist Moe Hanson, Jack acquired an eye for composition, light, and color, which is evident in his work.
In his passion to become a steward for the environment and his desire to foster a connection with nature, He travels the Chesapeake Bay searching for Eagles, Foxes, Shorebirds and more. His powerful images create an intimate connection with nature.

MFA Member Gayle Mangan Kassal
The BWI art gallery features works by artists from around the region; Maryland First Lady Yumi Hogan chaired the jury panel that selected the various artworks. I am very honored my work titled River Dance was selected. This pastel painting which is 39″ x 89”, was enlarged to 8 feet square. Located in Gallery D, between the D and E terminals, it is behind security. It is now up and will be hanging from July until December, then again on a rotating schedule with other works.
MFA Member Lee Goodwin
The BlackRock Center for the Arts has asked Goodwin to provide a photo for an exhibit celebrating the Center’s 15th anniversary. The photo they requested is Lock 7 in Fog, which is one of Goodwin’s favorites, but one that they rarely have an opportunity to show any more. It is a traditional gelatin silver darkroom print of a photo taken along the C&O Canal with a Mamiya 7 medium format camera, which was their main camera for years until they went digital. The exhibit will run from September 8 to October 12 at the BlackRock Center for the Arts in Germantown, MD. The BlackRock Center is a beautiful venue, and Goodwin had one of their first exhibits there in 2009 (Lock 7 was included in that exhibit). You can read Claudia Rousseau’s very kind review of that exhibit here: http://www.gazette.net/stories/05132009/entemon124147_32523.shtml
