Jessica Hagen Fine Art + Design is pleased to announce that From a Private Collection: Photos by E.A. Kahane will be on exhibit from June 23- July 16, 2017, with a reception for the artist on July 2, 2017. A born and raised New Yorker, Elizabeth Kahane, began a life long passion for photography at the age of 17, when handed a Pentax 35 millimeter camera as a gift. Self taught, camera at her side, Ms. Kahane is instinctively aware of the light and frames her view of the world one image at a time. Living across the street from New York City’s beloved Central Park for more than 25 years, the park holds a special place in her body of work and figures prominently in her show. From a Private Collection: Photos by E. A. Kahane, is comprised of the personal favorites of the artist; each image curated and created for private residences, under the supervision and direction of the artist using materials selected for that particular image. Until now, Ms. Kahane’s work has not been available to the general public except as a means of supporting charitable causes near to her heart. Gallery owner Jessica Hagen states, “It’s an honor to show Elizabeth’s work. She is a talented and creative photographer whose enthusiasm for artistic expression is evident not only in her photographs, but how she lives her life. It’s a beautiful and inspiring show.” 10% of the proceeds from the sale of E.A. Kahane’s work will be donated to the Newport Art Museum.
