About

We are pleased to announce our upcoming solo exhibition of Sheila Metzner’s photographs at the gallery. The exhibition will open at the gallery with a reception for the artist from 6:00 pm until 8:00 pm on October 19, and she will be signing copies of her newest book "From Life" (Rizzoli).
_______

Sheila Metzner’s photographs are unmistakable; totally original and unique. In her fashion photographs and portraits, she creates an atmosphere of extreme elegance and refinement and at the same time they are sensual and romantic.
Objects, whether an Art Deco vase or metal sculpture, are imbued with character and beauty. Also memorable is her use of color – rich, deep and sumptuous. Every photograph tells a story of personal involvement and deeply felt emotion.

Sheila Metzner was born in Brooklyn and attended Pratt Institute on a scholarship. Her first job was in advertising for CBS and she then became the first female art director for the advertising agency Doyle Dane Bernbach. She married art director Jeffrey Metzner in 1968 and amazingly embarked on a career as a photographer while raising a family that eventually grew to five children.

As her career progressed, the advertising clients, Vogue pages, exhibitions, book contracts, awards and recognition poured in. With this exhibition and this month’s release of her new book “From Life” (Rizzoli), we see a life lived to the fullest – professionally and personally.
