Creative Hands Gallery presents, “The Photography of Maurine Sutter, Mark Chester, and Tom Noonan”Sunday September 10th -September 29thCreative Hands GalleryMaurine Sutter’s series, The Inflatables are photographs of giant beach toys taken at a store on the mid-Cape highway near Wellfleet. Featuring brilliant color and humorous titles, her work appeals to those of all ages and backgrounds in art appreciation.
Made with a unique hybrid process created by the artist, a combination of traditional wet-darkroom and digital techniques are used to make prints in limited editions. While embracing change in the medium of photography, she remains committed to making images in-camera without computer manipulation.
Sutter’s photographs are included in the permanent collections of The Cape Cod Museum of Art, The Provincetown Art Association & Museum and private collections both nationally and internationally.MARK CHESTER has been a professional photographer since nineteen & seventy two. He was Director of Photography and staff photographer at ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers), in New York City.

National museum and gallery exhibitions of his work, solo and group, include OK Harris and SoHo Photo (NYC); Camera Obscura (CO); the San Francisco Airport, and other venues. Chester is a Copley Artist of the Copley Society of Art in Boston.
His photographs also accompany his own travel articles as published by the L.A. Times, Boston Globe, St. Louis Post Dispatch, Chicago Tribune, San Francisco Chronicle, Washington Post, and Christian Science Monitor among other newspapers and special interest magazines.
His 1987 traveling exhibition and catalogue “Shanghai in Black and White” commemorated San Francisco’s Sister City as part of a cultural exchange program displayed at the Fort Lauderdale, FL, Museum of Art; The Sidwell Friends School, Washington, DC; and the San Francisco Main Library.Tom Noonan: “I first became interested in photography in high school. My skills and desire became more intense during the time I was in the service and purchased my first 35mm SLR. Having taught photography at the high school level and in combination with the introduction of digital, I have been reinvigorated again. Plus, with the added flexibility and creativity of Lightroom and Photoshop it allows visually creative photographers to explore new boundaries.
I have been a member of Upper Cape Camera Club for many years and attended the NECCC Conference for five years. I have judged and presented at many clubs on and off cape in the past few years.”
