Asia was just accepted into the Art of the Flower exhibit at the Philadelphia Sketch Club. Stay tuned for more information.
Asia /asha/ Popinska is a native of Poland and a trained physiotherapist who moved to the United States in 1996. She practices Buddhist philosophy, through which a deep sense of altruism and sensitivity is reflected in her work.
As a self-taught photographer, she relies on intuition and instinct to capture those fleeting moments to tell stories through her lens. The photographs express her whimsical perception of nature and all the little things people can miss if they don't look close enough.

If you haven’t seen any of C.a. Shofed’s Reflection-ism pieces, catch a sneak peek of one of them at Hopewell Valley Vineyards at Laura Beard’s “Coming Together, Coming Apart” exhibit.
After moving to Trenton, NJ C.a. Shofed began to notice the vibrant art scene. He began volunteering at Artworks Trenton becoming highly involved in Art All Night. Sometime after his second kidney transplant he made the decision that he wasn’t going back to his 9 to 5, he was going to make art his career and become a Fine Arts Photographer. “I’ve been surrounded and supported by the best art community in the country here in Trenton. There is no better place then right here to start this chapter in my life”. It took C.a. awhile to find his “style”. “I became increasingly aware that my attention was drawn to ordinary objects pressured by nature and time. People began to be described my photography as “industrial meets nature”. I was enjoying finding beauty in things that are not naturally considered beautiful”.
I enjoy pushing the boundaries of photography with my camera. I’m not worried so much about the technical aspect and perfection of a picture. I more concerned with capturing a moment and sharing that moment with my audience.” More information about C.a. Shofed visit his website at amphorartworks.com
