A statement from Amiri Baraka illustrates the goals of photographer Chuck Haupt and painter Glenda Blake: “The artist’s role is to raise the consciousness of the people. To make them understand life, the world and themselves more completely…” Says Blake, “I’ve begun painting from old family photographs in order to reflect my own memories and viewpoints of not only the people, but the times involved.”

Haupt says: “The show is a look back at my photography — from my Polaroid Swinger days, when family and schoolmates were my target, to an early trip to Europe and, more recently, to my deployments with the American Red Cross.”
