Walker discusses her most recent project, Song for My Father: A Posthumous Collaboration, "a photo-based project rooted in the archives of her father Todd Walker’s 1950s career as an advertisement photographer". This project was shown in the dnj Gallery exhibition "Progression". The pieces can be seen upon request at the gallery.

dnj Gallery exhibition -- "Development"

"Dilettante" Review


Conatus II, 2019

Alice in Wonderland, 2013

Lunch Date with Mike Bailey Gates I, 2013

Diana, 1986

These dnj Gallery artists are exhibited in "Development" through July 6.

"The eponymous Development at dnj Gallery showcases clear artistic growth by the each of the exhibiting artists. The simplest demarcation of evolution in artistry is change as opposed to repeating a successful note over and over until the key breaks. Often times growth in itself is a challenge for artists who, upon finding their voice, lose the daring and impetus for new melodies. Genuine art is not concerned with evanescent anxieties which may sink the songs of novel and timeless beauty that are possible to be created in every phase of life. And this exhibition gladly demonstrates such courage to create."

dnj Gallery -- arts collaboration

Private screening of Oscar winning film:  


Private Screening with a conversation by dnj Gallery owner/director, Pamela Schoenberg, dnj Gallery artist, Suda House and one of the film's executive producers, Sophie Ascheim.

and a special presentation by Suda House, and her "Women Bleed" project.
"For the last year and a half I have been collecting images of women published on the front page of major newspapers. The criteria for my selection, was that these women and chil- dren must be in some kind of distress or suffering. ... So I chose the most private and personal of objects that women use when they bleed. I used a digital transfer process to apply these images onto sanitary napkins. My intent be- came to heighten the viewers’ awareness that women bleed [and suffer]."

dnj Gallery artist -- Ellen Cantor

is presented in the current exhibition  
Ellen Cantor examines light, time, and memory, and their combination through various junctures. She looks at colors, shape, and texture, as well as studying the passing of a period.  Her images display a flow, through beauty and awe that can only circulate through this kind of mixture.  Cantor begins considering the light, and how it changes within a certain phase (from morning to night, summer to winter, or one year to the next).  An investigation of the past (in a general purpose) and her personal history subsequently compliments this transition in time.  “By photographing and re-contextualizing precious memories, I have sought to understand how life proceeds, and then, ultimately disappears.  I document the artifacts of the past in order to enrich the present.”
