MICHAEL BERGER grew up near New York City. He studied chemistry at Cornell University and went on to obtain a doctorate in chemistry from Harvard University in 1972. Joining Polaroid Corporation in 1976, he used his technical expertise in the photographic field and holds ten patents. As one of the inventors of Polaroid Corporation's 35 mm instant slide film, he has had experience in blending art and science to create new imaging systems. For years Berger has used cameras and darkroom techniques to achieve impressionistic images, and he added the computer to his palette five years ago to achieve a new range of expression. Berger exhibits and lectures internationally on his art. He has recently completed a series of prints depicting scenes of Princeton.
JÖRG SCHMEISSER was born in Stolp, Pomerania in 1942, Schmeisser attended art school in Hamburg, Germany, and took his post-graduate work at the Fine Arts University of Kyoto, Japan. He moved to Canberra, Australia in 1978 to head the Printmaking Workshop of the Australian National University, Canberra School of Art. His work has been shown in more than 130 solo exhibitions world-wide and is represented in major private and public collections such as the Princeton University Graphic Arts Collection; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; National Gallery of Australia; Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris and the Kunsthalle, Hamburg.
ROBERT SAKSON, one of New Jerseys most accomplished watercolorists, is a Fellow of the American Watercolor Society and New Jersey Watercolor Society. Sakson has won major watercolor awards every year since 1970 and has exhibited extensively throughout the United States. The paintings of Historic Princeton shown in the current exhibit reflect the artists lifelong interest in and love of the history of the buildings and historic landmarks in his native state.
