Bronxite Ron Terner Celebrates 40th Anniversary of His City Island Gallery

26 Sep

Ron Terner, owner of Focal Point Gallery on City Island for the last 40 years, had an anniversary party starring his own new work a few weeks ago. I couldn’t make it to the opening but the next day my wife and I enjoyed looking at his work (see below), and chatting with Ron about that and more.

I’ve enjoyed Terner’s work since I first saw his photography — probably almost 20 years ago — and I learned a lot when I took his black-and-white printing class. When my wife and I got engaged 20 years ago, we bought a beautiful framed black-and-white photo of his in place of the traditional engagement ring. It’s still up on our living room wall.

Klein continues to explore various forms of art linked to his photography. Below are “photo collages transferred onto homemade canvas,” Terner says.

Go see this exhibit — as soon as you can. It ends 10/2. There is another “Artist Choice” show, from 10/3 to 10/31. (If you can submit your piece by 10/1 you can be in the exhibit.) For more details, check out this link.

Also, Ron was one of 40 phenomenal Bronx photographers who took part in the first-ever Bronx Artist Documentary Project, which is still showing at the Andrew Freedman home. (My dad, Jay Moss, a sculptor, was one of the Bronx artists photographed for this exhibit.)

All three of these artworks are by Ron Terner.
