White's ‘Small Towns, Black Lives' exhibit documents New Jersey’s small, historically African American towns and settlements in the state’s southernmost counties. His 'Schools for the Colored' portfolio provides a continuation of his journey through the African American landscape.
Currently a resident of Galloway New Jersey, Wendel White was born in Newark and grew up in New York, Pennsylvania, and the Garden State. He has a BFA in photography from the School of Visual Arts in New York and an MFA in photography from the University of Texas at Austin. Presently, White is a Distinguished Professor of Art at The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey.
Mr. White has received various awards and fellowships including a John Simon Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship in Photography, two artist fellowships from the New Jersey State Council for the Arts, a photography grant from the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts, and a New Works Photography Fellowship from En Foco Inc. His work is represented in museum and corporate collections.
We are thrilled to feature Mr. White’s exhibit at Drumthwacket this Spring!
