The Thomas Teich Photographic Arts Gallery is an elegant, comfortable 700 square-foot space built next to the darkroom at our Freehold location. It is a studio gallery designed to showcase the latest photographic work as it emerges from the darkroom. Built in the main section of our restored 1850's era barn, it retains many of the original details like post and beam-mortar and tenon construction held together by hand-carved wooden pegs.
Open Thursday through Sunday from April 15th to December 31st, the gallery showcases the ongoing photographic work of Thomas Teich with a series of theme-driven exhibitions throughout the year as well as a variety of gift items like folios, calendars, posters, and fine notecards.
Unlike many contemporary galleries, which now use warm tungsten halogen or LED domestic lighting, we have invested in lighting by SoLux, a premier manufacturer of high-quality, full-spectrum lighting used in major museums throughout the world. This light imparts no artificial color to the prints and retains their sharpness and contrast for the best looking presentation possible.
Most importantly, we have gone to great lengths to create a quiet, personal space for visitors to view and enjoy fine black and white photography. Trading the traditional gallery white walls and noisy hardwood floors for darker, soothing colors and soft carpet underfoot recreates the sensation of walking through a quiet forest.
