Theresa King's photographs were on view in the Important Women Photographers Exhibition at the Audart Gallery. The exhibition was a collaboration between The National Organization For Women in New York City and Westbeth Gallery and was curated by Jacqueline Taylor Basker, Director of Westbeth at the time. Theresa's photographs were loved and enjoyed by Audart visitors.
Ms. King's work has also been shown at the Judson Galleries and at Westbeth, New York.
Theresa King's range of artistic involvement is wide. She studied acting at The Neighborhood Playhouse and The Actors Studio with Lee Strasberg and was a member of the Judson Theater Group for seven years. She was invited to photograph the Merce Cunningham Dance Company. The New York Performing Arts Library at Lincoln Center purchased thirty of her photographs of the Merce Cunningham Company for their permanent collection. Some of these were exhibited in a show at the library in 1992. In 1998 her photographs of the Viola Farber Dance Company were purchased by Lincoln Center and Sarah Lawrence College. Her other dance collections include dancer Dan Wagoner and the dancer/choreographer/director James Waring. She has been published in Dance and Theater Magazines and the European Edition of Dance Magazine.
Ms. King's interest in the dramatic seasons of Northern New England led her to become involved in animal and environmental photography. In New York City she has established "Fur Faces", an animal photography business that evolved from her love and respect for nature and animals. She captures animal expressions and movement with sensitivity and humor. She is published in various animal and nature magazines and has appeared on television discussing this work.
Her work "Variations" is included in a major European exhibition, sponsored by Fundacio Antoni Tapies, Barcelona, Spain. The exhibit celebrates the last fifty years of Merce Cunningham's career.
