Jerry Bowling is an old friend and a fabulous photographer. I own a copy of the Marcel Marceau image and I wish him well.

"Two of perhaps Bowling’s most successful examples of fortuitous celebrity encounters are featured at Q- Bar, both captured in Columbus. One is a profoundly engaging close-up of a 16-year-old Beverly D’Angelo, shot at an after-party on North High St. The other is a head shot of Marcel Marceau, donning a hooded fur coat and obscuring half his face with a promotional image of Bip, his theatrical alter-ego. Additional figurative works are on display, justifying Bowling’s early successes in fashion photography. Showcasing his range of interests, still-life, abstract, architecture and other genre are represented, all in all revealing over thirty years of personal experiences."
