In the Main Gallery, November 9 to December 3, 2016

Hans Gindlesberger's exhibit I’m in the Wrong Film is a consideration of our troubled relationship to the marginal places that exist in the national landscape. The title of the series is a colloquialism used to indicate a speaker’s disorientation in regard to physical surroundings that have taken on a disconcerting, fictitious quality. In this series of staged and performative photographs, the experience of individual dislocation the phrase describes is applied more broadly, in articulating the collective loss of identity that permeates the rural and post-industrial landscape of America.

Presented as a constellation of narrative fragments, each photograph manifests the shared psychology between a transient character and constructed environments suggestive of Middle America. The character, wandering with alternating senses of desire and reticent detachment amid his surroundings, is an extension of a place no longer able to sustain itself.

In the Step Up Gallery, November 9 to December 3, 2016

Saying “hola” (‘greetings’ in Spanish) causes your face muscles to move upward in an openly welcoming manner. “Baja” is the land of the beating sun where dust clings to your body like a cheap price sticker and the colors vibrate to distract you from the surrounding hardships. Ingrid Lundquist’s images capture the inner strength of the people as they go about their daily lives, under challenging circumstances, in a less than pristine environment. Hola Baja speaks to the rich texture of this land and the spirit of its people.

An Early Call for Entries—Picturing the Parkway: Celebrating the American River Parkway in Photographs

ENTRY PERIOD: May 1 to July 29, 2017

EXHIBIT DATES: September 2017

Viewpoint is announcing this open exhibition a year in advance to encourage all interested photographers to explore the richness of the American River Parkway in all seasons and weathers.

Considered the blueprint for urban parks across the U.S., the 4,900-acre American River Parkway extends along the Lower American River for 23 miles, from Folsom Dam to Discovery Park at the confluence with the Sacramento River. Combining conservation with scenic beauty, abundant wildlife, and a wide range of recreational opportunities, the Parkway hosts more than 5 million visitors annually. The Parkway also provides a wealth of photographic opportunities in all seasons of the year.

To celebrate this "jewel of the Sacramento region", Viewpoint Photographic Art Center is planning a major photographic exhibit in the autumn of 2017. Entitled Picturing the Parkway: Celebrating the American River Parkway in Photographs, the exhibit will feature a juried selection of photographs made within the American River Parkway. The exhibit is open to all photographers and all photographic techniques.

So get out there and start taking pictures! Details on the Call For Entries page.

As the only non-profit arts organization in the Sacramento region dedicated to advancing the art of photography through its services, education and gallery exhibits, we hope you will join us in celebrating this milestone.

So please join us as we celebrate the art of photography!
