This month Viewpoint dedicates the Main Gallery to three artists and their solo series:
Juliet Haas’ Marionettes and Other Ghosts of Vision reflects a vintage noir aesthetic with saturation of color and realism in a modern digital capture.
Jing Lin’s series Solitary showcases nature in a innocent yet fragile grayscale landscape.
Michael Kelly-Dewitt photographs his subjects in a high resolution digital process complete with portraits, nature, and architecture.
In summer 2018, I began asking friends, family and other participants to choose a few objects that they live with and that are special in some way: sentimental, frequently used or just interesting looking. I tried not to give them too much direction so that the participant had total control over the objects to be photographed. I then shot the objects in the room in which they exist. The backgrounds remain consistent in that the object is on a solid surface with a blank wall behind but they change in color and texture due to the style of the room. The photographs are put into grids based on common characteristics of the owners or the objects themselves.
2018 Twelve Exhibit
Visual & Verbal is the theme of the 11th annual juried show, TWELVE. Visual & Verbal focuses on the relationship of words to pictures, specifically to photographs. These two realms, visual and verbal, come from different portions of our brains and obviously have different roles in communication. But they are partners. The exhibit Twelve: Visual & Verbal explores that complex and stimulating partnership.
The photographic subject matter and methods are wide open, limitless. However, words should accompany photographic entries in one or both of the following ways:
Viewpoint welcomes your concepts, creativity and craftsmanship in interpreting the theme, Visual & Verbal. Any subject and photographic approach is invited for this juried open call exhibit.
1st Place – $312
2nd Place – $212
3rd Place – $112
Three Honorable Mentions – Viewpoint Workshop valued at $95.
