Fundraising Auction: Nov. 4, 6 to 9 p.m.
The annual auction of fine art photography is the centerpiece of Viewpoint’s fundraising efforts, enabling the organization to continue to build its outreach, education and exhibit programs. This year Viewpoint will feature over 50 photographers from its in-gallery portfolio program. Many of our portfolio artists are well-known and highly collectable with images sold in galleries throughout the country. The exhibit and auction will include an extensive selection, which highlights a variety of photographic styles.
All the images in the exhibit will be auctioned off on November 4th at an elegant affair including appetizers, luscious desserts, wine and beverages. The silent auction will begin at 7 p.m. and conclude by 8 p.m. Ticket are just $10 a person, so please invite all your friends and family—this is a night to celebrate our local photography artists and to support Viewpoint!
The Family of Mannequin is a group exhibit by members of “F/8”. These are some of our photographs of mannequins that are current or past residents of Continental Display, a business in Sacramento that sells used furnishings and paraphernalia from department stores and clothing shops that have either closed or replaced their old fixtures. Continental Display has mannequins—lots and lots of mannequins—retired now after years of service, or biding their time between jobs. The mannequins are waiting quietly (at least during the times we have seen them) for repairs and perhaps new homes. However, Continental Display will itself be closing this year, so the fate of the remaining mannequins is at best uncertain. Sadly, the demand for mannequins like these has diminished greatly in recent years.
F/8 is a group of photographers from Davis, Woodland, and Sacramento, formed in 2011. We spend a few quality hours together each month sharing our printed images and critiquing each other’s work, encouraging each other to be better photographers. We are also all members of the Viewpoint Photographic Art Center. The group and its members have participated in many group, solo, and juried photography exhibits and publications locally, nationally, and overseas.
Current and past F/8 members represented in The Family of Mannequin are: Joseph Finkleman, Rob Floerke, Richard Halliburton, Dennis McCoy, Tim Messick, Anne Miller, Michael Radin, David Robertson, and Rick York.
Viewpoint Gallery welcomes your creativity and craftsmanship! Balance is the theme of the 2017 Twelve exhibit, Viewpoint Gallery’s annual December juried show.
