Ten Eyes is a group of Sacramento women photographers who began meeting monthly in 1983 to show new work and to critique each other’s work with the goal to grow as photographic artists. Originally five in number (hence the name Ten Eyes) the group has grown to include more women who share a passion for creating photographic art. Informal in nature, the monthly meetings are also opportunities to share information and experiences on all matters photographic. A passion for and committed support of the art of photography are the underlying elements that bind the group together.
The members of the group strongly support each other’s creative explorations and individual artistic development. The group celebrates the women of Ten Eyes’ distinct styles and approaches to photography. While some work in black and white and in color, hand coloring and alternative processes are also mediums of choice. All have incorporated digital processes into their workflow.
Ten Eyes – Independent Expressions is a collection of small portfolios of new work from each member. While the images shown in this exhibit illustrate the group’s individual interests and styles, independence of expression is the group’s underlying common theme.
As individuals, all of the women of Ten Eyes have shown widely in solo shows, group shows, and juried competitions, both in Northern California and nationally. All have won awards and recognition for their work.
