Seeing Through the Lens: Viewpoint Photographic Art Center, features the work of 33 members of Sacramento’s Viewpoint Photographic Art Center. The public is invited to meet the artists and view their work at a FREE reception on Thursday, December 11, 2014, from 4 to 6 p.m. A wide range of photography highlighting diverse techniques, approaches and personal visions is featured.
Viewpoint Photographic Art Center is a nonprofit organization, which promotes the art of photography through exhibits of original photography by contemporary and historic photographers, lectures, workshops and educational programs. Though the Members’ Exhibit has shown a general shift from traditional to digital photographic techniques over the years, Viewpoint members continue to explore methods such as traditional black-and-white darkroom printing, alternative processes such as platinum/palladium and van dyke printing, hand coloring, digital compositing, and hybrid traditional/digital processes as methods for their creative expression through photography.
The City and County of Sacramento provide visual art experiences in public locations established the Art in Public Places Program. The SMUD Art Gallery is a partnership between the Sacramento Municipal Utility District and the Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission.
The Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission is devoted to supporting, promoting and advocating for the arts in the region.
