The entry period for this very special exhibit is May 1 through July 29, 2018. The Exhibit will run from Sept. 4 through Oct. 6, 2018.

The Gladding, McBean & Co. factory, in the Placer County town of Lincoln, has operated continuously since 1875. Starting as a clay pipe manufacturer, “the pottery” soon expanded its product line and by the end of the 19th century was producing the architectural terra cotta that continues to ornament buildings in major cities across the U.S. and beyond. From 1987 to 2011, Gladding, McBean was the site of Feats of Clay, an annual ceramics exhibition that introduced thousands of visitors to the factory. Between 1996 and 2011, in workshops organized by Gene Kennedy, nearly 300 photographers explored, documented, and interpreted Gladding, McBean, a working factory as well as an icon of California’s industrial heritage. This juried exhibit celebrates that extraordinary opportunity and the photographic legacy it has given us.

 

 

Farrell Scott: Chefs Off Line

Exhibit Dates: 
Tuesday, Sep. 4 to Saturday, Oct. 6
Artist Reception (Member Event): 
Friday, Sep. 7 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm

There is nothing Farrell Scott loves more than capturing what happens behind the scenes to bring food to our tables. Whether it's documenting a busy kitchen or a working farm, she is only too happy to be in the middle of it all and seize the action. At the same time, when she’s in the studio creating a still life of a chocolate layer cake with ganache or a cheeseburger dripping with barbecue sauce, Scott has found how she communicates best with the world.

For the past several years, Scott has been working with a restaurant group designing their establishments from top to bottom. What she’s witnessed, time and time again, is the passion and full dedication of the people that bring beautiful, local food to the dining table. The story of their food is told repeatedly - just look at the millions of food images posted daily. But what’s their story? The Executive Chef that is an avid bow hunter, the Chef de Cuisine who has a wicked golf game or the Sous Chef that grows food and edible flowers. Scott wanted to find out about who was creating the amazing meals she was experiencing. Thus came about her first deep dive into portrait photography to bring you - Chefs Off Line.

Scott, a native of Sacramento, is a commercial photographer specializing in the art of food, agriculture and architecture. To challenge herself photographically, she enjoys exploring the waterways of Sacramento and Yolo creating night images any time of year while disregarding the weather.
