“I do this stuff for fun.”
Hal Wilson has a lot of respect for talented artists who take their work seriously and dedicate themselves to their art. But this guy is NOT serious. He is, however, DEDICATED.
Read on ...You'll see.
At the end of a day after paying the bills, walking the dog, and sharing a meal (presumably NOT with the dog) Hal starts looking forward to a little quiet time later in the evening. If he can fight off the fatigue there's a chance that he'll find himself browsing through some old photographs – often from the millions available online through the Library of Congress.
When something looks interesting, he'll bookmark it. There are a lot of interesting images out there! Maybe it's an intelligent looking giraffe … or maybe an intelligent looking cowboy … (well, it COULD happen!). Somehow, that sleepy feeling is gone. He will start cutting and pasting bits and pieces of those images until a new composition emerges.
Traveling was always part of her life, and when her husband’s occupation made it possible for them to live abroad, her travel photography opportunities expanded. Armed with her camera and a ready smile, Cecilia ventured out on her own to explore her new surroundings.
Since 2007, she has lived in Republic of Georgia, Egypt, Tajikistan, Macedonia, Ukraine, Moldova, Serbia, Kyrgyzstan, and in April 2019 a short return to North Macedonia (formerly known as Macedonia or the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM)). In total, she has set foot on all continents and made photographs in more than 78 countries plus Transnistria* a “country” that no other country recognizes.
This year’s fine art photography exhibit includes a number of rare and valuable prints as well as newer works by regional artists.
Some of the prints have been in Viewpoint's collection for years, donated by the original photographers and rarely make an appearance except for special occasions such as this. The exhibit presents a unique opportunity to view a wide range of fine art photography spanning over 50 years.
A closing auction for this exhibit will take place on Sat. Nov. 2nd from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Advance bids will be accepted during the run of the exhibit and may be made at the gallery.
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.

Viewpoint Photographic Art Center invites all college and high school students of photography to submit photographs for an exhibition hosted by Viewpoint and the Crocker Art Museum.

VOICES: SPEAKING WITH YOUR PHOTOGRAPHIC EYE
Photographs capture a moment in time, speaking about everything from the quality of light, the action, or stillness of the moment, to telling a story. It is your perspective on that moment. And at the same time it can be the story from another person's experience. Whether you are interested in the work of photographers such as Ansel Adams and Galen Rowell, or street photographers such as Danny Lyon, Louis Stettner, Dorthea Lange and many other documentarians, or Annie Leibovitz and Cindy Sherman who create whole characters, there is a voice that speaks to you in the images you are drawn to study. As you approach making an image or images to submit, think about what you want to convey to the viewers, what story do you want them to see? Use your creative imagination as you think about what you want to photograph and what you choose to submit to this Call for Entries.
