Jim West—Summers in Europe

In the Main Gallery, August 5 – September 5, 2015

Jim West has had the opportunity to travel to Europe more than a dozen times over the last 25 years. During that time, he has built a body of work that has been published in many venues, has never taken the time to do a photography exhibition. The images in this Summers in Europe show represent his vision of what Europe feels like to him. They are an eclectic mix from many countries, including Italy, Greece, and France. As a photography educator, he uses these images to teach from and to share with his students as a tool to help them improve. Jim hopes that you enjoy these images as much as he enjoyed taking them.




Look, Listen, Learn: Images from Viewpoint Critiques

In the Step Up Gallery, August 5 – September 5, 2015

A photograph begins with the not so simple act of seeing, but the full realization of the creative process often involves looking at images more objectively and listening to the reactions and responses of fellow photographers – all with the desire to learn.

With the motivation to look, listen and learn, Viewpoint holds two open critiques each month, Print Night and Portfolio Night. The images in the Step Up exhibit were part of these monthly critique sessions. Some represent ongoing projects and are part of a cohesive portfolio. Others are individual images that reflect the photographer’s interest and variations in style. Thirteen local photographers are in the exhibit. Thematically, the work ranges from landscape to cityscape, figure studies, abstractions, photomontage, color, and black and white as digital prints and alternative photographic processes.
