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.
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. This exhibition, entitled Voices: Speaking with your Photographic Eye, will run from March 26 to April 26,2020, in conjunction with Sacramento Photography Month 2020, which is happening citywide throughout the month of April.
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.
