Past Time, by Diane Tempest
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:
Judith Monroe is a mixed media artist whose photographic background includes traditional and alternative processes. Inspired by nature and her faith, Monroe incorporates painting, drawing, coloring, textures, found objects, words, and even small structures into her evocative photographic studies. “I find beauty in things that seem commonplace,” she explains.
Monroe is also a photographic educator who teaches both analog and digital methods. As an educator, she is accustomed to viewing and understanding a wide range of ideas historic and current approaches. She knows the importance of craft to deliver the photographer’s vision.
