WICKECHEOKE CREEK 01, Diane Levell

Diane Levell has been creating wonderful images for decades. Using straight technique or alternative print processes, she has always kept the image itself in the forefront for viewer contemplation.

In my work I have consistently striven for a high level of craftsmanship and aesthetic quality. And I wanted to use the photographic medium to its fullest extent; “straight” black and white, color and the historic techniques of the pictorial school.

Now through May 31.

KHALIL STAFFORD TRAINS AMIRA, Jano Cohen

While boxing as a sport and art has receded from popular view, these events still taking place in local urban settings continue to provide a place for character building. Jano Cohen captures those special moments in a series that has a timeless, special quality about it.

The gym is a safe place for people of all ages to learn physical skills in a well-loved sport. In the gym I am documenting the evolution of the training of a boxer from childhood. Trainers keep in the game by passing on their knowledge.  I am observing how the gym operates as a community center and the intimate relationships between trainers and boxers.

Now through March 31.

Brighton Resident by Liam Sharp

Brighton Resident, Liam Sharp

Street photography requires an acquired skill and a refined approach in order to capture those real life moments with impact. Liam Sharp accomplishes this result with finesse.

The image I see when approaching is gone as soon as the subject becomes aware that they are being photographed.
What I am trying to do in this series of street images, taken in New York, is to try to capture what I actually see and feel when I encounter my subjects on the street. I cut a hole in the side of a cell phone case, where I insert my DXO camera and  walk the streets at a fast pace. I decide what I am going to photograph from a distance. As I pass the scene, without framing the shot, I try to capture what I have seen from a distance.

Now through February 28.

Conservatory by Allen Shifrin

Conservatory, Allen Shifrin

Black and White photography highlights a dramatic scene through the balance of light and shadow. Surround the same scene in the dark veil of night and the drama is further heightened.

This series of photographs reflects my interest in landscape photography, with an emphasis on the urban landscape.  The subject matter is the scene that unfolds at night, where composition is informed as much by shadow as by artifact.

Rorschach Girls by Mary Anne Mitchell

Rorchach Girls, Mary Anne Mitchell

Inspired by poetry, the images in this exhibition draw the viewer in to another world experience.

This series is inspired by my poem ‘Meet Me in My Dreams”.  The images are created using wet plate collodion. I scan and enlarge them to enhance the organic qualities of the medium. The work speaks to family, memory, and the ethereal passage of time.

The setting for many of the images is a fairytale landscape. My use of the young people celebrates the  universal feeling of limitless potential that most people experience in their youth.The ghostlike figures are reflections of the later years when beauty and youth begin to fade.  They suggest the feeling that one is beginning to disappear and yet still present and interacting in the scene.

Now through October 31.

013 Ancient Farming by Oliver Klink

Ancient Farming, Oliver Klink

One of our outstanding up and coming fine art photographers is West Coast resident Oliver Klink.

Oliver’s work has been published with National Geographic, Days of Japan, Black & White magazine, Popular Photography magazine, among others. In 2016, he was selected as Critical Mass Top 50 fine art photographer, “Best of the best” emerging fine art photographer by BWgallerist, and received People’s Choice award from Black and White Magazine single image contest. In 2014, his image “Herding Instinct” won the grand prize at the Rayko International Photo contest. Oliver is a master of the new digital printing process called Piezography. Originally from Switzerland, Oliver currently resides in Los Gatos, California with his wife.

“Consequences” addresses the current threats to natural and cultural diversity, sites where modernity, tradition, and wild lands collide. It is an elegy for what is vanishing and a celebration of those cultures resilient enough to maintain their vibrancy. As we drift toward a blandly amorphous, generic world, as cultures disappear and life becomes more uniform, we as a people and a species, and Earth itself, are deeply impoverished. The images take the viewer on a roller coaster ride of aesthetic of disappearance, with hope that the fading traditions are not permanent and irreversible.

Now through September 30.

Dunescape 04 by Matthew McIver

Dunescape 4, Matthew McIver

Dunescapes have a proud tradition in fine art photography. The beauty of a Weston print meanders through time to the inspired work of Matthew McIver.

You find silence in a desert. You find conversation in a crowd. A gathering is a place for distraction. A desert is a place without expectations.

Now through August 31.

Father, Aida, Michael Marks

On a visual journey through the ancient lands of Israel, Michael Marks captures the timeless personalities of the the current residents.

During several visits to Israel and the West Bank I endeavored to capture some of the differences in these two places, as well as the ironies that are seen in daily life.

Peter, Sideways by Claire Seidl

Peter, Sideways, Claire Seidl

Our friend Claire Seidl has a new exhibition online at RED Filter Gallery. Her artistic approach is captured below, but it is the mystery of her work that captures the viewer’s attention and imagination.

I shoot long exposures, ranging in time from a few minutes to several hours.  Being very conscious that I cannot see in the dark or hold an image in my mind’s eye once I change my focus or move my head, I rely on the camera’s greater abilities. I use film and develop and print in my darkroom. Because I am also a painter, darkroom work seems like printmaking or drawing to me.

Now through June 30.

Surf's Up by Christopher Kennedy

Surfs Up, Christopher Kennedy

Christopher Kennedy has followed a winding creative path to his destination in Photo Luminism. Here is a sampling from that journey of image making. It is exciting work by a talented artist.

Whether capturing a traditional subject that can be viewed by anyone or using my camera as brush and canvas to create a vision the human eye cannot see, the passion … is all consuming.
