They say it will be fall any day now … and many of us will have our hands full with autumn photography. Be sure to leave yourself enough time to attend our October 24th meeting at Dury’s. We will be hearing from Michael Ray Knott, who will review his selections for our current Provence exhibition. Just look at his experience…I’m certainly looking forward to meeting him and hearing what he has to say.
I began my art career in Austin, Texas where I became a well-known poster artist. My work appears in a number of poster retrospectives from that era, including the book, The Art of Rock (1987, Abbeville Press). During my time in Austin, I studied photography under the legendary street photographer, Gerry Winogrand. I observed up-close how Winogrand worked and absorbed his philosophy of photography, which has greatly influenced my current work.
Wesley and Emily are holding a planning meeting to outline next year’s exhibits. All S.N.A.P. members are encouraged to attend with any suggestions for judges and/or themes…November 10 at Provence at 9:30.
Call for SNAP Submissions – Winter 2017|Theme “Perspective”
As a SNAP member, you are invited and encouraged to submit photos for our next Provence SNAP Photography Show.
Theme: PERSPECTIVE. For this show, perspective means “viewpoint” – a way of looking at or thinking about something. Strong photos will capture something a casual passerby may not see. Perhaps the vantage point is different, or the story told provokes a new way of considering something. Finding a unique way to point to a selected scene delivers a message to the viewers which the photographer directs.
Juror: The juror for this exhibit is V e s n a P a v l o v i ć, a Vanderbilt Associate Professor of Art who is astonishingly prolific and creative. She has exhibited widely in both solo and group exhibitions, and has work included in major private and public art collections, including the Phillips, the Hirschhorn and others around the world. Zeitgeist gallery here in Nashville represents her work.

“Above It All” – Lexus of Nashville October 5 until February 28
Art is all about perspective. One of its main purposes is to take its audience on a journey vastly different from their everyday reality.
From October 5 until February 28, Lexus of Nashville will be showcasing thirty photographic images of Middle Tennessee and the Smoky Mountains taken by members of Aerial Innovations of Tennessee, a Nashville-based aerial photography company founded by Wendy Whittemore. The photos are the result of the photographers feeding their creative sides between construction and real estate assignments for the company. “The art probably started before we ever took a photo for a client. Looking at the earth from above provides a whole other network of patterns and juxtapositions.
Above It All is at Lexus of Nashville, 2010 Rosa L. Parks Boulevard. For more information, visit www.flytenn.com.
Baldwin Gallery Exhibit extended
Constellation, the Fall 2017 exhibit at Baldwin Gallery featuring works from multiple photographers, has been extended until October 27.

Many take from or add to 20th-century methods for developing photos, such as platinum/palladium, hand-colored gelatin silver, wet plate collodion, kallitype, gum dichromate, resin printing, and contemporary pigment printing.
