Interesting interview with world renown gallerists, Catherine Edelman, about Art Photography…
In celebration of National Photography Month, this month’s LIVE Q&A takes you behind the scenes on a tour of MoMA’s collection storage, where many photographs are stored, followed by a Q&A with Sarah Meister on how curators choose which photographs to acquire and display. Submit your questions in advance in the comments below, and see you on Wednesday, May 23 at 3:00 p.m. EDT. Watch live: https://youtu.be/ZXB6F51xXyY
Read below for updates on our two exhibits now in process, as well as one planned for September. See what we have planned for our monthly meetings (as well as where!). Read about photography with SNAP and other artists around town, and other opportunities to submit entries. And don’t forget there are three ways to stay up to date with us: through email notices, our Facebook group, and our https://snapnashville.org website. See these details at the end of this month’s SNAP NOTES.
April: Sadly, our Frist Outing in late April had to be cancelled, but several were able to make it to the photography panel the next day, on Photography and Activism, with Keith Calhjoun, Chandra McCormick and Dr. Makeda Best moderated by Dr. Susan Edwards. See other photography happenings around town at the end of these notes.
May: Our joint meeting on May 1st sponsored by the Brentwood Photography Group and Dury’s featuring Sam Abel, a Cannon Explorer of Light, was pure inspiration. Thanks to Sue Henry, BPG president and S.N.A.P. member for organizing and inviting us. Perhaps his main message was “Compose and wait.”
June: We will reconvene on our regularly scheduled June 26 meeting to share “Before/After” photos. Everyone is encouraged to share 1-3 photos (at least one photo!), showing the photo(s) before any editing/processing, and after. You may send these in digitally to email@example.com, or bring prints. Your choice whether to bring before/after images you’re pleased with, or something you’re not entirely satisfied with (or a mix). Either way, we hope to learn from each other – tips, tricks, philosophies.
Time: Tuesday June 26, 6:30 – 8:00
Place: Stefan Engstrom’s Office. Education Networks of America: 618 Grassmere Park #12, Nashville, TN 37211 (https://goo.gl/maps/EAjfKo6HU312). This is an agreeably more centrally located spot, and we thank Stefan for making this possible.
April Meeting has been cancelled due to changes int he exhibits at the Frist Art Museum.

** First, as a member of the 2017 Periscope Class sponsored by the Arts and Business Council of Nashville – see https://www.abcnashville.org/periscope/. Deadline for this year’s class is fast approaching, and Richard can give us some insights into what he gained, and answer any questions.

founded by Wendy Whittemore.

Forget the plastic Christmas trees you saw at Walmart in July … the holidays are actually here! As such, our next meeting will be our holiday get-together, complete with a “Dirty Santa” photograph exchange. This also means we will NOT meet at Dury’s or at our usual time. Instead, see below…
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.
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. See http://vesnapavlovic.com/index.php?/photographs/
Sorry for the half-baked post this month, but I am traveling and wanted to get this out to everyone.
You can access the pdf of the meeting notes as prepared by Tom by clicking here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/0o0t9up963ml6v9/SNAP%2520PP%25202017-09.pdf?dl=0
Next meeting is Tuesday, September 26th, 6:30 pm at Durys as usual.
Guest will be Price Harrison.
IMHO our S.N.A.P. at J.C.C. 2017 exhibition is a great success. Our juror, Jerry Park made a fantastic selection of photographs (and why not, considering the truly outstanding work you submitted) and Carrie Mills curated and placed them in exactly the right place. For those who were not able to make it, our reception was the place to be (contrary to the opinion of Williamson Co. Fair, but we’ll let that go) with excellent attendance and fine food. Thanks again to Carrie and to Gerald, Wesley and all who brought wine.
