SNAP Meeting Notes for August…

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.

SNAP Meeting Notes for July…

Summer… and lots of things going on this month. The submissions for our annual S.N.A.P. at JCC Exhibit are in; 138 photographs are vying for one of the 40 available positions in the show. The images have been sent to our juror, and participants should be getting the results soon, with enough time to print and frame their work in time to deliver them from hanging on August 1st.

Our speaker for the July S.N.A.P. meeting is our juror, Jerry Park, who will discuss his selections for the S.N.A.P. at JCC show. The meeting is as always, the 4th Tuesday of the month, 6:30 pm at Dury’s.

I began seriously pursuing photography in 2007 after a career in corporate America.  Landscapes were my first love and continue to be a frequent subject.  In addition, I’ve enjoyed building a portfolio of the interiors of all sorts of workspaces, from a shoe shine shop to Nashville’s water filtration plant, from a car seat recoverer to a pristine Purity Dairy, from an artist’s studio to the shop of a third-generation luthier.  I’m a member of several photography organizations, including SouthLight, a 6-member salon dedicated to growing and demonstrating that art is alive and well below the Mason-Dixon line.

SNAP Meeting Notes for June…

From Tom Keller, SNAP President:

What a lovely Spring…at least none of my plants have died (yet). This month we have an exciting, and, to me, different topic / speaker.

27ef868543abf9c4e16439c1aeb8f0bd

Martin O’Connor is a native Nashvillian whose photography began as a special interest then evolved into a full-time profession.  His photos have graced the pages of state and local organizations including Nashville Ballet, Chinese Arts Alliance of Nashville, Franklin School of Performing Arts, University School of Nashville, Middle Tennessee State University Dance and Theatre, Vanderbilt University, Governor’s School of the Arts, and The Dancer Project.

In 2008, he received the Dance Advocate Award from the Tennessee Association of Dance.  When presenting this award they noted  “… his stunning images illustrate both his passion for the art form and the beauty of the art.  His eye for detail and compassionate spirit make him a popular photographer for dancers to work with”.

SNAP Notes…

May’s Meeting Speaker: Jack Spencer!

Fantastic news! Our guest for the May 23rd S.N.A.P. meeting is (drum-roll) … JACK SPENCER, well known and internationally exhibited Nashville photography artist.

This Land

Nashville Scene had this to say about him: “A prolific fine art photographer who’s had over 80 solo shows and exhibited in just about every major American city, Spencer creates images both stark and lush, though nearly all share a haunting mysticism, a sense that each moment holds secrets far beyond what our narrow minds typically perceive.”

April Meeting Notes…

S.N.A.P. at Provence Cafe

Spring is sprung, the grass is riz…and so have the photographs in our “Night” exhibition at Provence. Again, I am blown away by the quality and variety of images in the show. Be sure to be there for the Reception next Thursday, April 20 to see the show and talk with the artists.

The juror for this exhibit is Heather Lose, a creative director and fine art photographer who helped co-found the Nashville Community Darkroom and, more recently, WXNA 101.5 FM. She will be discussing the photographs she selected for the exhibit at our next meeting at Dury’s, Tuesday, April 25 beginning at 6:30. See you there!

Our March meeting was a real treat…a field trip to the Frist Center for the Visual Arts to see the Irving Penn exhibit. Those who have seen it are complimentary of the quality and content of the show. If you haven’t seen it yet, this is an exhibit you shouldn’t miss. It remains until May 29.

March Meeting at the Frist…

IMPORTANT REMINDER: The March meeting of S.N.A.P. is a field trip to the Frist Center for a tour of the Irving Penn exhibit. We will NOT meet at Dury’s on Tuesday. Instead, we will assemble near the information booth in the Frist no later than 6:45 pm on the evening of March 30. The cost for the tour will be $10.00 ($9.00 for seniors) for non-Frist members. Parking is separate.

So far, only six people plus myself have confirmed for this event, but I expect we will have the minimum necessary for our scheduled tour. Please check in with me so I can collect the fee from non-Frist members and to make sure of our number for our total group.

I have heard this is an excellent exhibit and I’m looking forward to seeing all of you then.

SNAP Notes…

Hi, SNAPpers! I hope everyone is taking advantage of the spring-like weather to get out and shoot. At our last meeting Byron Jorjorian spoke on his approach to photographing nature in all its forms. Thanks, Byron for a great presentation.

Harlequin_Dress-429x450

Our March meeting should be a real treat…a field trip to the Frist Center for the Visual Arts to see the Irving Penn exhibit. Unfortunately our member docent, Susan Striepe, is in the process of completing her thesis and is not working with the Frist center this semester. That means I will be scheduling the tour and handling the finances (Oh, boy!).

February SNAP Notes…

Next Meeting:

Winter, at least what passes for it around here, proceeds. Personally, I shot as much, or more, during this time of year than in the summer. For a transplanted Yankee, southern summers are like northern winters: a time to stay in climate controlled environs. Since now and during the upcoming Spring is a good time for nature photography, our speaker this month is Byron Jorjorian.

jor

http://www.byronjorjorian.com/

“Fine art photographer, Byron Jorjorian has been capturing the natural world on film for over 30 years. He is considered by many to be one of the nation’s premier fine art nature photographers. With over 400,000 images in his files, his photographs have appeared on nationally published greeting cards, calendars, magazines, posters, murals, fine art prints, brochures, and advertising. Byron has had over 12,000 images published and more than 22,000 prints installed comprising more than 1,200 projects in various markets worldwide.”

Byron will be discussing his approach to photographing at our February meeting, Tuesday, 28th, at Dury’s, 6:30 pm. We all owe a big thank you to Dury’s and their staff for providing this facility for our meeting.

October Notes…

Next Meeting:

Due to Emily Passino’s efforts, SNAP now has a meeting place while Dury’s moves to their new home. For our upcoming October 25 meeting (and November 22, if we need it), we will meet here:
Belmont United Methodist Church
2007 Acklen Avenue / PO Box 120098
Nashville, Tennessee 37212

Emily says: They are giving us Room #25. Best entrance is across from the community center on the side. Could be parking available in the back lot next to the side entrance… look for the signage for directions to Room #25 (Thanks to Jo for the design and printing).

The Topic for the meeting will be: “Slow Shutter”

An important tool for creative photography is the use of the “slow shutter”. Extending exposure time results in a variety of visual effects and the ability to shoot in otherwise difficult situations. To help us explore this corner of our craft, we will be hearing from S.N.A.P. veterans, (and recognized Fine Art Photographers) Denny Adcock and Stanton Tubb. They will discuss technical concerns and techniques and show how they are resolved in their own work.
If you have any “slow shutter” work you would like to show / discuss, this is a good meeting to bring it along. Or, if you have any questions or ideas in this area, Denny and Stanton will be glad to respond during their presentation.

 

Dury’s New Location:

Dury’s will open October 24 at their new location, 1027 Murfreesboro Pike, Nashville, TN 37217.

 

Provence Exhibit:

provence

Update from Emily about the next Provence exhibit…

Details are still being worked out to accommodate both the juror and Provence. But with time ticking by we wanted you all to know that it’s likely to be a very short time-frame mainly so we can take advantage of Christmas in the village. So! Start deciding now which 4 gorgeous shots you’d like to submit that respond to the theme, “photos inspired by art.”

Don’t over think this one! It could be a painterly shot or a shot reminiscent of a particular artistic style or period, or a shot composed in along the lines of classic principles, or…. maybe artists at work, or museum goers, or your version of abstract or geometric works. As we’ve been reminded, visual art shares so many perspectives, regardless of the medium. This exercise should make for good conversation too as we explore what each other is thinking as we make our selections and then see how a museum director views it all. Plus , during holidays, what we produce may find not just an appreciative audience but some people who might actually purchase things!
Hopefully we’ll get this all squared away soon. Look for official call by next week. But start thinking now, because we won’t have a lot of time to pull it off.

 

Local Exhibits:

Not much to announce by way of photography exhibits or events this month. The “Tranquility” exhibit continues at Chromatics until January 12. If you have not seen the show, check it out as it includes a number of S.N.A.P. member’s work.

The Tinney Contemporary continues it’s exhibition of David Yarrow’s Wild Encounters through October 29.

“His unusual angles are the result of hours of research and elaborate planning, as well as countless trials and errors in the field. For Yarrow, photography is about active nature rather than passive observation, often creating a feeling of being sometimes unsettlingly close to the animal. African elephants tower, lions stare into the camera, tigers look up from the water, and rhinoceroses charge straight at the camera.”

September SNAP Notes…

Next Meeting, New Location!

Due to Emily Passino’s efforts, SNAP now has a meeting place while Dury’s moves to their new home.

For September 27 and October 25 (and November 22, if we need it), we will meet here:

Room 124 Belmont United Methodist Church 2007 Acklen Avenue / PO Box 120098 Nashville, Tennessee 37212 

Emily says:  Best entrance is across from the community center on the side. Could be parking available in the back lot next to the side entrance. Certainly for this first meeting we’ll need some volunteers to arrive early and post signs and/or direct people to the meeting room and get it all set up. And Jo Fields has offered to make directional signs and to contribute the voluntary fee…Thank you Jo.

Our meeting this month will again be the popular ‘group critique’ in which we each bring 3-4 prints of projects on which we are currently working. After time for general viewing, we will briefly discuss our project and open it up for Q&A (critique) from the members. Depending on how many decide to participate, each person will have 10-15 minutes (?) So gather up your prints (don’t need to be mounted) and brush up on the Artists Statement (doesn’t need to be formal) about your project.

It would be useful if you would let me, Tom Keller, know that you are planning to participate, but if you decide to at the last minute, that’s OK too.

SNAP Notes for August…

 

Our next exhibition, “Inspired by the Cinema”, is ready for installation at Provence! The block information for those participating is due TODAY, so if you are a procrastinator, you only have a few hours to whip up an excuse J Tomorrow, Monday, is the day for taking down photographs in the “Patterns” Exhibit and hanging the “Cinema” pictures. Wesley will be there 1:00 – 6:00 and I plan to be there to help…If you would like to assist as well for all or part of that time, please drop in.

Artist’s Reception is Tuesday, August 9, 5:00 – 7:00 pm. Emily has called for volunteers to help promote both the show and reception on social media and by designing and/or producing cards, lobby fliers and posters (for the Belcourt Theatre), etc. Also, donations of wine (a couple of boxes), plastic cups and name tags will be greatly appreciated.

Our August meeting will NOT be at Dury’s … instead, we will be holding a Juror’s Critique on August 23, 5:30 – 7:00 at Provence. This time, we have asked Zak, our judge, to specifically discuss each piece as well as to make some general statements about pictures he did not select.

Juror Criteria

At our July meeting, Emily Passino discussed SNAP’s Juror Criteria. Emily, Wesley and “the Gray Beards” exchanged emails on this topic and came to the following conclusion: Jurors will be asked to rank all submissions, from 1 to ___, with the cut-off for accepting works at the space available. We felt that being an “artistic society”, we should rely completely on the selections of our guest judges. Having said so, we firmly believe the membership should be engaged in this kind of decision, so, If you have a view of this policy you would like to have discussed, please contact me, Emily or Wesley and we will schedule monthly meeting time for a general discussion.

Member Recognition

Also at the July meeting we recognized several members. Monte Arnold and Bill Lund; both have sold photographs from the “Patterns” Exhibit. (Please see the attachment). In addition Richard Barrow has a piece in “America’s Parks: A Centennial Celebration” at the Sangre de Cristo Arts and Conference Center, Pueble, CO (www.sdc-arts.org) AND has been chosen to hang a show at Nashville International Airport next year. Finally, Jerry Atnip and Jane Vickers participated in DiaLoGue / Manipulated Photography at the David Lusk Gallery (http://www.davidluskgallery.com/). Way to go, guys! If you have any photographic accomplishments to share with us, please let me know for inclusión in our meetings and newsletter.

June is becoming a great month for SNAP! It began with hanging our 5th Annual Juried Exhibition at Gordon Jewish Community Center along with the revival of our “Push-Pin” show in the small gallery. Many thanks to Paul Polycarpou for judging the submissions, to Carrie Mills for curating and to Kay Ramming and Denny Adcock for organizing the Push-Pin show.

Our 5th Annual Juried Exhibition and our Push-Pin Show are both up at Gordon JCC and they look great! Thanks to all the photographers who participated, and especially to those who helped hang the shows. A special “Tip of the Hat” goes to Kay and Denny for their work in getting the Push-Pin show organized and hung. The shows will be up until the end of the month. Don’t forget to visit both galleries to see the shows.

Our next  SNAP meeting on June 28 will assemble at the JCC at 6:30 where our juror for the exhibition, PAUL POLYCARPOU, will conduct a critique of the work. Paul is always an entertaining, as well as a highly knowledgeable, presenter. This critique should be of interest, not only to the participants, but to all Nashville area photographers.

Meeting Notes…

(Cover Image by Gerald Figal)

Pinhole Photography…

First, there was the workshop / shoot at Centennial Park last Sunday; Denney under the weather, but Gerald brought a bunch of film cameras w/ pin holes and we shot for a couple of hours. (Gerald was also kind enough to do the processing and scanning for us.)

At our meeting last night they discussed some of the theory and history of pinhole photography, and Gerald discussed some of his own work as well as some that members brought in…a very enjoyable and informative event.
