Perspectives Exhibition Change of Venue!

SNAP just got word from Provence that they are starting a major renovation the day after Thanksgiving, which means two very important things:
(1) All current artwork needs to be picked up immediately – or at the very latest, Wed November 22nd.
(2)  The cafe is going in a new direction, so SNAP won’t be able to show our work at this location.  The new Director of Operations for Provence said, “We are so grateful for the long-standing partnership we have had and all of the beautiful art and photography that has been displayed.”  We conveyed to her that we were also very appreciative of this partnership, of course.
Luckily we have an alternative venue for our Perspectives Show – the JCC will give us the long wall in the gallery where we did a push-pin show in 2016.  The show in the large gallery will compliment our show, and the space in the smaller gallery where we’ll have our photos will have TACA pieces, so should get a lot of traffic.  The show will just be up for the month of December.
Dates:
          * Pieces selected by juror to be delivered on December 1st by mid-morning
          * Artist reception:  December 6th
          * Pieces picked up:  End of the month
For 2018 we are actively searching for other venues.  Our arrangements may be different than what we enjoyed at Provence – but our goal is to still do 4 shows a year (including or in addition to the JCC annual show).  We may find multiple places that would give us a month or two, for example – We may find one great place just like Provence – who knows?  But we need your help.  Shoot any ideas you have to emily.passino@gmail.com and I’ll share with the planning committee.

SNAP Notes…

IMPORTANT: NEW EVENT

Sunday, April 24 is World Wide Pin Hole Photography Day! Our guest speakers for our Aprilpinhole
26 SNAP meeting, Denny Adcock and Gerald Figal have organized a pin hole shoot as part of this event. Interested persons meet on Sunday at the Carillon at the Bicentennial Mall around 1pm. There should be adequate parking in that area. Denny has a pin hole Nikon body cap he can loan and Gerald has a couple of cameras. Gerald is also willing to process and scan B/W film.

For details you can contact him: gerald.figal@gmail.com This should be an informative and fun shoot, so if you are just beginning your pin hole journey or are an old China hand, be sure to turn out. “At the meeting we’ll talk about what we shot, with emphasis on the variety of things one can do with a pinhole camera, things not easily done with lens cameras.” http://pinholeday.org/ Continue reading

1. How did you get started in photography?

I lived all my life in Los Angeles and Southern California until moving to a very small town in Wisconsin.  Shortly after arriving in Baraboo I realized even though my husband ran one of the biggest manufacturing plants in town, no one was really interested in me!.  This was something I was not used to, so I took myself off to the University of Wisconsin to see what I could find.  After trying many different art classes I found photography.  Wow!  It seemed like magic when the print would appear in the tray in the darkroom, and I still love seeing that today!
