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/
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. Continue reading
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.
Here are the details for our next Provence SNAP Photography Show:
Theme: WORK. Again, let your imagination roll!
Juror: The juror for this exhibit is Michael Ray Nott (http://www.michaelraynott.com/ ), noted for outstanding graphic black & white Street Photography. Nott has studied under Gerry Winogrand, and has a design and cultural sensibility that should make this upcoming exhibit very rich. Continue reading
SNAP would like to invite each of you to submit entries for our annual JCC show, to be held at the Gordon Jewish Community Center (http://www.nashvillejcc.org/) on Percy Warner Blvd during the month of August. This is traditionally the major exhibition for SNAP each year, so we want to encourage everyone to participate.
Theme: There is no “theme” for this show, but the JCC can reject photos with images of full frontal nudity, violent subject matter, and religious symbolism. They are looking for “family friendly” images. Past shows have highlighted a broad variety of subjects and styles.
Juror: The juror for this exhibit is Jerry Park (http://jerryparkphotography.com ), who many SNAP members know. Park is a founding member of the SouthLight Salon, and featured at The Arts Company. Continue reading
