August Meeting Notes…

July Meeting and Key Upcoming Happenings

 Lively juror critique by two well respected photojournalists, Larry McCormack and Lacey Atkins regarding the Hotel Preston show “Sense of Place”. In addition to getting a glimpse into the duo’s thought process regarding their selections,  we laughed together at the end when they observed, “You all need help – you see a fog, and you can’t help yourselves…no matter time of day, hazards, you’ve got to grab your camera….”

In other news, Jen Vogus shared her 59 second video promoting her work in Williamson County teaching photography to students with disabilities transitioning from high school to adulthood.  Look for an announcement mid-month – First Tennessee Bank Foundation is giving sizeable grants to organizations with the most “popular” videos, to be released publicly mid-month.

October Meeting Notes…

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.

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. Continue reading

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.

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. Continue reading
