Old Business included an update on the move to Pavilion Arts Bell Tower, which has no internet and a less flexible cafe setting. Another option is moving to the first floor of the building where we now meet.
Current photography events include the following:
Christ Church Cathedral: Gallery South
Artists are invited to submit works of urban and rural landscapes in the Greater Cincinnati area that, through the intelligence and creative spirit of the photographer, showcase scenes that are typically overlooked or seen as mundane to the busy passerby.
CCAC invites artists to submit works that explore the theme of Third Place – third places are described as an anchor of community life such as a park, church, library, gallery, etc. This exhibition asks artists and viewers to consider both the literal, using and manipulating light through the use of photography, and the figurative, how third places enlighten us and encourage us to lighten up.
Xavier University Art Galleries
Light has the power to give meaning to anything and everything, presenting the photographer with infinite opportunities to capture images that evoke emotion. Light, whether natural or artificial, full, gradated or contrasted with its absence to reveal darkness must be felt by the photographer as well as the viewer. Artists are invited to submit up to five photographs that interpret the Light Matters theme of the exhibit – How will you make light visible for the 2020 FotoFocus Biennial?
Mike Rank did an informative presentation on adding impact to images through the HSL menu and handed out a helpful Pocket Guide To Mixing Color.
Since the judge did not show, Mark Buesing, Karen Kindness, and Glen Kindness presented the demonstration of the new PCGC website. Thank you for the many hours of work creating the new, much improved website!
