PhotoZone Gallery’s 28th Annual Juried Photography Exhibition is now up at the Emerald Art Center in Springfield. This year's edition includes 10 prints by PhotoArts Guild members Dave McIntire, Phil Coleman, Rich Bergeman, John Ritchie and Jim Magruder. Two photographs by Phil were awarded Juror's Choice awards, and another Juror's Choice went to a print by Dave. The exhibit runs through July 29th at the EAC, which is located at Fifth and Main streets in downtown Springfield. A reception and awards presentation ceremony are planned for Friday July 8 from 5-8pm.

PhotoZone is one of the oldest photography groups in the state, and their long-running annual juried show provides a venue for fine art photographers from across Oregon to display their work. According to the show's program: "All work submitted for exhibition each year is reviewed by members of the gallery. Graphic design, light and color, tonality, image power, originality and technical quality of each piece are considered. This year out of a total of 89 photographs submitted, 67 were accepted, representing 42 photographers."

By: Rich Bergeman  on: Sun 26 of June, 2016 10:04 PDT  (64 Reads)
Phil Coleman, Jim Magruder, Jack Larson and John Morris have work in the new show at the Majestic Theater on 2nd Street in downtown Corvallis during the month of July. The botanical themed art show is called 'Art•boretum' and is part of the Majestic's series of community themed shows. It runs from June 30 through Aug. 1, with a reception on Thursday, July 21, from 5-8pm during the monthly Corvallis Art Walk. According the the exhibit curator: "For centuries, plant-life has captured the hearts and minds of artists. Flora has been used as symbols, decorative elements, and subjects of masterpieces. During the month of July, we turn our attention to the green lives that grow all around us. We call upon local artists to help us turn our gallery into a botanical art garden."

About the PhotoArts Guild
By: Rich Bergeman  on: Sat 17 of July, 2010 10:00 PDT  (10763 Reads)
The PhotoArts Guild was born back in 1985 when five local photographers gathered at a local restaurant to critique photographs, share information and encourage each other's growth as image makers. It soon grew to about 20 members, and in 1988 the group became an affiliated guild with the Corvallis Art Center. Currently about 40-50 photographers belong to the PAG. Meetings are held monthly on the third Thursday of every month (except August and December) at 7pm in the OSU Center for the Humanities on 8th and Jefferson.
