February Meeting To Be Held On February 5th With Corvallis Art Guild
By: Vicky Hollenbeck  on: Sat 20 of Jan., 2018 11:24 PST  (6 Reads)


February's Monthly Meeting will take place at 7 pm on Monday, February 5th at the First Congregational Church, located at 4515 W Hills Road in Corvallis. The program will feature Portland photographer Deb Stoner, whose specialty is botanical still-life photos. There will not be a meeting on our regularly-scheduled third Thursday in February.

In Deb's words:

In my lecture this February, I’ll talk about my career as an artist. I’ve cobbled together a life of part-time teaching, making art objects for others, designing eyewear for fashion industry, and running my business of being self-employed all under the name of “small artist at large” for over two decades. Photography has always been a part of it, but had been the part of my artistic practice that gets attention when I’m not too busy doing other things to earn a living. In the past five years, that has changed, with my full time commitment to making still life photographs of flora and tiny fauna. I’ll talk about all the work I did that led me through designing, making and teaching about eyewear, and then how it is to change directions to a different art form, photography, with complete serious intent, as an older person.

Denise and Walt in Lightbox Photographer Viewing Drawers
By: Rich Bergeman  on: Wed 05 of April, 2017 17:32 PDT  (881 Reads)
Congrats to Walt O'Brien and Denise Ross for landing their portfolios in the drawers at Lightbox Gallery in Astoria, where they will be available for viewing over the next 12 months. In April, their prints will be let out of the drawers for a month-long stint on the walls in the 2nd floor gallery. LightBox uses its eight portfolio drawers to honor the "complete photographer by recognizing those that pursue the art of fine printing." 

Walt's images are from his book: "Early Photography by Walt O'Brien 1960-1969", and the series of 10 prints in the drawers is entitled "Diverse Cultures: Encounters While Growing Up in the Texas Panhandle." Denise's prints are all from handmade film and printed on handmade silver gelatin paper. They are from her extended study of the Yaquina Lighthouse, which she says "began out of need for a convenient location to test handmade film and dry plates.  Over the years, it became much more than a "location" to me.  I fell in love with the moods of the headland, its wildlife, its structures, and the people who visit.  Going deep into one magical place has been reward beyond simply camera and materials."

LightBox Photographic Gallery and Fine Printing, is located at 1045 Marine Drive in Astoria and is open Tuesday - Saturday from 11 am - 5:30 pm. You can see Walt's and Denise's portfolios now through next April. Here's the website: http://lightbox-photographic.com

About the PhotoArts Guild
By: Rich Bergeman  on: Sat 17 of July, 2010 10:00 PDT  (12898 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.
