Phil Coleman, Herman Krieger, Mark Meyer and Dave McIntire are among 47 photographers from around the state who were juried into a touring photography exhibit called “Cascadia: Where Oregon Meets,” which opens at the Crossroads Carnegie Art Center in Baker City on April 6. The exhibit, which will visit Corvallis this summer, is an effort to “bring an ever-divided state of Oregon closer together through the lens of photographers, both urban and rural,” according to Crossroads Director Ginger Savage, who spearheaded the project.

The inaugural exhibit at Crossroads will run through April 28, with a reception and awards ceremony scheduled for Friday April 6 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Eleven of the 47 exhibiting photographers will be awarded cash prizes ranging from $500 for Best of Show and People's Choice to $100 for Honorable Mention. The exhibit includes black-and-white and color photographs depicting the varied landscapes and people of Oregon from the Coast to the Snake River and from the Columbia Gorge to Klamath Falls. The 48 photographs in the show were juried from 166 entries from around the state. PAG member Shelley Curtis served as one of the two jurors for the show, and Rich Bergeman served as one of three award judges. The project was underwritten by the Ford Family Foundation of Roseburg, Ore.

After Baker City the exhibit will be on display at The Dalles-Wasco County Public Library in The Dalles May 4 - 31, and then at the LaSells Stewart Center on the Oregon State University campus in Corvallis from July 2 to Aug. 5.

The Crossroads Carnegie Art Center is located at 2020 Auburn Ave. in Baker City, Oregon; www.crossroads-arts.org. Gallery hours are 10am-5pm, Monday-Saturday.

About the PhotoArts Guild
By: Rich Bergeman  on: Sat 17 of July, 2010 10:00 PDT  (13422 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.
