Twenty-five photographers and photographic artists are featured in Riverfront Art Gallery’s 2018 Juried Fine Art Photography Show. If well studied, the 47 images in the show could instruct beginning photographers on time-honored techniques and approaches.
There are complex photomontage works, likeSuzanne Bean’s Escher Town. Paul Porter has recognized a potential image within a larger scene, inDichotomous, by isolating a small, high-contrast bit of sand dune.Ruth Smilan gives us a strong sense of place with her Gentleman’s Farm, with welcoming open gate and the fence meandering back to our visual destination. A few images have moody weather effects, and then there isDavid Aughenbaugh’s mesmerizing long exposure,Cochise Lightning, which captured multiple strikes. The sheer joy and beauty of light come through in Leslie Curchack’s reflection, Above & Below. Several images use distinct perspectives to somehow make the commonplace unique, as Francyne Kunkel has done with Sky-scraping.
This is just a small teaser in the hopes of enticing droves of people to enjoy this interesting show. Of course, Riverfront’s usual Invitational and member artists also have work on view.
The featured show runs from March 8 to May 6, with an opening reception from 5:00-8:00, Saturday, March 10, at Riverfront Art Gallery, 132 Petaluma Blvd. North, Petaluma. For more information on the gallery, please see the website: www.riverfrontartgallery.com. Closed Mon. & Tues.
