AVA “Members’ Exhibition” 10/22

AVA Members’ Exhibition
October 8 – November 5, 2022
This group exhibition highlights the creative talent of AVA supporters and connects community-minded artists throughout the Columbia Pacific Region. Three Juror’s awards were given.

Excerpt from Juror Lucien Swerdloff’s statement: Christine Eagon’s “Lunch Counter” (pigment print) is a somewhat surreal, black and white photograph of a, not yet open, lonely diner, perhaps waiting for the morning (or lunch) crowd to come in, sit on the sleek stools and have a cup of coffee in a stainless steel, faux leather, subdued, people-less Hopperesque world. The image is both eerie and inviting at the same time. Full statement at https://astoriavisualarts.org/gallery-members-exhibition-102022

Kicking off the Arts Month festivities on Tuesday, October 5th, a new photography exhibition by the Inner Light Photographic Society will be featured at the Walters. The Look Up! exhibition is in essence about seeing. Historically, photography was considered a trick, or sorcery. However, we have come a long way since the first photograph of 1825. Unlike then, almost everyone today has some type of camera. Selfies, snapshots, and temporary imagery has presented opportunities to see the world through diverse eyes. And even though we can all take photos; it takes a specific act to see what is beyond the lens, capture intention, emotion, and feeling of any given moment. Individual Inner Light members have unique ways of seeing, reflected in diverse imagery and media and a wide range of photographic styles. Focusing on ‘looking up’ rather than focusing down or inward on viewing devices like cell phones, artists have captured unique moments around the world.
