In late October Karen and Steve attended a workshop in Santa Barbara on the Fine Art of Digital Printing during the last week of October. This workshop was conducted by John Paul Caponigro and R. Mac Holbert in digital imaging labs at the Brooks Institute. It provided a unique opportunity to interact with two 'masters' who shared their deep understanding of color calibration and print media. We both believe that over time, we'll be able to use the information and techniques gleaned at the workshop to better express the emotional feelings which underly our images.
One of Karen's images from the new series, Art and Nature, has been accepted into the upcoming Member's Juried exhibition at the Tubac Center for the Arts. That show will open on Friday, November 18 from 5 - 7pm at the Center.
Karen's image, Warehouse, Marfa, TX, has been accepted for a show with the theme of Dreams, at The Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, CO. The show will open on Dec. 2 and run through Jan. 7, 2012.
Steve's one person show of his Earth and Mars portfolio at the Etherton Gallery space at the Temple of Music and Art,has traveled northwestward to the gallery at Biosphere 2 this week. If you missed taking in the show during its tenure at the Etherton, we invite you to visit the Biosphere in Oracle. A preview of the show can be seen on the Etherton Gallery website.
In addition to the recent update of Karen's website, she has created a channel on YouTube that contains a set of movies intended to illustrate the thinking behind the composite images she constructs as part of her Architectronics series. You can view these movies by visiting YouTube and going to the channel karenmstrom.
In a few days, we depart for the Society of Photographic Education's Southwest Regional meeting in Santa Fe. We hope to use the occasion to reconnect with friends in Santa Fe and to make acquaintance with other artists in the mountain west.
Two of Karen's images, Fish Creek Wash I, right, and Lichen - Smith Rock State Park, OR, have been accepted for the Bridges exhibit running concurrently with the 2012 Joint Mathematics Meeting in Boston in early January. The show will open on Jan. 4 and run through Jan. 7, 2012.
Steve will have a retrospective show at the Verve Gallery in Santa Fe in October 2012 which will include the Earth/Mars images as well as a wider variety of both his recent and earlier work.
