Following the openings of Steve's show at the Etherton Gallery and Karen's at the Tucson Botanical Gardens, we headed for the west coast with the aim of continuing our photographic explorations of sand patterns, marine life in and out of tidepools, and rocks shaped by tide and wind. The majority of our time was spent at Montana de Oro State Park (near San Luis Obispo, CA) and Crystal Cove (near Laguna Beach). We've been increasingly drawn to Oregon and California beaches and challenged to capture the oft-times transient beauty of landscapes and tidepools responding to the rhythms of the tides.
Karen's solo show of works selected from her Illusions of Reality and Architectronics portfolios in the Porter Hall gallery has now ented at the Tucson Botanical Garden.
One of her 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.
Steve has a one person show of his Earth and Mars portfolio scheduled to run through October 18 at the Etherton Gallery space at the Temple of Music and Art, Tucson. 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.
One of Steve's landscape images is available for bid in the auction supporting the Photo Review in Philadelphia. The auction offerings can be viewed at http://www.photoreview.org/Auction/intro.php.
Karen and Steve will be attending a workshop in Santa Barbara on the Fine Art of Digital Printing during the last week of October. This workshop is conducted by John Paul Caponigro and Mac Holbert in labs at the Brooks Institute.
Karen's image, Warehouse, Marfa, TX, has been accepted for the Dreams show upcoming 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 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.
