The Annual New Member's Show

Exhibition: September 1 - October 2, 2022
Opening: Thursday, September 1, 6-8pm
Artist talk: Sunday, September 11, 2pm

 

Every year ViewPoint Gallery welcomes new exhibiting members with an exhibition that showcases their work. This year ViewPoint is excited and pleased to welcome Bernie Ewing, Jane Oram, Ron Pitts and James Rapaport.

Bernie Ewing enjoys photographing sweeping vistas of land and sea, portraits of critters and the tiny, often overlooked details of buds, bugs and butterflies.

 

Jane Oram is fascinated by the power of photography to evoke emotion and enhance our connection to people and nature. 

 

Ron Pitts makes wildlife photos and enjoy shooting action, creating images with a loose, painterly style – elements of soft focus, blur, grain and bokeh.

 

James Rapaport enjoys photographing landscapes and cityscapes, using advanced techniques to create natural looking results.

10am to Noon

Print reviews are open to the public! Bring your prints (any size, framed or not) for a review led by a Gallery Member. If you've ever wondered what others think of your work but were too shy to ask or always received the dreaded "It's nice" response, this is your opportunity. We hope to see you there!

While masking is no longer required, all participants are encouraged to wear masks during the print review, for the safety of all participating.

Used Words

Michael Eubanks (USA)

Artist Statement

I was cleaning my desk late one night and I noticed how the single light in the room reflected off an unsigned contract that was headed to the waste bin.  I began to play with the contract.  I rolled several pages and bound them together.  I began photographing the paper using a single LED torch as my light source. I tried several lighting angles, and liked this one the best.  After the photo session, I threw out the unsigned contract, but I kept this photo of "Used Words."

Biography

Mike Eubanks is a fine art photographer based in Fallston, Maryland in the USA. He moves from monochrome to color as the mood and scene dictate.  His work features subjects that are overlooked, forgotten, or slowly disappearing, and often explores humanity's relationship with our natural environment, and how it changes with evolving cultural norms. Mike's work has been featured in publications, exhibits, and galleries in the USA and abroad.
