LONG SHOT EXHIBITION

Photo Center NW
Below is the selection of images from Long Shot 2012!
Recently members of our growing mobile phone community met at the Washington Park Arboretum to take pictures on a Saturday afternoon with their iPhones and Androids. The theme of the day was ”nature and people in nature.” There were shooters from the @Igers_Seattle group as well as Photo Center NW. Thanks to all who came out and had a good time taking pictures and posting them on Instagram. New friends were made. New strangers were stalked.
All of the images can be seen on Instagram under the hashtags #pcnw_photowalk and #igers_seattle_arboretum. If you have an iPhone or Android and aren’t on Instagram yet – what are you waiting for? It’s a creative way to share your images in a thriving community. There are over 50 million users! We would be happy to show you how to download the free app and use it. Photo Center chose three images to feature from the day as well as a group shot.

Participating in this event is a great way to meet and network with curators, gallerists, editors, and share work with colleagues. Each registered photographer will have four (4) 20-minute review sessions to receive feedback and advice that is useful an artist’s development. A partial list of reviewers includes: Tracy Cilona (South Seattle Community College Art Gallery), Rachael Faust (Henry Art Gallery), Myles Haselhorst (Ampersand Gallery), W.M. Hunt (Curator, Collector, NY), Stephen Lyons (Platform Gallery), John Jenkins III (Decode Books Inc), Mariane Lenhardt (M.I.A. Gallery), Michelle Dunn Marsh, Ann Pallesen (Photo Center NW) and Claudia Vernia (G.Gibson Gallery). Stay tuned as other local curators and educators are added.

Join us for an artist lecture with Ken Rosenthal on Friday, July 13 at 6:30om. Rosenthal’s work explores the intersections of personal and collective memories, particularly as they relate to photography, and merges the autobiographical and the universal. His work is created from culled imagery from archives of family photographs as well as his personal work. The depictions are once true and fictitious, remembered and reconstructed, seen and not seen. Rosenthal will talk about the culmination of this work, his newly published book and his inspirations.
Ken Rosenthal received a MFA in photography from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1993. His artwork is represented in the US by Klompching Gallery, New York; Etherton Gallery, Tucson; and Gerald Peters Gallery, Santa Fe, among others. Rosenthal’s photographs are in many public and private collections internationally including The George Eastman House, Rochester, NY and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
