Artist Talks: Sage Sohier with Frank Yamrus
Friday, September 13, 2013 at 7:30 pm
Tickets available at door: $10 general | $5 students

Sage Sohier, About Face: Facial Paralysis: “Many of us find fault with our faces: vanity, aging and insecurities all take their toll on our self-image, and few of us achieve our notions of perfection; but, we have the luxury of taking for granted our ability to show emotion through control of our facial expressions. more»

Frank Yamrus: “In 2007, and after a short respite from taking pictures, I returned to my camera as a way to process my upcoming 50th birthday. My work always had an autobiographical persuasion but in this series I placed myself in the crosshairs of my own camera. Created over six years between my 47th and 53rd birthdays, I used life’s “big” moments— marriage, fatherhood and the loss of loved ones— as cornerstones to understanding my life’s decision but relied on the smaller moments— working in the yard or enjoying cotton candy— to help present a more congruous life. more»

Artist Talk by Sharon Harper
Introductory Presentation by Christina Seely
Friday, May 10, 2013 at 7:30 pm
Tickets: $10 General | $5 Students (available at the door)

Sharon Harper’s work jettisons this idea of the photograph as a seamless window to reality and replaces it with a magic mirror, a transformative surface that is capable of making the invisible visible and the intangible tactile. Her photographs, which often involve the sky as a test bed of human perception, have less to do with what we see than what we don’t see or, perhaps more accurately, what we want to see or try to see, but can’t.”
—Stephen Pinson, Curator of Photography at the New York Public Library

Christina Seely is a photographer and educator based in the San Francisco Bay area. She currently teaches at California College of the Arts in the photography, interdisciplinary and graduate programs.

Artist Talk by David Hilliard
Friday, January 20, 2012 at 7:30 pm
Admission: $10 general | $5 students with ID

“I continually aspire to represent the spaces we inhabit, relationships we create, and the objects with which we surround ourselves. I hope the messages the photographs deliver speak to the personal as well as the universal experience. I find the enduring power and the sheer ability of a photograph to express a thought, a moment, or an idea, to be the most powerful expression of myself, both as an artist, and as an individual.” –David Hilliard

About
“From dramatic panoramic sequences to evocative toy-like images, Philipp Scholz Rittermann‘s work spans the visual spectrum. He uses urban, industrial and natural landscapes as canvases to explore recurring themes in his surroundings.  An enduring theme in Rittermann’s work, beginning with his nocturnal images of urban landscapes from the early eighties, is the depiction of the passage of time. He continues this theme in his latest panoramic sequences which offer views so wide, they extend beyond what we can physically see with our own eyes. Through his images, we see beyond our senses.”
