Dreams Exhibition at Center for Fine Art Photography
Exhibition Dates: November 4 - 26, 2016
Reception: Friday, November 11, 6 - 8PM

Dreams connect the space between real and surreal.  They derive from fragments of our stream of consciousness.  Our life’s memories, our desires, and our fears reshuffle and play-back in visions that may appear obscured by double-vision, or be crystalized by a hyper-real clarity.  Often, they exist with the support of an uncanny logic or disjointed symbolism.  Whether hopeful or menacing, dreams pull on the strings of our most raw and primal emotions.

2016 Krappy Kamera Exhibition

Opening Reception: Tuesday, March 1, 6 - 8PM
Exhibition Dates: March 2 - April 2, 2016

New York, NY-Soho Photo Gallery’s March show will feature the winning entries from the 18th International Krappy Kamera Competition, work by the gallery’s members, as well as photography by Jennifer Shaw.  The Krappy Kamera Competition originated at Soho and is one of the high points of the year.

Susan Burnstine, an award winning fine art and commercial photographer, was the competition’s juror, judging images captured with krappy kameras including Holgas, Dianas and homemade cameras.

“In today’s digitally driven world, manufactured perfection tends to be the norm. But in the world of “krappy” plastic and pinhole cameras, the lack of technical control allows for unforeseen imperfections such as light leaks, vignettes and blurs that can transform what may have been an average image into something spectacular.”

The exhibition Working the Land: Arizona Farming and Ranching Families features four local artists: Scott T. Baxter, Gina DeGideo, Jay Dusard, and Jill Ison, all making contemporary photographic work of farming and ranching families and individuals still working in Arizona.

Whether it is through the viewpoint of their own family life, documenting others, or from conversations with historical photographs, each artist has worked closely for years with the people in the photographs to show a dynamic look at their lives, rarely seen by the common passerby.

Alternative Cameras: Pinholes to Plastic

Alternative Cameras: Pinholes to Plastic

Exhibition Dates: December 22, 2015 - January 15, 2016
Juror: Susan Burnstine

Often perfection is a direct result of embracing imperfection. The term “happy accident” has become synonymous with wildly flawed alternative approaches including toy, pinhole and homemade photography, as they frequently rely on elements of chance and luck. But there have been some who have tamed these unpredictable, faulty beasts to yield purely poetic results by letting go of technical control and connecting with their inner photographic child. 

It was great joy to spend time with these wonderfully imperfect images and I applaud everyone who submitted. Having to narrow down a selection for the physical and online exhibits was an immense but gratifying task. In the end, the selected images seamlessly merged consistent aptitude with an element of unpredictable chance, thus creating lyrical results. I congratulate all the selected artists and sincerely thank everyone who submitted such fantastically flawed work.

Fund Raising to Support Community Programs
Over the past year Art Intersection presented nine public exhibitions in the North and South Galleries showing work from student, emerging, and internationally known artists. To support these programs, we work with our artist community to present the Off the Wall exhibition where all of the artwork is donated and for sale in a silent auction format.

Sales from Off the Wall keep the exhibitions in the North and South galleries free and open to the public, and support community programs such as the Emerge student photography exhibition and our artist in residence program.

Exhibition
During the five-week exhibition, please visit the North and South Galleries to view Off the Wall, which features the artwork of established, and emerging artists. An online gallery of the exhibition makes it easy to review the artwork.

Silent Auction
Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to bid on your favorite artwork(s) and take it off the wall for your own collection or as a unique gift for someone special in your life.

You can bid on the artwork(s) that caught your eye throughout the exhibition, or use buy-it-now. The final silent auction bidding happens Saturday, December 6, 6 to 9pm.

Bids may be made in person, in the gallery, or by email beginning November 1, 2014. Email bids will be accepted until midnight December 5, 2014. An online gallery, viewable on November 1, will list the “Buy-It-Now” price allowing you to purchase an auction item anytime prior to the auction evening on December 6.

Have you ever wanted an enlarged negative for your alternative photographic process art? Does the process to create a digital negative adjustment curve sound too complicated? If you answered yes, then join us for a presentation on creating a digital negative curve. As my kids said when they needed help with their homework, just give me the answer without all the boring technical stuff.

This lecture illustrates creating a Photoshop curve to adjust a digital camera image to make a digital negative suitable for contact printing a gelatin silver (black and white) print. This same process can be followed for any alternative photographic processes that use a negative.

A History of Fresh Food in the Desert

Jeremy Rowe
Gina DeGideo
Heather Gill

An exhibition of images relating to agriculture and food raised in Arizona.

“A History…,” as its name implies, spans the cultivation of food in the state of Arizona. Jeremy Rowe‘s early 20th century, pre-industrial archival images reflect the first taste of stable life in the area. Led by animals and simple machines, these hazy early shots illustrate a simpler time, barely rising above subsistence in laying the foundation for Arizona’s future growth. Gina DeGideo‘s images arrive from the collection of Howard Morrison, continuing the legacy of Marvin Morrison‘s family farm, which brought with it the more factory-oriented, large-scale work of Arizona’s rapidly changing agricultural base, in the middle of the 20th century, concurrent with the state’s suburban explosion. Finally, Heather Gill‘s crystal-clear shots offer a closer look at what food means to Arizona’s present. Gill’s work connects the dots, and shows how, even today, the planting, harvesting, and preparation of food remains integral to the character of the state.
