“Italy: Close Up” Exhibit at Twisted Fish Gallery thru May 25

Italy, which is known for its iconic art, fashion, food and architecture could be intimidating to the novice photographer. How do you capture something so well known from a new prospective? How do you find a fresh angle to tell a different story? Local photographers, Kathie Carpenter, Marilyn Hoogstraten, Kathy Silbernagle, and Babs Young set out to explore these answers. They have returned with a show that not only grabs the color and flavor of Italy, but illustrates how photographers make crucial choices in framing, depth of field, and context when capturing a scene. Join us for not only a creative taste of this beautiful country, but also a discussion of how the photographers crafted their images into the art that is, ITALY: CLOSE UP!

Also, join us May 25th from 2 to 5 pm when artist and photographer William Sievert will lead a discussion on “The Origins of Street Photography.” As the most widely practiced art form in the world, street photography is a powerful tool used by people the world over to show fascinating experiences and people. Sievert’s talk will explore street photography through the practices of four iconic photographers: August Sanders, Lisette Model, Diane Arbus, and Vivian Maier.

This complimentary presentation is open to everyone and we hope you will join us.


Italy: Close Up will be on exhibit in the Cottage Gallery thru May 25, 2019.
