Just got word that Kerf International Gallery is holding their opening reception today, Friday from 6 – 8 pm ant their gallery in Wallingford Center:
Kerf International Gallery is pleased to present “Reciprocity – Depth and Light” an exhibition of selected works by eight local photographers.
Today with the ever-present camera, anyone can be a photographer and everyone is creating images. From the small details of everyday life to breaking news, more pictures are created in a single day then were ever captured on film. With so many images on the internet, computers and cellphones, we have to ask ourselves, “Why are we doing this?”
“Reciprocity – Depth and Light” attempts to look beyond the clutter and focus on a few thoughtful images.
Director David Felker is excited by the nature of the exploration in the new work, “The idea was to push the bounds of photography beyond the standard photograph into the idea of depth and light – exploring the “why” behind the photograph. The subject matter of this show is open to the interpretation of the artist and promises to be stimulating and exciting.”
The exhibit will be on display through October and features one very large photo produced by photographer Nancy Treder which is nine feet wide and 13 feet tall. “I was told once to make my favorite images big. So, I decided to make it life size because I loved it so much!”
The show opens with an artists’ reception including live music and refreshments from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Friday, September 18 at The Kerf International Gallery located on the main floor of the Wallingford Center, 1815 N. 45th Street., Seattle, Washington, 98103.
Featured artists are: Anthony Huss, Rob Legrand, Vanessa Palomino, Paige Selden, Sal Celis, Nancy Treder, Stephany Parrish, and David Felker. Music and song by Dr. Saraswati Sunindyo.
That’s Wallingford’s Nancy Treader lounging on one of her photos, getting ready for display.
