April SPS Member Update...

From: SPS President - Greg C.
Sent on: Tuesday, April 9, 2019 4:21 PM


Hello SPS Members …..
I wanted to take this opportunity to follow-up our April SPS meeting last Friday and thank all who attended. Especially John Marina, who presented and judged our images.

Hopefully you can join John at the Booth Museum in Cartersville on June 20thto see the new Digital Art Exhibit that he has put together with many fine digital artists.

Here is the Booth Museum Announcement:

Artistic Photography Today: Artists Re-Presenting Reality & Scene: Photographs by Jeannette Montgomery Barron June 13 – September 1, 2019

Guest curator and artist, John Mariana gathers a unique group of prints to explore the limits of photography in the digital age. John says, “Photographic Artists make Photographic Art, not take them, shoot them, capture them or snap them. They see the world differently and then show others how they see and feel the real world. The final artistic print is their representation of the world through their eyes, mind, heart and creative artistic talents. The tools of the craft are a camera and a lens but the print is result of their artistic vision.”

Photographs by Barron will serve as a primer featuring images from Warhols’ time in the spotlight as we move closer to opening Warhol and the West.
