PAG's 10th Biennial Exhibit Honors State of Oregon and Oregon State
By: Rich Bergeman  on: Wed 01 of Nov., 2017 18:18 PDT  (51 Reads)
“For the Love of Oregon,” the guild's celebration of the state and OSU's contributions to it, will be exhibited at the LaSells Stewart Center, 26th and Western, from Nov. 3 to Dec. 8, 2017. A reception and announcement of judge's choice awards will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 8, from 6:30-8:30 p.m.

The show commemorates OSU's 150th anniversary as a Land Grant Institution by focusing on the beauty and diversity that make Oregon special, and calling attention to the many ways in which OSU enhances the lives of its citizens through its research, education and extension programs. The more than 80 black-and-white and color photographs in the show depict a wide variety of subjects familiar to Oregonians: rolling wheat fields and hill-side vineyards, crashing waves and soaring bridges, snow-covered rangelands and ancient forests, counter-culture fairs and political protests. This is the 10th in the PAG's series of biennial expositions at the LaSells Center that explore the photogenic possibilities in their own backyard and beyond.

The LaSells Center is open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and evenings during scheduled events.

Denise and Walt in Lightbox Photographer Viewing Drawers
By: Rich Bergeman  on: Wed 05 of April, 2017 17:32 PDT  (691 Reads)
Congrats to Walt O'Brien and Denise Ross for landing their portfolios in the drawers at Lightbox Gallery in Astoria, where they will be available for viewing over the next 12 months. In April, their prints will be let out of the drawers for a month-long stint on the walls in the 2nd floor gallery. LightBox uses its eight portfolio drawers to honor the "complete photographer by recognizing those that pursue the art of fine printing." 

Walt's images are from his book: "Early Photography by Walt O'Brien 1960-1969", and the series of 10 prints in the drawers is entitled "Diverse Cultures: Encounters While Growing Up in the Texas Panhandle." Denise's prints are all from handmade film and printed on handmade silver gelatin paper. They are from her extended study of the Yaquina Lighthouse, which she says "began out of need for a convenient location to test handmade film and dry plates.  Over the years, it became much more than a "location" to me.  I fell in love with the moods of the headland, its wildlife, its structures, and the people who visit.  Going deep into one magical place has been reward beyond simply camera and materials."

LightBox Photographic Gallery and Fine Printing, is located at 1045 Marine Drive in Astoria and is open Tuesday - Saturday from 11 am - 5:30 pm. You can see Walt's and Denise's portfolios now through next April. Here's the website: http://lightbox-photographic.com

About the PhotoArts Guild
By: Rich Bergeman  on: Sat 17 of July, 2010 10:00 PDT  (12670 Reads)
The PhotoArts Guild was born back in 1985 when five local photographers gathered at a local restaurant to critique photographs, share information and encourage each other's growth as image makers. It soon grew to about 20 members, and in 1988 the group became an affiliated guild with the Corvallis Art Center. Currently about 40-50 photographers belong to the PAG. Meetings are held monthly on the third Thursday of every month (except August and December) at 7pm in the OSU Center for the Humanities on 8th and Jefferson.
