Yep… that’s right! Wednesday, November 5th, 6:30 pm will be our last meeting of the year. We will have a year-end party in December so stay tuned!
The November meeting will include the election of 2015 Club Officers and sign up sheets for those interested in helping out in various aspects of the Club. Again, strong participation makes for a strong Club!
Also, this meeting is a Judged Salon. Photographer Cynthia Fleury will critique and score member images. Cynthia Fleury was raised in Grand Rapids Michigan close to the shores of Lake Michigan. She later moved to Milwaukee and studied art at the Minneapolis Institute of Art and Design in Milwaukee and at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee painting in oils and acrylics. She moved with her family in 1985 to Minneapolis and studied photography in 1998 at Minneapolis College of Art and Design.
While at MCAD, Cynthia grew to enjoy the artistic expression of photography. She built a chemical B&W and color darkroom that only lasted a few short years since digital photography became her preferred art form. She converted to digital in 2004. Her passion is experimental photography and creative processes and techniques such as infrared photography, light painting, digital hand coloring, composites, and digital painting. Her images consist of landscape, still life, travel, nature, and digital art.
Recent exhibitions have been in art and photography shows around the country and around the world. Most recently Cynthia has exhibited in shows at the Hopkins Center for the Arts; Bloomington Theater and Art Center; World Photographic Gala Awards Malaga, Spain; Viridian Artists Gallery (New York); NAWA Gallery (New York); New York Center for Photographic Arts; and Arts in Harmony in Elk River, MN.
Cynthia is currently the curator of and exhibitor in a show with 10 photographers from the Lens Prose Photographic group at the Phipps Center for the Arts “Altered Views: An Exploration of Photographic Processes, Techniques, Substrates and Presentation.” She is also a frequent contributor to Lake Superior Magazine.
Top scorers from all 2014 previous judged salons will be entered in our own Club’s year-end competition.
And the 2015 TCACCC Spring Break will be March 21st and 22nd at Century College in White Bear Lake. More info will be coming up as we get closer to the event.
