March 2017 Featured Photographer, Julie Bonney Show:  Delicate Beauty Julie Bonney is a widely traveled local photographer who will be sharing a selection from her recent work, “Delicate Beauty” during March 2017.  Favorite photography subjects for many are flowers.  They speak the language of the heart touching us in ways that open us to the natural world.  However, the challenge is to showcase them in ways that are less common and create a desire in the viewer to stop and take them in.  Photography workshops can be a source of inspiration when things feel stagnant.  To learn some new techniques, Julie participated in a flower photography workshop last September.  Using tulle, lace, optic choices, shallow depth of field, multiple exposures and more unusual angles of perspective she immersed herself in the joy of rekindling her love of floral photography.

NOVEMBER: COMPLEX: Photography by David Chambers

COMPLEX: David Chambers

Photographer David Chambers spent two months in Chile this summer, where he collaborated with University of Arizona researcher Sophia Borgias on a project about the Maipo River basin in the Santiago Metropolitan Region. This collection of photography explores some of the stories that emerged in the Maipo, as well as observations from his time in Santiago, Valparaiso, and San Pedro de Atacama. The hope is that these photos offer a glimpse of the complex beauty of the landscapes and people of Chile, a country living with the tensions left by a history of dictatorship, rapid economic growth, and mounting social pressures for change.

Home: Shelter and Habitat in Contemporary Art

Robert Minervini, One Percent Efficiency, 2013, acrylic on canvas, 48” x 72”

The Schneider Museum is Pleased to Announce its Premier Exhibition for 2014 Home: Shelter and Habitat in Contemporary Art Showing January 10 – March 15 For most of us home is a personalized place of comfort, privacy, and security. Inside its walls we create spaces that reflect who we are and what is important to us. We also take refuge and respite from the rest of the world in these enclosures, believing in the safety that four walls and a roof can offer. In Home: Shelter and Habitat in Contemporary Art, 28 artists have deconstructed their meanings of home and assembled their concepts through photography, painting, sculpture, and video. The result is engaging art that invites us to rethink our notions about the places we live. To sculptors Sasha Petrenko and Gina Tuzzi, home is not a fixed unit, but a nomadic dwelling that can be brought with us wherever we go. Ari Salomon’s photographs provide intimate views of the interior of his great aunt’s apartment where she lived for 30 years. In contrast, Henry Wessel’s photographs are taken from a voyeur’s perspective. His haunting exterior shots leave us to imagine […]
