“The Open Lens,” a Fall exhibit of local photographers’ work, will be the featured offering in Orcas Center galleries throughout November. Coordinated by the center’s Visual Arts Committee, the show will begin with a reception for the participating artists at 5:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 1. Dianne Kornberg, Obstruction Island artist/photographer, will lead an illustrated discussion on the ever-changing nature of the photographic medium.
The event is open to all camera enthusiasts, and will have a long run – through Dec. 3. Like previous such exhibits, it will offer pictures spanning a wide aesthetic and technical range, from landscapes and portraits to abstractions of various sorts.
Show participants are asked to bring their work – up to four photos – to the center the morning of Wednesday, Oct. 30, and (in case of wall-space limitations) indicate the order of preference in hanging.
Each work requires at least a simple frame, but nothing ornate or elaborate is expected.
For additional information on registration procedures, call Visual Arts Committee members Pat Littlewood, 360-376-3050, or Joe Floren, 360-376-5253.
