The ImageMakers: 20 Years of Creativity
Exhibition Dates: February 25 – April 2
The ImageMakers: 20 Years of Creativity is an exciting exhibition featuring the work of 45 photographers, all members of the talented ImageMakers group. These creative photographers are represented by one photograph each, compiling a group show with an incredibly diverse array of styles, techniques, and subject matter.
The ImageMakers was formed in April 1996 by a group of fine art photographers on the Monterey Peninsula, in Central California, who wanted to create a venue where they could exchange ideas about the rapidly evolving world of contemporary photography. They also wanted to review and discuss new work in progress by their fellow artists working in the field. From an initial group of six photographers, the ImageMakers has grown to an enthusiastic organization of over 60 members.
The members currently work in black and white as well as color. In addition, the traditional dark room, various digital, and alternative processes are used. Their work includes documentary, landscapes, portraits, underwater sea life, architecture, still life, graphic design, and a variety of other subjects. Some members are new to the art while others are long standing professionals. The group includes photographers who are instructors for UC Santa Cruz, Monterey Peninsula College, Cabrillo College and for a number of photographic workshops.
Join us for this innovative exhibition, and come away inspired by the range and breadth of these many aesthetic approaches to contemporary photography!
