In conjunction with the Photolucida convention this weekend the gallery will also be presenting recent digital photographs by Susan Dimitman. These abstract photos are from images taken a Fort Stevens, WA.
Photolucida will be hosting an Artwalk from 5-7 PM this Saturday April 20th. We will be featuring Heidi Kirkpatrick and Susan Dimitman’s photographic work.
Susan’s exhibition also includes body of monotypes created at Crow’s Shadow Print Studio this past year. We will be having a reception for her work on First Thursday, May 2nd from 6-9 pm. The exhibit will remain up till June 15th.
Susan writes about her recent work: “…When the light is right and the image isolated, there’s a breathless, heart-quickening moment as the camera shutter snaps and my vision is captured. It’s a thrill that beckons for more. Photography is my first love, but these days I get the same joy of anticipation from a monotype rolling off the press. There it is—a unique picture, born of some subconscious feeling at that moment in time.
I’ve been making photographs for over 40 years, starting with black and white silver gelatin prints and moving on to digital giclée color on textured paper. Recent work at Crow’s Shadow Center for the Arts near Pendleton provided the alchemy for my recent prints.”
