JUNE Featured Speaker Presentation By
Don Beck
Fine Art Photographer
WEDNESDAY, June 16th, 7-9 PM

Don Beck has been exposing his vision to film for 30 plus years. Shooting in the ‘70’s with his first 35 mm Nikon and Canon cameras, he experimented on his own with camera mechanics and film quality, resulting in unusual and surprising images. Encouraged by these early results, he focused on nuances of light, shape, texture and color, chasing graphic images and found objects in the natural world. The discovery of the GiclĂ©e printing process has enhanced the painterly quality of his work and created a long pursued “bridge” between painting and photography, resulting with the sponsorship of solo shows by the Fine Art Department at the University of Art in San Francisco, California. He has also had numerous solo and group shows in California and Hawaii where attendees, photographers and artists describe his images as being “painted with a camera.”

AOPR Exhibit at the Point Post Office

As you may know April is Shelter Animal Month and the Post Office will soon be releasing a new stamp series depicting furry forever friends.

The current AOPR exhibit at the PO windows happily coordinates with this event.

The window in the forground (to the right of the door) contains art by Jane Croston while Susan Shore's is on the left. Both artists' works celebrate canine companions. Stop by and take a look through the end of May.

The top photo was taken by David Moore of Sincere Design. Thanks David!
