Yesterday I wrote about having two images accepted into an exhibit at the Shoe Factory Art Co-op in Rochester, NY.  I’m excited to be going to the opening reception this evening.  This is a new venue for me and a couple of hours away from where I live.   I am interested to meet the other artists involved and see the community support.

When the SFAC has a call for artists they allow you to submit 2 images for that particular theme.  I knew right away that Entering was a good choice for the theme of Minimal Art but decided to look through my files and see if I have anything else that would work.

The Bow was taken when I was in Cape Cod for a class last year.  We headed to the waterfront to see what sorts of images could be made.  I don’t usually photograph the large scenes but look for details within.  I’m also always drawn to water reflections and liked the graphic nature of the lines that this boat created and the way it was reflected in the water.

The image right out of the camera was a good start


but it wasn’t exactly what I had in mind so with some fairly minimal editing in Photoshop, the final black and white version was created.

If you’re in the Rochester, NY area, check out the exhibit through November 2012 at the Shoe Factory Art Co-op.
