Nov./Dec. Photography Show 

When: Sundays. Continues through Dec. 29
Artist’s Statement: My first camera was a Brownie pinhole that I got when I was 10. My parents drove to Palm Springs and on the way, we stopped at an overlook. I saw the pattern of the smooth, black road winding down the mountain, dipping, curving, disappearing, and reappearing amidst the rugged desert landscape. It looked cool. It was more than a road. I took my first picture. I still have it. Since then, I have had a decades-long intense relationship with photography. My images hope to speak to that need to see more of what is: from opulent feathers, to mystical stone, to a solitude. We are metaphoric beings. The way we see our surroundings helps us to develop and convey an inner sense of deep and meaningful mystery. Author Joan Didion speaks of the importance of acknowledging the “shimmer” around objects--that glimmer of a different, deeper meaning, and she describes an artistic quest to discover its inner “grammar.” Like Didion, I look for the magic in the world’s elements to try and find the “grammar in the shimmer.”
