Through the Student Lens 2014

Current Show Runs Through Saturday, April 19


Join Us!! April 4th is First Friday Gallery Night  


The current exhibit is Through the Student Lens 2014, our fifth annual show of photographs by area high school students. Each school collaborated  to select ten photographs of their student work. Sixteen schools are participating. The exhibit gives the students the opportunity to display their classroom learning and artistic talents in a true gallery setting with the opportunity for sales as a potential additional reward. The Gallery Partners chose BOCES-EMCC school for the grand prize award in the exhibit. Congratulations to all of the students and teachers for their production of a fine exhibit of photographs! We also very much appreciate the contributions to the exhibit by Michael Hager, Museum Photographics, who printed the student photographs, and Jason Campbel, Frameworks of Rochester, who mounted the photographs for display.

Guest Photographers for this show are David Ridley and Hank Shaw, with Bruce Bozman who is in the East Gallery. The Camera Rochester exhibit has competition-winning photographs by Archie Curry, Patti Kocinski, David Kotok, Sheila Nelson, David Schroeder, and Dave Valvo
We round out the show with Artists-in-Residence and Gallery Partners Dick Bennett, Carl Crumley, Steve Levinson, Gil Maker, Don Menges, Jim Patton, David Perlman, Dan Neuberger, Betsy Phillips, Gary Thompson, Phyllis Thompson, and Sheridan Vincent.
Click here for a link to the details as well as a list of all 16 participating high schools and a preview of images in the show. The exhibit runs through Saturday, April 19. The Gallery will be closed on Easter Sunday, April 20. There is no admission fee at Image City and is accessible to all.

Image City Critiques: Wednesday, April 2 at 7pm
The Critique Group will meet again on Wednesday, April 2nd at 7:00 pm. The assignment for April is to shoot images within the boundaries of Alexander St. on the west; Culver Rd. on the east; Park Ave. on the south; and East Ave. on the north. Within those boundaries you are to send 4-5 images you have taken. You can shoot inside or outside. Landscape; cityscape; street photography; architecture; macro; flowers; salt & pepper shakers... any topic you want. BUT... you MUST stay within the boundaries. For instance, you can shoot a subject on the north side of east Ave. as long as you don't cross the street. Ask for permission to shoot inside some of Park Ave's wonderful shops and restaurants. Don't be shy... be creative! The weather is about to turn... Be Ready!  Email your images to Don Menges by April 1st.
Creating Great Photographs with Adobe Lightroom 5.3 by Steve Levinson
Course with four Sessions April 10, 17, 24, and May 1

There are limited openings remaining for this upcoming course:  After taking this lecture and workshop course by Steve Levinson, you will be have a workflow (or standardized process) that you can efficiently follow for every photograph you make: (1) importing images into your computer so that you can easily find them at a later time, (2) selecting the best images using an organized process (3) creating a fine digital image and then (4) making a fine digital print or posting on the Internet. Time will be available to practice and discuss both provided images and images from your own portfolio. RAW is the preferred original (camera) format for images, though high quality JPEGS will also work. For full description and details Click Here.
