Opening Reception on January 17, 2019
Artist Photographer: John Howland
This exhibit is about sunrises. It contains sixteen photographs of Tacoma sunrises showing the precise moments that made them interesting to my eye. Some are spectacular, some mysterious and some quite subtle, but hopefully they all inspire the same sense of peace, enjoyment and even excitement I felt as they revealed themselves to me.
Most of the photos were printed on aluminum sheets. One was digitally rendered as a watercolor in the “Painterly” style and printed on fine art, watercolor paper and another was digitally rendered as a detailed oil painting in the style of the “Hudson River School”. Another is a collage showing three photographs of the “Green Flash” that occurs when weather conditions are just right, as the sun breaks the horizon. The last picture in the collage is a mashup of the series that creates a new mountain range and an “Eye of the Green Flash”.
The first twenty visitors to this exhibit will receive a free 4X6” inch print of one of the artist’s favorite sunrise photographs.
There will be a reception on January 17, 2019, with light beverages and gourmet snacks from 4 to 7 PM in conjunction with the Third Thursday Art Walk. Please visit us for this event to meet some of our artists and enjoy our featured exhibit as well as another 100+ works by other artists in our collective. The “Tacoma Sunrise” show runs through, February 16, 2019.
