“Daily Differences” by Colleen Henderson “Street Portraits” by Karen Keating
September 3 – October 13, 2013
Sunday, September 8, 2-4pm
Fine art photographers, Colleen Henderson and Karen Keating will present new work in their two-person exhibit at Multiple Exposures Gallery.
Colleen’s images are from an ongoing body of work from her “shot of the day” series started in 2008 after attending a contemplative photo class. The challenges of seeing and being present changed the nature of her shooting and image capture. In addition to framed photographs, Colleen will be exhibiting a limited edition of hand bound artist books.
Karen has long used the street as her stage for observing people, often in other countries. Previous portfolios are from Honduras, Bulgaria, Africa, and most intensely Cuba. A trip to Sicily during Easter week 2012 and the start of a new project in Key West are the locations for her continuing attraction to street portraits and the observation of daily life. Watching and waiting for the visual gift is both her challenge and reward. Her “Cuba: Watching and Waiting” book will be available.
Daily 10am – 6pm; Thursdays, 11am-9pm

Sarah Hood Salomon utilizes camera motion and slow shutter speeds in order to compress transitional qualities of light into one image. By moving the camera while the shutter is open, light is formed into specific ‘brush strokes,’ and familiar objects are abstracted to textures, shapes, lines and colors. She presents a subject that no longer exists within a single instant, but moves through a confluence of several moments.
Dennis O’Keefe’s images showcase the multi-colored hues and textures of the beaches of California. He writes, “From a distance, this California beach looked like any other — beautiful, but familiar. Actually walking the beach however, provided a bit of a surprise. The sand was multi-colored — blue-black, mixed with light grey and flecks of something like pale red and amber. Apparently the result of differential erosion from nearby cliffs, the sand was a show unto itself. Each ebb and flow of the waves erased the palette and created a new image. Particularly interesting was the effect that pebbles, shells and kelp detritus had on the resulting ‘canvas’ — colors and patterns were amplified on the seaward side of the obstruction, which contrasted starkly with the lee side colors. The resulting patterns often resembled birds in flight or inter-lacing leaves and fronds. It was particularly absorbing to rush from one pattern to the next, trying (often times in vain) to frame the image before it was erased forever.
Sarah Hood Salomon is a photographer and writer living in Bethesda, MD. Dennis O’Keefe specializes in the photography of intimate landscapes and lives in North Potomac, MD with his wife and family.

is finally closed for entries. I have been working hard with Joe to make sure that he has everything that he needs to complete the jurying process. This year the exhibit was even more popular than in previous years. The vast majority of images were uploaded through the website and paid through Paypal.
I have some breathing room for the short term now that I don’t have to monitor the entry process any longer. For the next two weeks, it is all on Joe, then I get involved again. Someone has to build the list of entries and get emails out to everyone who had an image juried into the exhibit.
From my look at the images that were entered, it is really stiff competition. Joe has his work cut out for him in picking the lucky 125 or so images that will be on display.
