"Dancing with the Universe" by Jim Hartsen

Runs Through May 18

Jim Hartsen is our featured photographer for the current exhibit "Dancing with the Universe". In describing the art, Peter Marr commented that "Jim Hartsen's powerful abstract images abound with blazes of strong color and fantastic shapes and forms that are a great tribute to his extraordinary vision and artistic skills. The gallery walls are lit up with a whole range of striking prints that on casual observation might remind the viewer of an amoeba, an eye, a trumpet, a horse, a car, or even a human figure."
A total of 25 photographers' work is part of the show with the additional photographs by the students of the Eastern Monroe Career Center, in our East Gallery, and guest photographers Cheryl Bennett, Jim Marron, Don Menges, and Max Rempel. Additional photographs by Artists-in-Residence Gil Maker, Jim Patton, and David Perlman and the seven gallery partners all add up to an exceptional mix of photographs.

This is a new service that will take advantage of the established image of Image City Photography Gallery and the traffic that we have on our website to reach a new audience to promote and sell your work on the Internet. Without the effort of site management and at a very low cost, depending on the size of the gallery, of $8 or $12 per month, you could be exhibiting your photographs online. For more details, stop by the gallery, give us a call (585-271-2540) or send us an email. The process is easy and starts when you submit a portfolio of your work for review.
Gary Thompson's Photo Tip of the Month
Fog and Haze can Create Mood

Just as foreground can be used to create the impression of 3D character, fog and haze can also be used to produce this perception. By creating the feeling of depth the viewer identifies with the landscape and remembers past experiences associated with similar scenes. These experiences trigger feelings and mood is communicated.
