Granbury Camera Club Summer Challenge!

Here we are in summer 2017 and it is time for you to tackle a Granbury Camera Club Summer Challenge! This year, your challenge is to take photos in June, July and August to depict the following subjects:
Splish Splash
On the Road
Ready, Set, Action-filled!
Chillin’ Summer Days
Red Hot

How you interpret the subject is up to you. Be creative! You will submit your favorite photo in 5 of the 6 possible categories. We will offer a prize to a winner in each category. Winners will be based on creativity, appropriateness to the subject matter, composition and technical merit. I will get back to you on submission details.

Have fun this summer! Remember, we do not meet at as a group during June, July or August. Our next meeting will be the third Tuesday in September at The Shanley House unless otherwise announced.

I would love to have some of you take over responsibility for our annual photography show and/or monthly meetings. Don’t be shy, volunteer! Just email me with your interest.

Thank you for everything. I look forward to seeing your images. Getting to know you better as we explore photography is a blast!

June 12th LGAA Meeting features Paula Nemec

The next LGAA meeting will be held on June 12th and 7pm. Our guest demonstration artist is Paula Nemec. Anyone with an interest in art is invited to attend.

Artist Statement:

Paul Gardner once said “A painting is never finished it simply stops in an interesting place.” I strive to create those interesting places using a vast range of media, Acrylics, Oils on canvas and paper, molded papers that often become sculptural and steel sculptures that often become functional furniture pieces. My pieces verge on the abstract with a touch of reality either in the symbols, shapes or figurative work. I am always painting my inner vision of the world around me and delight in capturing the human condition.. I work at combining the visual and the verbal, the abstract and the conceptual.

My passion is the perseverance of the creative process. To always be changing and growing, constantly asking why and why not, pushing the process in new directions. I receive great pleasure in sharing this creative process with others. This is accomplished through my teaching and lecturing around the country. "My art and my life are always in process, always changing, taking new shapes and going down different avenues of creativity."

Pam Fritz featured artist for LSGN at Shanley House Gallery

Last Saturday Gallery Night's featured artist at Shanley House Gallery is Pam Fritz. It is also the opening of the LGAA "Americana" show. Stop in, meet Pam and take a look at all the work.

Pam has been a member of LGAA for 17 years and her work’s primary focus is abstract, non-objective. Recently she has changed her main medium and works in acrylic rather than watercolor. Bright color is the driving force in Pam’s work; having just completed a “red phase”. Collage and zentangle are also of interest. Finding a way to incorporate all the three media is her goal for the future. Pam says her art association is a great inspiration and she is looking forward to being the featured artist at The May Last Saturday Gallery Night.
