The Upstairs Artspace is holding a panel discussion of established WNC photographers on Tuesday, Sept. 6 at 7 p.m. Called “Taking A Keeper.” The program is about how amateur photographers can take pictures that are works of art.
Participating artists are Chris Bartol and Norm Powers, Tryon, Jeff Miller, Asheville, John Smith and Rimas Zailskas, Hendersonville. They are in the current Upstairs’ photography exhibit, “Carolina the Beautiful.”
The panel is an opportunity to learn about artistic viewpoints and camera techniques employed by the professionals. For example, Powers is known for photographing landscapes all over the globe (as well as Polk County); people often figure in his work. Miller’s landscapes can be minimalist and convey a meditative serenity; he is also a well-known printer. Smith is famous for large-sized photographs saturated with color and realistic detail; he favors long-range vistas across mountain ranges. Zailskas is attracted to landscapes that are quirky, humorous or startling; he is the publisher of ‘Bold Life’ magazine where he is also a photographer. Bartol is a commercial photographer for whom landscapes are more of a hobby. All work with digital cameras.
The program is free and open to the public. Doors open at 6:15 p.m. For information call 828-859-2828.
