Unbound at the Candela Gallery

Opening June 1st, the Candela Gallery in Richmond, VA will present it’s inagural exhibition featuring work from over 50 contemporary photographers. Spearheaded by in amazing Gordon Stettinius,  the exhibition will continue through July 28th with a UnBound Gala event complete with beer & wine, southern finger food, great music, door prizes and much more. Event tickets will be sold in advance and at the door; and will generate the funds toward purchase and
collection of original photographic work while also actively pursuing
opportunities to donate said work to notable art institutions.

Photo Stroll Four – the final bit drawn from the permanent collection of San Diego’s Museum of Photographic Arts

Finally, the conclusion of a four-part photo stroll through the various photo exhibitions, including in previous posts Streetwise, on at San Diego’s Museum of Photographic Arts. And a big thank you to John Mann from SD who kindly took me round Balboa Park, the botanical gardens and the show.

The exhibitions have various running times: Streetwise: Masters of 60′s Photography has just finished. Inside Out: Portraits from the Permanent Collection runs until 25 September, and Imagine That! is on until 29 January 2012. I recognised the name of one of the photographer’s whose work is included in the permanent collection Ruth Thorne-Thomsen. I met her carrying a large pinhole camera in 1999 on a beach in Mexico. She was taking photos in difficult conditions with her large format pinhole camera and sent me a couple of her tests when I got back from my trip. I still have them, somewhere.

To get a glimpse see over for more, but it’s no substitute for the real thing – nor should it be. Tomorrow, photo news catch up and some show openings…

All photos Miranda Gavin, 2011.

As museums and public art institutions use social media networks and third-party sites to share content, think flickr, youtube, etc, audiences are being asked to participate in various ways. With this show, San Diego’s Museum of Photographic Arts called members of the public to send in photos from the 1960s that have social meaning for them Where were you between 1960-1969?. Follow this link to the Streetwise page

And if you want, you can see more photos that have been uploaded by members of the public from their sitting-moon portrait sessions on the chair at the gallery. Follow this MOPA link for more.
