Are you a person who saves your life in pictures? Do you enjoy seeing snippets of time in photographs from other people’s lives?
If so, you may want to attend the opening of the Indiana Photographic Society’s Through the Lens exhibit titled “Window on the World. Opening night for the ninth annual show runs from 5-7 p.m. Saturday at the Garfield Park Arts Center, 2450 Shelby St., where 90 themed interpretations from 23 photographers will be featured.
Society President Anthony Carlino, who is curating the event with club Vice President Dave Wensits, said he and other members will be happy to discuss their photos throughout the evening. A couple of their works from last year are shown below.
The society, which meets at 7 p.m. every Wednesday at the center, is a diverse group of artists who use old and new technology to produce and promote fine art photography. They enjoy field trips, photographic themed instruction and seeking opportunities to exhibit and sell their works. Membership is free.
The members have varied backgrounds; some are photographic professionals in the publishing industry, others are teachers or own photography businesses. Although not all are lifelong photographers, they all are qualified artists with a message to express through their works. All members are willing to share their knowledge to help you grow in capturing better photographs.
The opening will feature tasty treats and music by the Perry Meridian High School string quartet. There is no admission charge, and the exhibit can also be viewed from 3-9 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday.
Many of the works will be available for purchase, but all will remain on exhibit through April 25.
