Wood Library to host Finger Lakes Photography Guild’s ‘Perspective’ exhibit – Yahoo News

CANANDAIGUA — Twenty-one local image makers will exhibit their latest work in the Finger Lakes Photography Guild’s 14th annual Wood Library photography show, "Perspective."
On display in the Ewing Community Room from Sunday, Nov. 14, through Friday, Jan. 7, "Perspective" features more than 30 color and black and white images of landscapes, wildlife, aerial perspectives, ICM (intentional camera movement), infrared, portraits and slices of life.
“The members are skilled and serious photographers with wide-ranging interests and styles,” said exhibit coordinator Mike Nyerges. “Their focus is on education and collaboration with the shared objective of helping its members realize their artistic vision with a high level of technical expertise.”
Guild member Paul Yarnall has been making images most of his life, though he’s intensified his efforts in the last 15 years.
“While I will shoot whatever catches my eye, I especially enjoy wildlife and landscapes,” he said. “My two images in this show represent one of each from a recent visit to Alaska, a lifetime goal.”
Sanford “Sandy” Morris said it was his love of photography, combined with the opportunity to travel, that have made his post-retirement years very gratifying.
“I am always looking for that unusual image, one that captures and sparks the imagination, and have found them in the wildlife of South Africa and landscapes of our beautiful Finger Lakes region,” said Morris. “I am always at the ready with my camera to capture interesting images that present themselves. Now that COVID restrictions have lessened, I look forward to resuming my travels and capturing images of the exotic and familiar.”
Photographer Diane Dersch said she’s always wanted to capture an image of a moving train. That dream became a reality when she shot "Snow Train" in Oaks Corners.
“I saw a bright light coming down the track and pulled over and started photographing the train as it came towards me,” she said. “I was thrilled to capture snow on the ground and the smoke around the train. However, to make it feel even more real to the viewer I added a layer of falling snow. This image has been one of my favorites and won second place in the 'Digitally Altered in Life' of the Finger Lakes Magazine this year.”
The Finger Lakes Photography Guild is a supportive group of photographers who strive to use digital imagery as a form of fine art. Its 33 members are from various walks of life, many of whom have been recognized in local and regional juried shows. Members pursue photographic excellence through ongoing training from guest experts, monthly educational programs, peer reviews, and by sharing tips on technique, composition, equipment, the creative process and experiences.
FLPG is a member club of the Photographic Society of America and the Niagara Frontier Regional Camera Club. Find FLPG on Facebook at @FingerLakesPhotographyGuild to learn more about the Guild and its members.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, a public opening reception is not scheduled, but guests are encouraged to view the collection at their convenience and comment at www.facebook.com/FingerLakesPhotographyGuild.
Photographs are professionally framed and available for purchase. The ongoing exhibit is free and open to the public.
Joy Underhill — "I'm always seeking a unique perspective in my photography. I don't want to take the same shot that everyone else does, so I often try to get low to dramatize a scene. So many times, I've been surprised to see that the shots I thought would be terrific are just so-so, while others just pop out when I view them later. That makes photography both fun and novel."
Joel Kerlan — “In my photography, I challenge myself to show points of view sometimes overlooked by others. These views highlight the character, mood or beauty in our surroundings.”
Joann Long — "My life has recently been so stressful and photography gives me a release to breathe. I look around and take in the beauty through my lens. I feel re-energized while editing my photos and develop a deep satisfaction when I can recreate a scene that talks to my soul.”

Rising stage star Emilie Kouatchou came close to quitting musical theater during the pandemic shutdown, worried about the future. The soprano late last month made her Broadway debut as Christine in “The Phantom of the Opera,” becoming the first Black woman in the role in the show’s 33-year history in New York. A beaming Kouatchou at the curtain call on Oct. 27 virtually sprinted back onto the stage as the audience and her castmates cheered and hooted, holding her arms in the sky like a marathon runner snapping the finish-line tape.

Hong Kong’s swanky new M+ museum — Asia’s largest gallery with a billion-dollar collection — is set to open on Friday amid controversy over politics and censorship. Designed by Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron, M+ aims to put Asia on the global map for art and was built to rival London’s Modern Tate and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The work by Ai, titled “Study of Perspective: Tian’anmen (1997),” depicts Ai raising a middle finger at Beijing’s Tiananmen Square, where a bloody crackdown by the People’s Liberation Army on pro-democracy protesters on June 4, 1989, killed hundreds, if not thousands.

The opening of a contemporary art museum intended to match the likes of London’s Tate Modern and New York’s Museum of Modern Art has caused tension between Hong Kong cultural officials and artists, amid censorship fears stemming from a China-imposed national security law. The multi-billion dollar M+ features contemporary work from leading Chinese, Asian, and Western artists including paintings, ceramics, videos, and installations from the likes of China's Zhang Xiaogang and Britain's Antony Gormley.But the imposition of a sweeping national security law by China last year on its once freest city is casting a pall over the museum's opening, as curators and artists struggle to find a balance between artistic expression and political censorship. Earlier this year, pro-Beijing politicians and media outlets criticized certain works in the M+ for breaching the national security law and inciting "hatred" against China. One of the works being a photograph by Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei, giving the middle finger in Beijing's Tiananmen Square. Henry Tang is the head of the West Kowloon Cultural District, a new cultural hub that includes the M+. Tang stressed all exhibits must "comply" with the national security law and that certain works in their collection, including Ai's contested photograph, wouldn't be displayed: "In the past there were some controversies regarding whether some exhibits might be in violation of law. So therefore I want to emphasize that point first. In order to lay the foundation, that the opening of M+ does not mean that artistic expression is above the law. It is not." Weiwei himself is critical of the implications on artistic expression these blurred lines may cause: "The situation now (has) completely changed under the national security law. The museum is under – clearly under censorship." "When you have a museum which cannot – or (is) incapable to defend its own integrity about freedom of speech, then that raises a question. And certainly, the museum cannot perform well in terms of contemporary culture. Because the very important character of contemporary art is in questioning authority."
