Coming Soon: Through Our Lenses
September 5, 2014 - January 9, 2015
Presented by Santa Cruz County Bank Arts Collaborative in collaboration with Pajaro Valley Arts Council. Curated by Joan Blackmer
Opening September 5th and featuring six of our areas' finest travel photographers, Through Our Lenses, China and India: Home to Over 1/3 of the World's People offers a glimpse into the culture and lives of the people in these diverse countries. With a combination of over eighty years of photographing India and China, these artists offer an historical perspective as to how these two countries rose to become the industrialized and powerful nations they are today.
Through our Lenses, is a collaborative exhibit, which will be shown at the Pajaro Valley Gallery and at all five Santa Cruz County Bank branches. The exhibit includes a special selection of color, black and white, digital, as well as traditional gelatin silver prints by artists Mary Altier and Carol Trengove, co-curators of the Pajaro Valley Art Gallery exhibit, Elyse Destout, Shmuel Thaler, Paul Titangos, and Mark Wainer.
"We are honored to partner with the PVAC to deliver a rare opportunity for the public to view China and India from the artists' perspectives," stated Mary Anne Carson, Director of the Santa Cruz County Bank Arts Collaborative.
