AI&G 3rd Friday Events
The AI&G will hold the Opening Reception for the 2011 Photography Show and Digital Art Invitational on the 3rd Friday, April 15th from 5-7 pm.
Sponsored by Matice Interactive of Salisbury, The Photography Show will feature local and regional photography works in traditional photography, digital photography and other unique genres of photography. The Digital Art Invitational spotlights the digital art works of Robert Heron, Rudelle Fay Hall, Thomas Maglio and Maria Barga. In addition to art works, these digital artists will demonstrate to the public how digital art is created on computers.
The Foyer Gallery Solo Exhibitor is David Ganoe of Salisbury, MD. Dave Ganoe, a graduate of Gettysburg College and retired university administrator at Salisbury State University, began his formal study of photography while at Salisbury. He has attended the Cape Cod Photographic Workshops, The Rock Mountain School of Photography and the Maine Photography Workshops. Additional he has participated in three Calumet Photographic Workshops. The Calumet Workshops focused on black and white photography and creativity. While he has studied with noted photographers as Rod Dresser, Richard Newman, Les McLean and George DeWolfe, he
found major influences on his work came from photographers such as Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, John Wawrzonek and painter Georgia O'Keefe to name a few.
Photography has allowed him to explore his contemplative and spiritual bond with nature to demonstrate the interconnection between all things. Given our modern culture, we have grown distant from the Earth that sustains us. His hope is that his photographs will reveal the deep spiritual dimension in nature and help people rekindle their squandered intimacy with the "Great Mystery"
Entertainment will be provided by Musician and Guitarist, Jess Banner. Music became a part of Jess's life early on with rock n' roll from his parents band practices to bedtime lullabies. Banner was raised to express himself through music. A keyboard at age 10 laid the foundation for his musical skills. He picked up more instruments as time went on which now allows him to play all of the instruments featured in his original music to date. Banner is also an advocate for environmental issues. His strong desire for environmental relief is heard in the song "For How Long" from his debut album "Sunshine." He has also played environmental benefit concerts, and continues to spread his knowledge about environmental well being along with his heartfelt music. Jess Banner's deeply intricate, harmonically layered, and beautifully arranged music can be described as The Beatles and Led Zeppelin meets Coldplay, and can be enjoyed by people of all ages.
The 2011 Photography Show, the Digital Art Invitational an the Foyer Gallery exhibition of Dave Ganoe will hang from April 15 - May 13, 2011.
The Opening Reception is free to the public and will be a part of Salisbury's 3rd Friday events.
