During the month of April, the Coastal Arts League will host a special exhibition of local photographers and their creative works entitled, “From Concept to Print.” The 50 pieces selected by the Peninsula Photographic Arts Guild feature landscapes, intimate candid portraits, seascapes, montages, and abstract works in both color and black and white.
Two Coastside artists are featured in the exhibit.
Moss Beach photographer Martha Ketterer will be presenting a visual exploration of time and nature called “La Luna Los Cabos.” This project displays an overlaying series of photographs in a unique panorama portraying the shifting light and motion of the sea. It was photographed during the full moon on the summer solstice.
Half Moon Bay resident Steve Okonek will be showcasing his love of unique architecture with a series of lighthouses above the Arctic Circle, as well as other maritime scenes.
The Peninsula Photographic Arts Guild is an association of Bay Area photographers dedicated to the creation and promotion of fine art photography. Each photographer has studied photography extensively through programs, seminars, workshops and colleges in the Bay Area.
The association selects its members through a juried process, and many in the group have won photography awards and have been published in photographic magazines.
This is the first time that members of the association have been featured together at the Coastal Arts League.
The exhibit will be on view from April 18 through May 5 at the Coastal Arts League Gallery, 300 Main St. in Half Moon Bay. A reception with the artists will be held on Saturday, April 20, from 2 to 5 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
