CCC unveils local photo exhibit
The Chehalem Cultural Center has unveiled a new exhibit, featuring the work of a professional photographer.
Angela Holm sought to become part of the community of photographers in the area, so she created Photo Club PDX. According to its website, Photo Club PDX was "birthed from the desire to bring together photographers of varying interests, experience and backgrounds to create an extended community of consistent face to face connection, with perpetual personal and photographic growth, all while entering into regular unnecessary creativity."
The website continues by saying her vision for Club PDX is "to foster an environment where the larger group can bring to life many smaller focus groups to keep the community fresh and endless with opportunity."
The exhibit, titled "Photograph Intentions," opened Tuesday and will continue through March 30. There is an artist reception with Holm from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. during the First Friday Artwalk on March 1. The exhibit is in the Central Gallery.
According to her artist bio, Holm said "I'm curious. I am deeply interested in what is not easily accessible or found, yet I am not detoured by the challenge. Rather, I am hungry for adventure."
Holm has participated in several solo and group exhibitions, and her personal work ranges from wedding photography to industrial photography of manufacturing facilities.
"The concept of industrial photography is to create images of equipment, products, machinery, and often a company's team including production staff, support staff and executives," Holm described on her website.
Photo Club PDX was founded in 2018 and for the past year the club has worked on several projects together, competed in creative challenges and worked to develop their photographers. The club meets twice a month with its group of digital and film photographers, and hosts and participate in several events.
