ExquisiteCorpse_ACJPC

An art sale fundraiser for Maine Media Workshops + College.

June 24, 2015 – Brewster Point Barn, Rockport, ME

VIP Reception 5:30-6:30 pm / Main Event 6:30-8:30 pm

“This summer our friends, local artists, and community members will gather in Rockport to celebrate the spirit of creative collaboration that is at the heart of everything we do. Originally enjoyed as a parlor game by French Surrealists in the early 1920s, exquisite corpse is a collaborative artistic process that celebrates the unexpected. In most forms of the game, only a portion of what one artist has created is visible to the others, resulting in unusual, surprising, and unpredictably kinetic creations.

We have invited our own community of world-renowned artists to collaborate with each other and with other local artists representing a diverse range of visual arts. These unique works of art will be sold at the event, where our guests will also enjoy the premiere of an Exquisite Corpse film created by special friends of our film program, as well as the limited edition release of our Exquisite Corpse book, created by more than 120 of our instructors and alumni.

Did we mention there will be an absinthe fountain?”

PHOTOGRAPH_13_425

Here’s what David DuChemin shared about PHOTOGRAPH Issue 13.

“Issue 13 of PHOTOGRAPH magazine highlights a variety of photographic adventures (close to my heart!), including the strength and elegance of being underwater, climbing to heart-stopping heights, hiking through the mystery of the Dowrog, and the sport of finding just the right light in a place you know like the back of your hand.

I’m thrilled to feature the portfolios and interviews with Mallory Morrison, who flows into the feeling of summer with a unique and graceful combination of fashion and dance—underwater; photographer/videographer Jordan Manley, who makes his craft a physical art; rural documentary photographer Chris Tancock, whose numerous collections are all made within a five-mile radius of his home; and the majestic Yosemite landscapes of Michael Frye, who has found the Park to be his perfect muse.

In addition to the featured portfolios, contributors John Paul Caponigro, Bruce Percy, Guy Tal, Chris Orwig, Martin Bailey, Adam Blasberg and I jump in with articles on improvisation, size, the philosophy of returning, finding your creative habitat, configuration, optimal focus modes, and how to make portraits in the tiniest of spaces.”

This installment in my column Creative Composition explores the power of Size.

“I took this image on a workshop in Spruce Head, Maine, right after a breakup,” Graham says, “and only later realized that it represented smoothness and calmness on one side, tumult on the other, and a line of demarcation in between.” A pivotal image, it led to Graham’s evaluative question: What do I see?”

Here’s an excerpt of alumnus Jim Graham’s feature in Shutterbug.

“We assumed the first thing Jim Graham does in order to create his elegant landscape images is decide how to isolate his subjects from distracting backgrounds to achieve the always-desired single subject, clearly defined.

We were wrong. The first thing he does is ask himself: What do I see? Then he asks: How do I use the camera to communicate the feeling I have about what I see?

The answers, coupled with his skill at the striking use of color, form, and light within the frame, often result in symbolic representations of personal stories and feelings far beyond the literal subject in the frame.

Simply put, Jim Graham is out to say a lot more than ‘Isn’t this a pretty picture?’” …
