Interactive Collage Workshop with the Rockridge Community Photography Group

Event has passed (Sat Dec 10, 2016 - Sat Dec 10, 2016)
Oakland Public Library - Rockridge Branch
11:30 am


Aspiring and established artists of all ages are invited to join us for an interactive collage workshop. Bring items or photographs you might want to include, or just use our supplies to make something all your own.

The workshop will be led by Lea del Pomo and Martha Snider from the Rockridge Community Photography Group. This hands on workshop is presented in conjunction with the exhibit "People, Places, Things"

“People, Places and Things” is an eclectic collection of photographs ranging from iconic black and whites captured on film to boldly colorful geometrics created by an electronic technique called photomerge. The “People” photos are from as close as Telegraph Avenue and as far as Petra, Jordan. "Places" include the untamed California Coast, Glacier Park in Montana, Jordan, Tibet, and Viet Nam. Although many “Things” on display will be recognizable, the show will include abstracts, hyper-realism and collage. The December show is about “being there” for the present moment, pausing to notice, elevating the ordinary, and playing with perfection.

The original Rockridge Community Photography Group formed in 2002. It has reconfigured over time and continually added new members. The current group came together around decades-long friendships and equally long-standing preoccupations with shadow and light.
