“Mélange” — New Images from The Brandywine Photo Collective, November 6-30, 2015
Opening Friday, November 6, 5:00 to 8:00 p.m., as part of Wilmington Art Loop.
Meet the photographers of the Brandywine Photo Collective and learn about their work and travels.
Northern Delaware’s premier organization of professional fine-art photographers presents recent works from more than a dozen of its members. Exquisite color and black & white landscape, portraiture, abstract, figurative and documentary images are on exhibit, representing some of this region’s most accomplished photographers.
Here is a chance for you to see the quality and variety of our members’ photographs in a medium other than pixels. Our work will be on display in the ground-floor foyer of the
Louis L. Redding City/County Building
800 N. French St.
Wilmington, DE 19801
and is open for visitors during normal working hours.
The Brandywine Photo Collective is a group of fine-art photographers in Delaware, Pennsylvania, and Maryland that meets monthly to critique and encourage each others’ work. We occasionally exhibit, conduct workshops, sponsor lectures, and more. The group keeps threatening to disappear but doesn’t. In 2014 we drew up bylaws, elected officers, and are working on member exhibits for 2015 and 2016. Members are admitted only after a portfolio review.
Regular Members’ Meeting, Thursday, October 15, 7:00 p.m. Meetings are usually the 3rd Thursday of the month at 7:00 p.m. Our next meeting will be at the Delaware College of Art & Design, 701 Market Street, Wilmington, DE, where we will look at the annual Faculty Exhibit, which has many photographs and many mixed media art that uses photography. Afterwards we will go to some local restaurant. It may not be possible to share work unless we can pass it around the restaurant table. Members are welcome to bring guests, but guests usually do not show work. We encourage members to schedule guest speakers who will bring work, but this should be arranged in advance.
Philly Photo Day, Friday, October 9, 2015. Contact Danny Schweers for details. The plan is to visit two photo exhibits at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and one at the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center. We’ll have lunch together and perhaps see Elizabeth Bard’s display at Rittenhouse Square. The whole day, we will be taking photos, planning for each person to submit their one best image to the Philly Photo Day exhibit.
Our Members’-Only Exhibit – TRANSITIONS – ran thru August 10, 2014 at the Delaware Art Museum, 2301 Kentmere Parkway, Wilmington, Delaware 19806.
Eddie Soloway selected 31 images from all those submitted to be exhibited. We’ve created a gallery of the winning images. Take a look by clicking here. These images are the winners of the 2014 Members-Only Competition of the Brandywine Photo Collective. Visit the Delaware Art Museum website.
