A Grave Situation

HPS Outing from Halloween

Thanks to HPS Activities Coordinator Nathalie Brouard’s time and effort to create and present this video on a recent outing (day before Halloween 2011) for your enjoyment. It features some interesting photos captured by participants including:

  • Nathalie Brouard,
  • John Kleb,
  • Lexi Nemeth,
  • Laszlo Perlaky,
  • and Dwight Theal.

The group met at Houston’s famous Glenwood Cemetery before sunrise and then they spread out for a photo-shoot that concluded around a table for brunch at Benjy’s Restaurant.

Nathalie quipped, “I found it quite fascinating to see the very diverse point of view of the photographers. Lazlo captured the magic of the sunrise light, Lexi focused was on accent of light and colors, John looked straight up to the sky, my attention was on little items and details, while Dwight highlighted the contrast between the Cemetery and the city in the background.”

HPS members and guests are invited to join us for future photographic outings. While the locations pose interesting photographic subjects, the camaraderie is the greatest draw.

HPS members to exhibit at TAACCL

HPS members Lexi Nemeth and Laszlo Perlaky were accepted and exhibited at the Winter Open Door Series 2011 exhibition at The Arts Alliance Center at Clear Lake (TAACCL). A combined six color photographs were accepted.

In addition to these, Lexi earned a 3rd place award for her body of work. The  “Talk to the Artists” (5:30-6:30 p.m.) and Show opening reception (6:30-8:30 p.m.) will take place December 1, 2011 at TAACCL. The show will be on view through January 5, 2012.

Call for Entries – “Winter”

A Smith Gallery (Johnson City, Texas) announces a “Call for Entries” for the photographic exhibition “Winter.”  The juror is HPS print competition judge and honorary member, Jean Caslin, an independent curator and career coach for emerging and mid-career visual artists.

In many parts of the world, the winter season is a time of extremes — ranging from exquisite beauty to notable hardships. The Gallery seeks both literal representations and metaphorical interpretations on this theme.

For a fee of $25 for 5 images, the deadline for online or CD submissions is Wednesday, November 30, 2011. Forty-five images will be selected for exhibition.

Awards will be given and a Blurb exhibition catalogue will be created.

The exhibition will be on view from January 6 to February 12, 2012, with a public reception on January 28 from 4 to 7 p.m. View the guidelines.
