Backstreet Featured Artist - Geraldine McMahan

Works in Clay

Join backstreet Gallery in honoring potter Geraldine McMahan at a reception November 14th, 3PM-5 PM during the Second Saturday Gallery Tour. For someone who loves to get her hands in clay, Geraldine has been gifted with the right talent. Each of her unique clay pieces is entirely hand built. She is a master at adding just the right texture to enhance her distinctive angular pieces. The texture may be incised with various tools, stamps or the use of materials like sandpaper. Her technique includes rounded forms she calls ‘Saturns’ that one might mistake for wheel thrown pottery. Many of these ‘Saturns’ are completed with lids sporting organic swirls for handles.

View Finder's featured January 2016 Winners - Unusual Shapes

The theme for the January meeting of the Viewfinders Camera Club was “Unusual Shapes” and we really got a variety.Betty Romero took first place with an unusual rendering of a chipmunk- liquefied. Second place went to Cliff Harvey who's picture of the exterior of a modern building was gorgeous. Alan Post was third with a very tricky photo of a glass of liquid in mid spill. It was beautiful. Next month's meeting will be the club's annual banquet held at the Elks Club on Saturday, February 20th at 5pm. There will be the usual monthly contest plus the picture of the year contest.
