"Camera and Brush"
by Painter Pauline Rakis and
Photographer Jerry Weinstein
May 28 - June 30, 2019
Saturday, June 8 From 4 - 6 PM
The elements of the world around us can be depicted by either the photographer’s lens or the artist’s brush. Both are intended to draw the attention of the viewer. The lens captures the artistry of nature, a moment in time, and architectural structure. The brush brings nature to the viewer through the imagination of the artist. The use of vibrant color, deep and varied texture, and unusual shapes brings the images to life.

Jerry Weinstein: "I use my photography to capture the artistry of nature - color, shape, pattern, texture - in even the most commonplace elements of the world around us – especially in nature. From my backyard to the world at large, I keep my eyes open and my camera ready for every photo opportunity. As I travel to various destinations throughout the world, I always find images that I hope capture some of the sense of location, as well as the beauty in these distant places. For this exhibit, I have concentrated on some of my recent travels, especially the Baltic States, Spain and Portugal."
Pauline Rakis: "My paintings have an element of discovery. There may be an idea when I start, but the painting takes a different direction and a completely unexpected outcome happens. The unveiling of an object is exciting. Laying down shapes and color often brings out an unexpected image which can be developed further. Often a traditional theme or central image emerges such as a landscape, still life, or seascape."
