K.B. Dixon – Face to Face: 32 Oregon Artists

Please join us for the Opening and Artist Reception, Saturday July 9th , 5-8pm
This Exhibit is a Collaboration with Astoria Visual Arts – Artist talk: 4:30pm

“A good picture tells a story, and nothing tells a story better—more eloquently, more efficiently—than the human face. The faces in this exhibition are those of Oregon artists. The story they tell, in part, is that of Oregon’s cultural history. They are the people who define the contemporary art scene—gifted and dedicated people whose work has enriched our lives and whose legacies are destined to be part of our cultural heritage. With each portrait it has been my hope to produce first a decent photograph—a truthful record, one that honors the unique strength of the medium, but I have sought also to produce a photograph that resonates, one that is more than just a simple statement of fact, one that preserves for myself and others a brief glimpse of the being behind the image”. ~ K. B. Dixon

In collaboration with Astoria Visual Arts , we present an artists talk with photographer K.B. Dixon at 4:30p.m. on Saturday, July 9th, at the gallery before the artist opening reception. Joining Dixon will be artists Henk Pander, Sherrie Wolf and others whose portraits are part of the series. They will discuss the art of the portrait, the artists perspective, and the other side of the camera. To reserve a seat for this artists talk before the opening reception, please contact LightBox Photographic Gallery at 503-468-0238.
