By Mona Shah
Hayward's Recreation District's 'PhotoCentral' presents an exciting exhibition of photography at its gallery from March 12 to April 30. "This 23rd annual showcase of photography from the PhotoCentral community promises to be inspiring. Landscapes, wildlife, night photography, abstractions, portraits and more await the gallery visitor. With over 65 participants, this is our largest, and we hope, best spring show ever," says Wendy Gray, Gallery Director.
This annual event celebrates the work of the students and patrons of PhotoCentral founded in 1983 by Geir and Kate Jordahl. For the past twenty-three years, PhotoCentral has developed into a community program for photographers to grow, explore and enjoy the company of other photographers.
Classes and workshops designed for photographers of all abilities and ages are offered. They are appropriate for both traditional and digital image-makers. Instructors/assistants represent a broad range of talents and photographic interests.
PhotoCentral is a great facility for photographers seeking a place to work and share ideas with fellow enthusiasts. As part of its 20th anniversary, PhotoCentral has built a quality black and white darkroom and mounting facility available to photographers with darkroom experience.
The PhotoCentral Gallery features exciting new work of local, regional and national talent. For more information, please visit http://www.photocentral.org/index.html.
The highlight to the evening's event on opening night, March 12 is the People's Choice Award. Any member of the public who visits the reception before 8 p.m. can vote for their favorite artwork. Awards for Excellence, Best of Show and the Grand Prize are given by Mark Pinsukanjana and Bryan Yedinak, Co-owners and Publishers of Modernbook Gallery, Palo Alto.
