Exhibit presents Native American Celebrations
Submitted By PhotoCentral
Hayward Area Recreation District's PhotoCentral presents two exciting views of Native American Celebrations, "Still Here: Native American Celebrations: Photographs by Sue Reynolds" and, "Kay Franke's Silver Gelatin Powwow Prints" running November 1 through January 12.
Sue Reynolds is a fourth-generation Californian of Northern European descent. A fine arts and documentary photographer, she is passionate about creating bridges of understanding between non-native and native peoples. Since 2005, she has photographed American Indian people and their celebrations across the West. Her images have appeared in exhibits in California, Montana, and Japan, and in publications including Montana Magazine, Indian Country Today, Cowboys & Indians and her books, "Proud People" (2007) and "Still Here: Not Living in Tipis" (2013). She resides in Walnut Creek. You can see more of her work at www.susanreynoldsphotography.com.
Kay Franke was a long-time volunteer and supporter of PhotoCentral and the arts in Hayward. When she died in 2003, she left a rich body of hand-tinted silver gelatin prints of powwows and Native American portraits. PhotoCentral is proud to share these vintage and contemporary prints from the Kay Franke archive expressing both the traditions of Native Americans and of hand-tinted photography. Proceeds from sales of Kay Franke prints will go to PhotoCentral, the Red Cross, and the American Indian College Fund. Thank you to Hahnemhle FineArt for donations to make this exhibition possible.
There will be a public reception and Gallery Talk with Photographer Sue Reynolds and Ohlone Indians Andrew Galvan and Vincent Medina on Friday, November 1st. Other Gallery Talks with Sue Reynolds will be on Saturday, November 23rd, Sunday, December 8th and a closing event on Sunday, January 12th. All events are free and the public is invited.
PhotoCentral offers quality artwork in its gallery and outstanding facilities for the dedicated photographic artist with classes, workshops, darkrooms, digital workstations, and a matting facility. Expand your creativity in a supportive community!
