Opening Reception: Saturday, April 5, 2008, 5:00 p.m.
Exhibit remains through April 30
The Dolphin Gallery will feature Jeanne Gadol, photographer, in an exhibit titled "Photographic Explorations" from the opening April 5 from 5 to 7:00 p.m. through April 30.
Jeanne Gadol combines her fine art photography, her previous career as a graphic designer and new technological capabilities in this show of photographic explorations. All centering on the natural world, the imagery includes pure fine art photography, enhanced photography, colorized photography and infrared photography. In addition to many traditionally framed images, the pieces take a variety of forms including groupings, images printed on tiles, and a witty new book combining her text and graphics.
Jeanne Gadol has loved art and nature as long as she remembers. As a child she thrilled when her parents took her to art museums and galleries. She explored a variety of mediums through the years as a hobbyist and ran a successful graphic and website design business prior to retiring. The last eight years have given her the opportunity to become an accomplished photographer, studying under and co-teaching with both world-renowned photographer and environmentalist Robert Glenn Ketchum and National Geographic photographer Ralph Lee Hopkins. At the same time she is avidly exploring ways to combine her photography with her graphic design skills and to work in new ways as they continue to unfold in the digital age.
She has won numerous awards for her work, has had shows in Portola Valley, Fort Bragg and Gualala, and been in a multitude of group invitational and juried shows. She is a popular speaker at photo clubs in the Bay Area and her photographic montage art was the featured portfolio in PC Photo Magazine.
The Dolphin Gallery is located at
