CoPA: "The People in Your Neighborhood" Exhibition at Museum of Wisconsin Art

Today in America, many of us are more familiar with our online world than our actual neighborhood. We spend endless hours on social media and interact with hundreds of people on virtual forums. We think of these as intimate relationships, but often they are separated by vast expanses of physical space. In The People in Your Neighborhood, MOWA celebrates the uniqueness of place with photographs from members of CoPA. The exhibition runs concurrently with Carl Corey: For Love and Money.

CoPA and The Friends of Boerner Botanical Gardens "Welcoming Summer" Photo Exhibition

Photographs depicting Welcoming Summer have been selected for exhibit and sale in the Boerner Botanical Gardens Gift Shop. The Friends of Boerner Botanical Gardens are dedicated to preserving and promoting Boerner Botanical Gardens and Arboretum as an outstanding regional resource and vital regional asset.

“Master Photography Workflow” Workshop with Carl Corey

Spend two full days with master printer and photographer Carl Corey while he develops a custom workflow from your raw file. This is a one-on-one workshop designed around your working preferences. Using Adobe Lightroom®, Capture One®, Adobe Photoshop® and Canon printers Carl will take you from raw file development through the file tweaking process to finished file and print. You will learn how to have complete control over your camera files, proper archiving and resource management and most importantly the ability to repeatedly create the very best archive files and archival prints in both color and B&W.

CoPA member Marc Wollman will be in a two-artist joint exhibition at Anderson Arts Center in Kenosha, Wisconsin. This exhibition pairs Wollman's photographs with sculptures by Deedee Dumont.

You are invited to the solo exhibit,  The New Global Women – Anchored in Tradition, Navigating the Future. This will be a return engagement for Milwaukee photographer Larry D’Attilio, whom you will remember from his last Tamarack exhibit: The Soul of Vietnam, last July of 2012. Larry has returned to Vietnam, continuing his exploration of the complex world of young women emerging from highly evolved yet rigid social/spiritual traditions into modern, sophisticated, cosmopolitan career women. Larry himself has evolved his own media traditions to express this complexity. Through Larry’s new abstractions, the struggles, fears, aspirations, and tensions of these women become palpable to us in ways far beyond what is possible with the simple portrait. These are very large prints, and utterly arresting in their impact.
