The Coalition of Photographic Arts and the Art*Bar are pleased to present the Super-"Calatrava"-Listic Exhibition, to be held at the Art*Bar from July 19 though August 22, 2013. The juror is Don Krause, owner of the Art*Bar.

The Quadracci Pavilion, affectionately called the "Calatrava" after its architect, Santiago Calatrava, is probably the most photographed building in the city. The idea behind this show is to compare how different artists/photographers "see" the building. It is an iconic structure, but every photographer has a unique "eye," and this promises to be a fascinating look into all the different kinds of ways artists are able to portray the same, highly recognizable subject.

The impetus for this article was a recent conversation with self-described “Analog Man,” a fine arts photographer who uses only film and has no interest in social media, yet wants to sell his work. I was intrigued by the whys and wherefores of that stance in this digital age. Knowing a couple of other photographer friends who were similarly reluctant -- but many more who do share online -- I set out to discover what photographers think about this issue.

Being familiar with many of these photographers' work, I will warn you, we are talking to some heavy-duty talent here. And, bonus: all of this talent comes with well-thought-out stances about why they do what they do.

It acknowledges we are all part of the same wide ecosystem, and encourages awareness of the living world”.  Each photograph in the Wild gallery is available to purchase in a limited edition print run for £50.00, with all money raised going to PhotoVoice.

cinephile: This project for CoPA member Jessica Z. Schafer's Featured Member Exhibition at WPCA began taking shape during an Art Marathon in the Summer of 2012. During the 30 days of art launched by the Cream City Illustrators of Milwaukee, Schafer started to further explore a format of photography diptychs and triptychs.  The resulting series of still images is reminiscent of the frames of a black & white filmstrip.

The sequences offer a more complex narrative than a single image while leaving more to the imagination than the constant stream of video we encounter in modern life. Inspired by a lifelong interest in the careful design of classic films, each work intends to convey the atmosphere of a few moments in time. These are the makings of memories- snapshots meant to mimic how the mind’s eye remembers a slice of time, more so than to strictly document reality.

"Synecdoche, a literary device in which the part represents the whole. My images are visual examples of synecdoche. My subject is the complex – often paradoxical – relationships I see between nature and architecture. My approach, using the part to represent the whole, symbolizes the fragmentation we experience in our everyday environment." ~ Eddee Daniel
