Northwest artists Kristen Beck, Rich Bergeman, Jim Curtis, Nomeca Hartwell, & Paul Jorizzo use cameras to explore their individual visions. This exhibit represents the diverse approach of photography in art. Images include mysterious landscapes, celestial night skies, abstract architecture, and people of foreign lands.

Kristen Beck has lived in the Rogue Valley for the past forty years. She loves taking pictures, capturing that blink in time. Her photography includes street photography, astrophotography to abandoned sites, landscapes and wildlife. She believes you can finds beauty in everything if you just look. Rich Bergeman has been creating photographic works for over thirty years. He has used all manner of cameras and processes including silver, platinum, and Polaroid to pinhole. He now works in the infrared spectrum. Jim Curtis has a BA in Art and Industrial art from California State University at Fresno. His inspiration in this exhibit is from the dock at Port Orford on the Oregon Coast. He seeks to presents abstract images that emerge from the chaffed, rusted hulls and rudders of the ships in the port. Nomeca Hartwell has worked with a camera for over sixty years. For twenty-eight years, she worked at the Fire Lookout in the Southwest District of Oregon. The remote location of the Fire Lookout gave her time to practice her photographic skills and experience wonderful sunrises and sunsets. Paul Jorizzo explores places that are less traveled. His images were taken in remote areas of Ethiopia, Bolivia, Vietnam, and Kiribati. Through his travels, he seeks to know more about the local peoples’ culture and their daily life. His experiences in these locations have reinforced his perceptions of the sincerity and generosity among the people who have a simpler way of living.
