Huntsville Photographic Society: 2019 Members’ Showcase

Arts & Culture This annual juried selection of approximately 50 photographs by the highly talented members of the Huntsville Photographic Society will include both color and black and white photography in a range of styles. Each year, the exhibition is juried around a common theme. This year’s theme is Chiaroscuro. The word derives from the Italian chiaro, meaning clear or bright, and the Latin oscuro, meaning dark or obscure. In the visual arts, it defines a technique of exaggerating light and shadow as they define three-dimensional objects. The technique was most famously used by the 17th century painters Caravaggio and Rembrandt to increase the dramatic and psychological effects in their paintings. The Huntsville Photographic Society is an organization dedicated to promoting the art and science of photography in Huntsville and the surrounding area through informative programs, member contests, and special events. The HPS Members’ Showcase is an annual exhibition jointly organized by the Huntsville Photographic Society… Venue/ Attraction: Huntsville Museum of Art.

Huntsville Photographic Society: 2019 Members’ Showcase

Arts & Culture This annual juried selection of approximately 50 photographs by the highly talented members of the Huntsville Photographic Society will include both color and black and white photography in a range of styles. Each year, the exhibition is juried around a common theme. This year’s theme is Chiaroscuro. The word derives from the Italian chiaro, meaning clear or bright, and the Latin oscuro, meaning dark or obscure. In the visual arts, it defines a technique of exaggerating light and shadow as they define three-dimensional objects. The technique was most famously used by the 17th century painters Caravaggio and Rembrandt to increase the dramatic and psychological effects in their paintings. The Huntsville Photographic Society is an organization dedicated to promoting the art and science of photography in Huntsville and the surrounding area through informative programs, member contests, and special events. The HPS Members’ Showcase is an annual exhibition jointly organized by the Huntsville Photographic Society… Venue/ Attraction: Huntsville Museum of Art.

Looking at the Collection: John James Audubon’s Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America

Arts & Culture American artist John James Audubon achieved worldwide fame in the 1840s with his large scale folio of prints, The Birds of North America. Later in his career, he partnered with his son, John Woodhouse Audubon, and Dr. John Bachman of Charleston to document the region’s quadrupeds. Like his birds, Audubon’s Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America are still considered the finest prints of their kind published in America. He eventually produced 150 folio drawings, hand-colored and printed by J.T. Bowen of Philadelphia. This exhibition presents 18 original large-format Audubon prints from the Viviparous Quadrupeds series, donated to the Museum several years ago from an important private collection. Venue/ Attraction: Huntsville Museum of Art. Is the event free? No. Event Web Link: https://hsvmuseum.org/looking-at-the-collection-john-james-audubons-viviparous-quadrupeds-of-north-america/.

Huntsville Photographic Society: 2019 Members’ Showcase

Arts & Culture This annual juried selection of approximately 50 photographs by the highly talented members of the Huntsville Photographic Society will include both color and black and white photography in a range of styles.

The technique was most famously used by the 17th century painters Caravaggio and Rembrandt to increase the dramatic and psychological effects in their paintings. The Huntsville Photographic Society is an organization dedicated to promoting the art and science of photography in Huntsville and the surrounding area through informative programs, member contests, and special events.

HTMA Coffeehouse

Arts & Culture Guitarist, singer and songwriter Mary Flower is that rare breed of American roots artist. Her devotion to the art form is both lovingly and historically accurate, yet her creativity lends it vitality and energy that it might continue, evolve and flourish in an age of increasingly digitized and compressed music. “With her warm contralto and dazzling skills as an instrumentalist and arranger, Mary Flower has cemented her status as one of the most dynamic performers on the acoustic blues circuit.  Mary is deep in the pocket of the country blues and there are few musicians in the genre bringing as much creative spark and low-key mojo to this century-old music.” —Acoustic Guitar Magazine.

The technique was most famously used by the 17th century painters Caravaggio and Rembrandt to increase the dramatic and psychological effects in their paintings.
