Slideshow with photographs from American National parks Oct. 14

National State Park Slide show: Saturday, Oct. 14, 2017  from 7 pm to 8 pm

This slideshow shows one man’s use of slide film as a medium, his love of nature and in particular Our National Park System. One of very few people who have visited and photographed all the National Parks in the continental United State during a time when slide film and in particular Kodak’s Kodachrome slide film was king.

Location: Blue House Too, 934 Watters Creek Blvd, Allen, TX 75013

David J. Stana: “My journey through life has been with an instrument to record the beauty of what I see on earth. I endeavor to capture the essence of what I see in its purest form and offer it as my interpretation for others to enjoy.”

David’s multi-image slide show is produced to present his photography with what was then State of the Art equipment in slide shows, it event had an actual computer to control the images. This has become a lost art form since slides have been for the most part replaced with digital imaging.

David J. Stana, Cr. Photog., CPP

David J. Stana has a very diverse background in photography as well as the audio/visual field including Producer, Director, Photographer, Cinematographer & Staging Director. His passion for photography and image capture started with his love of nature. For more than four decades starting in 1975 he traveled extensively throughout the National Parks. During that time he had photographed all the National Parks in the continental United States and Hawaii. The images in this collection are from film (slides) and are not Photoshop creations. The process includes high resolution slide transfer (scanning), archival pigment printing by Nash Editions, and high quality framing using museum glass. The intent of each step in the process was to keep the images as close as possible to what David saw when first looking at the image through his camera viewfinder.

David owns a diverse photography business that focuses on traditional studio portraits & commercial photography, including architecture. He has been honored with numerous international awards including a number of international Telly Awards, Matrix Awards, Nikon Response and Recognition Awards, “Flight” (was displayed in the New York Museum of Modern Art) Color Camera Club Awards and PPA – Professional Photographers of America merits. His commercial clients include a list of the Fortune 500 such as AT&T, Metropolitan Life, Alcoa, 84 Lumber, Cornell University, Snap-On-Tools, UPMC, National Council of Community Hospitals, The Coleman Company, Neiman Marcus & Raytheon to name a few.

Art Exhibit: America in Kodachrome

America in Kodachrome” is about the days when slide film photography may have been at its best and image capture was at its purest before the influence of computers. What you saw through the viewfinder was what you got and the only real manipulation of the image was with camera exposure. Sure you had focus and depth of field and different ISO films but shooting slides was very limited on the latitude the film could handle. …and no control during the processing of the image.

Stana: “My journey through life has been with an instrument to record the beauty of what I see on earth. I endeavor to capture the essence of what I see in its purest form and offer it as my interpretation for others to enjoy.”

Beyond the exhibited images on the walls David will be exhibiting several Multi-Image slide shows produced to present his photography starting with his earliest presentation entitled “Moods” that was produced over 40 years ago and with what was then State of the Art equipment in slide shows with an actual computer to control the images. This has become a lost art form since slides have been for the most part replaced with digital imaging and the slide show is now a video on You-Tube.

Come and see what media was like before MTV and smart phones and see an exhibit of unaltered images directly out of the camera and learn what shooting slide film was all about!!

Cherie Fruehan: Faces opens April 20 at the Blue House Too

facesbluehouse

The Allen Arts Alliance and Blue House Too welcome emerging artist, Cherie Fruehan, with her exhibit, Faces. The exhibit explores the familiar subject of the human face, and takes it to unexpected places, through application of color and the manipulation of mediums, creating both recognizable subjects and completely abstract interpretations.

Ms. Fruehan is best known for her distinctive bold faces conveyed through various mediums including oils, acrylics and resins applied to canvas, wood and Lucite. She is primarily self-taught, and her work lends itself to a synthesis of Neo-Expressionism and Pop Art, frequently altering a recognizable subject into something unique by utilizing vivid colors, or by completely distorting the form into an abstract interpretation.

A “pop-up” shop featuring jewelry designed and handcrafted by Ms. Fruehan will be introduced during the exhibit.  This is a new concept at Blue House Too that will  occasionally “pop-up “and feature local artisan’s smaller scale, handcrafted items, as well as other arts-related wares.

Ms. Fruehan is a self-proclaimed ‘recovering perfectionist’, who applies imperfect processes to achieve her desired result; a satisfying fusion of color and emotion expressed through her art.

She earned a BFA in Interior Design from Marywood University in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and her work has been featured on the cover and inside the pages of MENSA magazine.To see more of her work visit  www.essentialrockstar.com

There will be an opening reception for the artist, open to the public, Thursday, April 20, 2017, from 6 pm to 8 pm

Exhibit dates and location:

Friday, April 21, 2017- Sunday, May 7, 2017
