About the (PAG) Photo Arts Group


 

The Photo Arts Group (PAG) has made a name for itself in the County's art scene since 2003 when it was created by a handful of professional and amateur photographers. Formed under the umbrella of the Escondido Arts Partnership, the artists early focus was to promote, display, and refine their work. While this is still their focal point, the Group's interests have expanded to include mentoring aspiring artists, networking with other photography groups, and promoting photographic arts in San Diego County communities.


PAG meets every 2nd Tuesday, from 7pm to 9pm, at the Escondido Municipal Gallery, 262 E. Grand Ave., Escondido, CA 92025.

For 2014, DAG presents a juried exhibit titled Filters and Masks.  Not only do we filter reality and wear a variety of public and private faces, but as artists we dip into digital toolsets that provide other ways of framing reality. Like all the arts - visual and plastic, there are multiple layers of meanings, metaphoric and literal. The artists in this exhibit play with these ideas and invite the audience to play along and enjoy their visions.

Stereo Microscope / Journey to the Center

Stereo Trinocular Microscope / Motic SMZ-168





We decided to start traveling, see the world, new places... when it became clear that there is a world to be experienced right in our own back yard. So saving on gas and not polluting our environment, this is the next generation explorer to be added to our artistic family the other day.


It's been a long time since looking through a microscope, high school I believe. So when I sat down and peered into the new microscope eyepiece, I felt like how the 1st astronauts did looking back at the earth from space. Sounds came from my mouth, but no words, next humbled and awesome would suffice my feelings while looking at a simple aphid like insect.


I have high expectations on how I will be using this stereo trinocular microscope, capturing photos, by attaching my Canon 5D Mark ll to it, and using the images as textures, abstracts, landscapes and a list of other applicable ideas. Unfortunately, the adaptor for my camera to attach to this microscope is on order and will not be here till another week. In the meantime, we get to enter into a new world observing facinating wonders and beauty. By next month of course you will see what I speak of, through new artwork images and straight photographs...

My Outdoor Art Exhibition @ Ballast Point Gallery Aug. 2nd

Posted on August 10, 2013 at 4:45 PM

My artwork display setup and exhibition right out front of (BPG) Ballast Point Gallery on 1st. Friday, last Aug. 2nd.



Had a great time, friends visited, made new ones and artwork sold. The weather was nice and the 1st. Year Anniversary for "BPG" was filled and thrilled with art patrons!










Next week I'm getting new artwork printed on Metal, and also a bunch of new art printed on large giclee canvas gallery wraps for my upcoming "FEATURED ARTIST" show on Sept. 6th, 5pm-8pm, (reception) in Ballast Point Gallery.


Chuck McPherson chose which images he felt best would be represented output onto metal prints, I like his choices and his useful inside tips on artwork metal printing.


The partners at "BPG", came up with the final artwork choices to be exhibited there for my Sept. art show. Wildlife will be my main focus, yet there will be other art subject themes on display. Also in the galleries storage there will be a lot of other new artwork of mine, in giclee canvas wraps, available for sale for the entirety of the show…
