Artistic Vision Group

Janice Koskey, Group Leader

(available to members only)

This new group was started last year but due to the club’s shutdown we were unable to complete the meetings. We hope the membership will take advantage of the opportunity to revisit the process and complete the 3 monthly meetings that are booked to start in December, 2020.

What  is your artistic vision? How do your photographs express your intention, insight, and appreciation for the world? What does your photographic art say to others?

In this group we will contemplate our work and ask ourselves questions about the concrete and abstract qualities that our printed photographs suggest. We will explore how the visual elements such as lighting, color, and composition bring to mind the story behind the photo and its more subtle significance, the meaning and metaphor expressed through our work. We will learn about and discuss topics such as gesture, mood, and emotion in an attempt to discover how they are conveyed through our vision and how the tools of the trade at our disposal can help us grow as photographic artists.

The Artistic Vision Group is meant to provide the time and space for you to look more deeply into where you are and where you want to go in the art of photography. Across appropriately distanced tables you will have the chance to talk about your photographs, the thinking and feeling that went into their creation, and how you attempted to accomplish your purpose in your artwork. You will also hear feedback from others about how they see the elements of your photo and the overall effect it has on the viewer. 

Please bring 1-3 printed photographs only, no digital images-mounted or unmounted (size does not matter but they should be large enough to view for discussion) and an open mind to explore the art of photography and support others in its pursuit.

Janice Koskey has been a member of our club since 2011. In recent years she has been studying contemplative photography and exploring the elements of fine art photography. As a result she published an article entitled “Contemplating our Fine Art Photography” in a recent PSA Journal And has created workshop/talks on Artistic Vision which she has presented at Marblehead Arts Association and Newburyport Arts Association as well as here at GLPA.
