The Gallery at the Shoreline Center will be exhibiting “The Beauty of Photography,” agroup show featuring Alicia Haselwood, Vadim Kin and Michael Williams now through June 30.
Alicia Haselwood’s color images, often taken at unique perspectives or angles strive to connect the viewer emotionally. For her “photography is more than the recording of an image on film, it is breathing life into that image.”
Vadim Kin’s work is deceptive in that on first glance you may think you are looking at a desert landscape or scenic when it dawns on you are the one being watched. The “faces” and personalities he finds in the stones he photographs are fun and fascinating. His desire is to remind the viewer that our environment is alive and fragile and we must to all we can to protect it.
Michael Williams made his first “stellarscape” in 1989 when he couldn’t get back to sleep on a camping trip. He has been hooked ever since. He goes out several times a year to capture the moon, a meteor shower or a particularly photogenic constellation. Despite all of this planning, sometimes his best shots are spontaneous.
The Gallery at the Shoreline Center is located in the Community Wing of the Shoreline Center, 18560 1st Ave. NE, Shoreline and is open noon to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, or by appointment. For more information visit www.shorelinearts.net or call 206-417-4645.
