Happy 2012

Photo 612 Would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Happy 2012
As a Gallery, Photo 612 was very quiet in 2011 - The year was used to reflect - As a photo enthusiast, artist, and purveyor of all that it is beautiful, I took the year off to reflect over the value & beauty of paper. WOW!
The world seems to be going paperless - books are being replaced by kindles - What is the value of paper?! I was so perplexed by this question that I even printed some of my photographic art work on metal?!
Crisis Over! 
Paper is a design of beauty - Printed matter is going no where.  There is nothing like a gloriously designed piece of  paper - whether it be a scribbling, drawing, printed advertisement, painting, or photograph ;)
A photo is defined :  "A photograph (often shortened to photo) is an image created by light falling on a light-sensitive surface" 
What could be more beautiful than that?
Photo 612 will become more active in the upcoming year supporting on a project to project basis-  Photo 612 will continue to list upcoming events that it finds of interest - Also make followers aware of Call for Art, etc.
Wishing you ♥ & Light in 2012 - Photo 612

Happy New Year!

Photo 612 will be taking a bit of a sabbatical here in the new year of 2011 ~ Thank you to everyone who has helped Photo 612 grow and thanks for your support :)  Photo 612 will keep a FaceBook presence for the time being still sharing all news photographic.  Photo 612 is fueled by the photographic passion of Christine Foster- me.  I am so grateful to all of the friends who have come from the endeavours of Photo 612- It has been great to share my passion with others who are so equally passionate about the art of Photography.  I am proud of what has been built as a group- the friends of photo 612 (you know who you are! ) - I attended a photo event last night and grinned when someone showed me that they were wearing a Photo 612 T-shirt!  The sharing of photo ideas and even the swap of photo images- the collaborations made by sharing wall space and ideas- Again I am proud to have hosted so many great photographers since the inception of PHoto 612 in 2004 with the work of  photographic artist Kelly Ryan taping a bunch of 5x7's to the wall-  to the last show SILVER which hosted many greats including  Larry Fink amongst many many others. The list of artists who have shared their work at photo 612 is really too amazing- Curators as Well! Thanks to Eric Mencher, Rob Asman, Edna Cardinale, and Martin McNamara for judging the Photo 612 Juried shows And thanks to Stephen Perloff and the Photo Review in it's support
Events will be kept to a minimum in 2011- Photo 612 is still receiving Portfolios for review and will share photo events of interest on it's FaceBook Page 
Photo 612 will play juror this upcoming year & still partake in curating events
Happy New Year Everyone :)
