Photographs by Phil Coleman
While seeing photos on a web-site is nice, there is nothing quite like seeing a real print. Every year, I try to show my work in several galleries. There one can look from afar and then up close to see the details. The texture and tone of the paper, the matting and framing all enhance the image and let you really experience the photograph. Pixels are ok, but a paper print is real!
I am now part of the artists' coop, Art In The Valley on Second St. in Corvallis. Some framed prints and cards will be on display with new prints every month. Through January 5, 2019, I am the "Featured Artist" in the gallery with an exhibit titled "The Wonder of Wings," a celebration of nature's amazing winged creations that fly through the air or sea.
From February 23 2018 for a month, I will show infrared prints at the Maude Kerns Gallery in Eugene along with 4 other photographers: "In a Different Light".
For the last year through February 2018, the Blue Sky Gallery in Portland has had 10 of my infrared prints in it's Viewing Drawers.
I will have prints for sale at the Fall Festival in Corvallis the last weekend of September as well as at the Clothesline Sale in Corvallis the first Saturday of August.
I also have a print in the "Cascadia," 2018 Photography traveling exhibit, Crossroads Carnegie Art Center, Baker City, OR.
