Fire Dancing by Alan Humphrey
Fire dancing is a good image for the Fall as darkness takes hold.
Weekly meetings continue to be on hiatus for now. The FLOW show participants, you know who you are, may continue to meet as needed to prepare for the exhibit at UW Tower.
INVITATION TO SEE THIS EXHIBIT
IN THE SCHOOL OF ENVIRONMENTAL AND FOREST SCIENCES
John Tylczak: Views from the Northwoods: 1983-1995
You're invited to come see a selection of beautiful prints by photographer John Tylczak at the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences (SDFS). Sarah Thomas, who works at SEFS and is a UWPG member, is helping to coordinate the exhibition and hopes you can all stop by to see his work.
John Tylczak took these amazing black-and-white photographs of people working in the timber industry in the mid-1980's and early 1990's. Born and raised in Shelton, WA, he spent more than a decade documenting the industry, and produced over 1,500 large format negatives of people at work.

October 1 - 31, hours: 8-5 M-F
Reception on Wednesday, October 1: 4pm-6pm

Beyond the Dawn by Clarissa Szabados-Mish
NO MEETING: Tuesday, March 4
NEXT MEETING: Saturday, March 8 at 11:00am at A/NT Gallery, 2025 Westlake Ave. in downtown Seattle to view the current photography exhibit: Light & Memory
This exhibit is held in the Sub-T Room, a fabulous gallery space in the basement. Works include all forms of photographic media and subject matter. Two UWPG members were on the panel of judges for this exhibit. About 75 works were selected from over 210 works submitted for review from photographers in the U.S. and beyond. The exhibit runs through 3/30.
There's metered streetside and lot parking nearby, many buses come close and SLUT passes right in front of the A/NT building, and Westlake station for the monorail from Seattle Center is a few short blocks to the south.
For more detail please refer to the uwpg listserv email of 3/2.
MEETING: Tuesday, March 11, 5:30-8:00ish, UW TOWER, 4th floor Mezzanine - see right sidebar for directions, discussion will be about developing a fall exhibit for UW Tower. UWPG has long nurtured a direction that favors non-conventional images which give pause, hold mystery. Please be thinking of possible themes for this exhibit and of course please bring work and ideas.
MEETING: Tuesday, March 18, 6-9pm, location: UWMC RR110 Conference Room: please watch listserv for directions to this room within the UW Medical Center. A computer and digital projector will be available so people can show their work, so bring it on a portable drive or CD.
Emphasis will be on series work, so please bring work that is in a series, that is, on a related theme, with a sense of continuum or relatedness, working with an idea, please avoid bringing a mishmash of stand-alone, unrelated images. The group will comment on the work and begin to formulate new ideas about how work can be viewed, produced and exhibited. If you have photographs that you plan or wish to develop into a series, bring them for feedback with the goal of working further upon your theme.
At this meeting, two volunteers will be appointed to meet with Rachael Faust at the Henry Art Gallery to select from the collection of archived photographs for next February 2015's viewing.
Many buses run along Pacific Street past UWMC; pay parking is available at Triangle Garage across the street from the main entrance to UWMC; metered parking along 15th Ave and Northlake.

UWPG MEETINGS 2014
TUESDAY, October 21, 6pm
Room T-269 in the Health Sciences Building
Ron Hammond presents:
RALPH EUGENE MEATYARD - HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT
Ron Hammond says: "I have been fascinated by the work of Ralph Eugene Meatyard ever since I stumbled upon a used copy of the Aperture monograph that was published shortly after his untimely death in 1972. When I saw his "Dolls and Masks" show at the Art Institute in Chicago a couple of years ago I was startled both by the spectacular prints and by how strongly I responded to them as a group as opposed to as individual prints. I have no idea why I was attracted to his work in 1974 and, to a great extent, I still don’t. This program explores the life and work of an paradoxical artist."
UWPG is on Hiatus without regular scheduled Tuesday meetings at this time.
Meetings often convene in one of these locations - campus map link in left sidebar:
