BEYOND THE SELFIE - GUALALA ARTS CENTER


Opening Reception Friday, April 1, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.; Exhibit remains through April 24, 2016

By now, most of us are familiar with the term “selfie” — the self-portrait typically taken with an iPhone, Smartphone or other multifunctional digital device.

The availability, affordability, and multi-functionality of these digital devices has shifted the direction of photography. iPhoneography, SmartPhone Photgraphy or Mobigraphy — the terms used for photographs taken with digital devices — is now responsible for an estimated 48% of photographs produced. Coupled with the availability of “Photoshopping” applications, the artistic expression of stunning imagery has taken us well “Beyond the Selfie.” For this show artists are challenged to create fine art starting with a photograph taken with an iPhone, Smartphone or other multifunctional digital device.
