Art Wolfe – Seattle’s Master Photographer – 2

Yesterday’s post began a series about Art Wolfe, a Seattle photographer recognized throughout the world for his mastery of color, composition and perspective.

He has authored more than sixty books of photography, and Art spends nearly nine months of the year traveling on shoots. The Seattle exhibition “One World, One Vision” in 2003 at the Frye Art Museum, Seattle was one you may have seen, and currently you can attend an exhibition of Art Wolfe’s work nearby (more on that below).

Art’s Public Television program, “Travels to the Edge,” launched on PBS in May of 2007, and it currently airs on public television stations in 47 U.S. States and on 35 of the top 40 regular-market stations. The series has reached 73% of U.S. households, and undoubtedly these viewers are transfixed by Art’s work and talent, too.

Art Wolfe has been awarded:
___ a coveted Alfred Eisenstaedt Magazine Photography Award
___ Outstanding Nature Photographer of the Year by the North American Nature Photography Association
___ National Audubon Society recognized Wolfe’s work in support of the national wildlife refuge system with its first-ever Rachel Carson Award
___ membership on Canon’s elite list of renowned photographers, “Explorers of Light”
___ membership in Microsoft’s Icons of Imaging

___ membership on Fujifilm’s Talent Team.

Art Wolfe has released over sixty books, including the award-winning “Vanishing Act” and “Edge of the Earth – Corner of the Sky”.

Presently, you can take the Washington State Ferry system from Seattle to delightful Roche Harbor in the San Juan Islands to see an exhibition of Art Wolfe’s work at San Juan Island’s Museum of Art and Sculpture Park.
Art Wolfe – Current Exhibition. The print exhibit will run through June 13, 2010.

The San Juan Islands Museum of Art & Sculpture Park (IMA) is sounding the call to Washington, Oregon and British Columbia artists to enter IMA’s juried visual arts competition — Green: ON THE EDGE.
So, if you qualify, you can bring or send your artistic piece and learn more about it all online from the information below.

In this ecologically aware part of the world, the upcoming summer IMA exhibition is asking artists to tackle the question, “What does green mean to you… the word GREEN, the metaphor GREEN, or the symbol GREEN?” and ON THE EDGE is IMA’s way of saying, don’t be conservative, take it to the edge! That’s what Art Wolfe does!

IMA are seeking “edgy” work in any visual media and size that meets the Conditions & Shipping requirements listed on their site. Work must be original and current (completed within the last two years.)

Entry Postmark Deadline: May 24, 2010
Exhibition Dates: July 2, 2010 through September
