Members of the group of contemporary photographers called Salon 67 have created an exhibition entitled Colours by Salon 67. The exhibition will be held at The Tiger Inn (Stowting, near Ashford, Kent) from 8 February to 19 April 2005. The photographers are: David Bebbington, Carol Fulton, Liz Garnett, Marie Muscat-King, Scarlet James, David Jones and Mary Sampson.
David Bebbington's objective is to produce 21st century images in the
tradition of abstract photography begun by Edward Weston. His work in this exhibition relates to this and in particular his interest with regard to landscape work and in the interaction of humankind and nature.
Carol Fulton has worked primarily for designers and publishers, creating images for book covers and posters - as well as undertaking portraits and interiors commissions. She also regularly exhibits her personal landscape work through galleries in Kent and London and is represented by Britart and Beverley Knowles Fine Art in London.
Liz Garnett is showing part of her series of flower portraits. She has experimented with different film processes to produce a series of challenging and creative photographs. Liz has been a photographer since 1995 and has had work published in books and magazines and regularly exhibits her images.
Marie Muscat-King's work has been exhibited since the early 1990's in Kent and at Photokina in Cologne. During the past 5 years her pictures have been featuring in books and magazines nationally and internationally. Her aims are to produce beautiful pictures and further explore her passion for this art.
Scarlet James has won awards both for her monochrome work and `manipulations`. Her images are sold in England and America and some of them have been used for publication in magazines and reproduced by greeting card companies.
David Jonesí work is a blend of traditional techniques and digital technology, in which he concentrates on capturing and composing the image in the normal way and fine-tuning the result, if required, through the use of digital techniques.
Mary Sampson is showing 'Flotsam' A series of colour photographs taken from objects found on the beach. Time, loss and memory are all encapsulated in these images, reminders on a dull day of past summer days.
Salon 67 is group of committed and highly motivated contemporary art photographers who are keen to promote photography as an art form. They regularly exhibit their work in the UK and overseas. Further details about the group can be found on: http://members.aol.com/salon67
