Outside My Window, Frederick First Saturday, A Diversity of Vision

Blue Ridge Mountains, Thurmont, fall,
It’s now officially fall and everyone is anxious to see the leaves begin the annual transformation into Nature’s fireworks display. We have had a decent amount of rain over the past few days, nearly 1.5”, but looking towards the nearby mountains reveals very little in the way of fall color except in the lower elevations. A recent drive along the fire roads through the Frederick Watershed showed only some Sweet Gum trees turning red and a little bit of orange starting to show among the Sugar Maples at the upper elevations. Hopefully the rain will help the process and there will be beautiful warm fall days and bright colors in time for the annual Colorfest and local Oktoberfest activities. Keep your fingers crossed!

If you are out for a drive in the country and heading towards Knoxville you might want to stop in to
Pleasant Valley Studios (19419 Frog Eye Road, Knoxville, MD) to see works by Antonio, Jonna, & Toby Mendez. Each of the family members is an artist in their own right and their works range from painting to photography to sculpture. An exhibit worth the trip.

A Diversity of Vision - As briefly mentioned at the top of this post this is a photography exhibit by friends Don Dunsmore, Noah Jefferson and Russ Poole. Featuring recent works by each we attempt, through two comparative groupings and the remainder personal pieces, to show how every person views the world in a slightly different manner. The grouped images were created while we were photographing the same areas on the same day and at the same time. Though we all saw the same thing each of us interpreted the scenes before us in a unique way. This individual vision can also be seen to carry over into our personal work - even when the subject matter is similar.

To meet the Artists and to gain a little insight into how the Artist mind works join us at the opening reception for this exhibit in
The Blanche Ames Gallery of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Frederick (directions HERE)on Sunday, October 3, 2010 from 12:30 to 2:00 P.M. In addition to the images in the gallery being for sale each artist will have a selection of cards and / or unframed prints available for purchase.
