We are looking forward to sharing our passion for iPhone photography, apps and creativity.  An introduction and overview of apps and uses taught by Shelley Wood and Tina Weitz.

Shelley Wood has been recently featured for one of her iphone goat selfies in  The Elevated Selfie: Beyond the Bathroom Mirror. All selfies selected were created with a smart phone and are on exhibit at Lightbox Gallery in Oregon and the Griffin Museum of Photography in Massachusetts.

Shelley received her BFA from The University of Texas at Austin. She has published nationally and internationally and has work in private, public and corporate collections. Clients include The Austin American-Statesman, Dell, Forbes, US News & World Report and The New York Times.

Live Snakes Opening Reception/Friday-July 15, 6-8pm


plutonMural_34

Peter Brown Leighton: Live Snakes

July 13-August 26, 2016
opening reception: July 15, 6-8pm

The imaginary vernacular images, taken from the portfolio “Live Snakes” are sourced from bits and pieces of discarded analog photographs acquired over the years from the dust bins of the twentieth century. They form a series of narratives composed of monochrome men fallen from grace, ambivalent women standing on the cusp of empowerment, and feral, free range children born to run.  Peter incorporates themes, introduced in his youth, that have continued to mutate and metastasize over his lifetime. While of the past (spilling over with question marks and exclamation points) they are also of the world as we know it today. A world increasingly more complex, uncertain and absurd than ever.

Location:
2832 East Martin Luther King Jr Blvd #107, Austin, TX 78702
Phone: 512.294.9550

Hours During Exhibitions:
Wed-Fri 10am-5pm Saturday noon-5pm
and by appointment

We hope you can join us and Peter Brown Leighton at the opening reception!

Tonight 6-8pm Nancy Mims: Beheld and Art at the Flatbed Building

Nancy Mims Installation_355dpinancy-mims_banners

Nancy Mims: Beheld
May 12-June 25, 2016
art night in the Flatbed Building: June 17, 6-8pm

Please visit us, CamibaArt, Gallery Shoal Creek, Flatbed Press and Gallery and a host of art studios tonight from 6-8pm for a great night of art!  Read more about Nancy, featured recently by Jeanne Claire van Ryzin of the Austin American-Statesman.

At Photo Méthode, Nancy Mims Beheld is on view. A continuation of her ongoing recent series The Sky Looms and The Passed Looms Present, with new intricate and intimate views of the world above and below. Often stitched or woven and printed on linen, her images draw the viewer to touch the earth and sky.

The Sky Looms translates the process of disassembly and reassembly of imagery into the acts of stitching and weaving.

“I was attracted to embroidery, I had the urge to stitch, but I could never summon the patience for traditional embroidery, could never sit and stitch – until I started these pieces. After I started stitching scaffolding in the sky, I couldn’t stop.”

The Sky Looms series works with “collaborating with chance” – to borrow Rebecca Solnit’s phrase. The result is in works that appear whole, but reveal their fragmentation and fragility of the structural underpinnings keeping the fabric (and image) intact.
