Inside Out: an invitational exhibit of art photography

Featuring 16th Street Studios Resident Art Photographers:

Trace Chiodo, Birgitta Lambert, Bob Schnack, Colleen Steenhagen, Jim Tavernese

Guest Artist: Bill Lemke of Waukesha, WI


 Since the invention of photography, the question has been asked, “Is photography art?” Inside Out, was envisioned and loosely curated by Samira Gdisis, director of Gallery on 16th. In this exhibit Gdisis seeks to give some exceptionally talented photographers an opportunity to tell the audience what makes them passionate about and motivates them to pursue the art of photography.  


Art might tell a story or evoke an emotion, inform or question but always begins in the mind and spirit of the artist. A photographer has a unique task. While understanding the basic tenants of artist design, the photographer also must have the timing and composure to react and capture time in the viewfinder of the camera. Some would tell you this is pure chance, yet each photographer develops techniques and style that are unique and that define the photographer’s art. The photographer also has a unique advantage; while the painter or sculpture’s model may shift or the light change the photographer grabs the moment and holds it captive to share with an audience.


The exhibit opens June 7th and runs through Thursday, July 26th. Summer hours in Gallery on 16th are Thursdays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. or by appointment.


Please join us for the opening reception, Thursday, June 7th from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.
