Each year the Center for Creative Expression recruits talented students for a special photography class called the Wednesday Group. Beginning in September, the group meets with center director Janice Baer and her husband Chris and head out to forgotten parts and unbeaten paths of Martha's Vineyard. The result of this year's adventures are on the walls of the Featherstone Center for the Arts gallery in a show titled "Light and Decomposition."
Photographer Ray Ewing explains his fascination with light.
Student Ray Ewing agrees, saying he takes darkroom lessons at Featherstone so he can learn both methods. "I've always been fascinated with light and ways to capture it," said Mr. Ewing. His photograph, "Death System," won a gold key award in the Scholastic Art and Writing Competition in Boston, and a silver key award in the national competition in New York City, where the photograph is on display.
"Light and Decomposition" continues April 5 and 6, 12 noon to 4 pm and April 7 and 8, 11 am to 1 pm, at Featherstone Center for the Arts, Barnes Road, Oak Bluffs. Admission is free. For more information, call Featherstone at 508-693-1850 or the Center for Creative Expression at 508-696-4545.
