'Sketches in Light' celebrates art of digital photography
"Sketches in Light" is a fresh look at digital art photography from the points of view of two Juneau artists: Marilyn Holmes and Teri Tibbett.

An exhibit of their recent works will show side by side at the Juneau Arts & Humanities Council Gallery for October, with an opening reception on Oct. 3 from 4:30-7 p.m. as part of the First Friday Gallery Walk.

The show promises to change the way you see your everyday world. As photographer Ernst Haas once said, "We do not take pictures, we are taken by pictures."

The offerings in this show speak to this impulse. They are scenes and impressions that have randomly grabbed our attention and we in turn have snatched with our cameras. In this era of instant feedback, digital photography has changed our access to photographic image making - creating a more spontaneous, more magical relationship to the creative capture of our individual visions.

Marilyn Holmes

Marilyn Holmes is a career professional photographer who has worked in the fields of advertising, documentary, portraiture, food, architecture and fine art photography over several decades - both in Alaska and the lower 48. She has taught photography at all levels of academia from kindergarten through college and is a member of the Alaska Photographic Arts Association and the Juneau Arts & Humanities Council.

The photographs for this show, Sketches in Light, offer both a fresh impressionistic vision as well as new techniques developed through her recent immersion in digital photography.

Teri Tibbett

Teri is a photographer of natural, abstract and journalistic images. She captures what she sees appearing naturally in the environment to create visual compositions, often in the abstract. She is also a journalist and photographs people, places and art in nature. She does not crop, use filters or enhance her photos with digital software. Teri's photographs have twice shown with Alaska Positive, a juried exhibition of images by Alaskan photographers and have been published in Alaska Snowboarder's Journal, Alaskan Southeaster Magazine and the Juneau Empire.

During the reception, there will be a no host bar, provided by the Rendezvous, in the main hall.

Also, swing by the United Way's Community Kick Off, 5-6 pm, in the main hall. There will be snacks, door prizes and a silent auction with proceeds supporting the United Way.
