What Is Important Is includes the work of artists whose practices document contemporary engagement with objects and events that are evidence of changing contexts and the complex character of how the past lives in current and future circumstances. Susan Mullally’s (Waco) project What I Keep, Portraits and Choices is a collaboration with members of The Church Under the Bridge, a multi-cultural Christian church, whose members meet under the I-35 bridge in Waco. Mullally asks individuals what they keep and why they keep it. Kurt Gohde and Kremena Todorova’s (Lexington, KY) project, Discarded, includes images of discarded furniture and those who once owned it or those who live nearby. In her series, Desperate Signs and Signs of the Times, Liz Maugans (Cleveland) considers popular sayings and examples of text used to re-sell objects by attracting “new owners.” Maugans re-positions these objects and their unique histories for new audiences.

George Krause’s series of life-size nudes present the human body in a serenely ethereal environment. His use of the misty sfumato technique in these insightful portraits highlight the more often dismissed parts of an individual’s physique. Kneecaps and fingertips, tattoos and the occasional adornment speak volumes in the absolute stillness of white light.

In Krause’s words: My work explores a land that is bordered on the one side by the ‘real’ imagery of photography and on the other in the world of fantasy, bridged with a touch of humor.

George Krause was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1937 and attended Philadelphia College of Art on a scholarship. He received the first Prix de Rome and the first Fulbright-Hayes Fellowship ever awarded to a photographer. He has also received two Guggenheim Fellowships and three grants from the National Endowment for the Arts. In 1993 he was the first photographer selected as Texas Artist of the Year. Krause’s photographs are found in the world’s major museum collections, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Houston Museum of Fine Arts, the Library of Congress, the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris. He recently retired from the University of Houston, where in 1975 he founded the photography program, and now lives in Wimberley, Texas with two dogs and five cats.

San Antonio artist Rebecca Dietz explores the carnival with photographs of fair grounds and boardwalk amusement parks along the Mid-Atlantic coast. Using a film camera and gelatin silver print techniques, her works are infused with wonder, curiosity and nostalgia.

In Dietz’s words: As I witnessed the parks and rides, they seemed triumphant in their history and defiant of decay. They danced along the earth’s edge, where land yields to sea, the last area uncharted by roads and urban development.

Dietz is an Associate Professor at San Antonio College and a studio artist at the Southwest School of Art.

Innocent Age deals with the idealization of childhood photos vs. the realities of childhood. The idea for this series came from a local news story about a little boy who’d been locked in a closet and starved to death by his family. However, in a school photo, the little boy was flashing the biggest smile I’d ever seen; he looked happy. The childhood photo completely contradicted this little boy’s reality, proving again that a photo isn’t proof of anything.

Since I’ve always doubted the veracity of photos, I wasn’t surprised by this. But it did compel me to create a visual reconsideration of childhood. Included are re-contextualized photos of various children, known and unknown; clothing; toys; photos from Kiddie Park; and masks children wear: the mask a child shows a parent for the sake of survival or a mask the parent places on the child by name-calling. These ‘memories’ are divided into roses and grass: happy childhoods and those less joyful.

Artist/photographer Kathy Vargas was born in San Antonio, Texas and received her MFA, with a concentration in Photography, from the University of Texas at San Antonio in 1984.
She has had one person exhibits at Sala Uno in Rome, Galeria Juan Martin in Mexico City, Centro Recoleta in Buenos Aires, and a retrospective at the McNay Art Museum in San Antonio. Group shows include Hospice : A Photographic Inquiry a national traveling exhibit commissioned by the Corcoran Gallery, Washington DC, and Chicano Art : Resistance and Affirmation (CARA). She is in the collections of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Toledo Art Museum, the Mexican Museum in San Francisco, and the Sprint Collection. She was named 2005 Texas Two-Dimensional Artist of the Year by the Texas Commission on the Arts. Kathy Vargas is presently Associate Professor of the Art Department at the University of the Incarnate Word.

Focusing on process, experimentation is the catalyst for Retake, this year’s Fotoseptiembre exhibit at SAY Sí. Using a wide variety of photo transfer, visual distortion and experimental photography/drawing techniques, students will explore and expand the power of the image conceptually and physically. SAY Sí’s Media Arts student use new ways of reflecting, manipulating, applying, attaching and printing the photographic image, to explore the meaning of capturing an idea with an entirely different perspective. Taking from this approach SAY Sí’s Visual Arts students tease the line between print and drawing with large mixed media works.

The San Antonio Museum of Art will exhibit 50 photographs from Danny Lyon’s seminal series, The Bikeriders. The photographs are recent and promised gifts to SAMA from Ernest Pomerantz and Marie Brenner. Completed in 1968, The Bikeriders is comprised of photographs that Lyon took from 1963-67 while a member of the Chicago Outlaws Motorcycle Club. At the time, it was rare for a documentary photographer to immerse himself so fully in the activities and lifestyle of his subjects. Lyon cared very much about his fellow bikers, and portrayed them in a candid yet sympathetic manner. Lyon went on to become widely recognized for his gritty pictures of “good people who never had a chance”. In addition to the Southern Civil Rights Movement and motorcyclists, he has photo-documented death row inmates, street kids, and the changing urban landscape of lower Manhattan. Self-taught, Lyon was quickly recognized by other photographers and major curators for his searing vision or, as Lyon calls it, “Bleak Beauty”. Over the years, Lyon has published seminal books and produced a number of films. Today he is considered an important influence on contemporary photographers such as Nan Goldin and Larry Clark.

Thomas Dodd is an Atlanta/Nashville-based photographer and digital artist whose work blurs the lines between photography and classical art. His photographic images seamlessly blend the worlds of fantasy and surrealism and have been featured in magazines, on book covers, and in art galleries around the world.

In Dodd’s words: I have always been fascinated with the inner being, the hidden forces that propel us through life and which have been codified and represented in countless cultures through myths and legends. My portraits seek to reveal these hidden forces using primarily the representation of the feminine form and also through referencing the look and feel of classic art from the Symbolist and Pre-Raphaelite eras.

The method I use in my work is something I call “Painting With Photography”, through a technique called masking that I employ in photo-editing software. I stack, layer, and blend different photos together to create a final image that looks much more like an oil painting than a photograph. When the image is printed, I often mount it on wood panels and then paint over the print with finishing gel or beeswax – this is a method called photo encaustic painting and it gives a tangible texture on top of the photograph. I view my work as an organic composite of elements and always strive for the end result to be both beautiful and thought provoking.

Photographer Fadela Castro is joined by visual artists Andy Benavides, Richard Clark, Jim Keller, Linda Lang, Maggie Looney, Laura Mijangos, Cindy Palmer, Antonia Richardson, Ann Duffy-Randall, Missi Smith, Susan Straus, and Sandra Whitby.

Geoff Winningham began photographing the popular fiestas of Mexico in 1984. Returning to the same Mexican villages several times a year, he formed personal relationships with families who permitted him to photograph them in the intimacy of their homes, and local officials who gave him special access to all phases of the celebrations. The fiestas provide tangible links to the pre-Hispanic cultures of middle America, intertwining some of the great pagan festivals of these ancient peoples with Catholic ritual and tradition.

In addition to the photographs, books will be available. The book has 3 essays by Nobel Prize winner, J. M. G. LeClezio, and an introduction by Richard Rodriguez.

At the opening reception, the identities of the photographers and artists –and their works–will be revealed to each other, and to the public.

Included in the exhibit are faculty, staff and students of Northwest Vista College as well as local professional artists.

Alchemy in medieval times referred to transmuting common elements into gold, combining seemingly incompatible elements to create a cohesive whole.

Our Alchemy joins together various perspectives presented in silver gelatin prints. We each see the world differently, yet our individual visions reflected in the black and white images come together in presenting lands and imagination to produce a new element. We hope the viewer discovers in our work a shared, and possibly even new experience of honoring the environment through the universal language of light and shadow.

We are an active group of female artists who have worked side by side sharing darkroom space for over eight years, and we are unified by our love of black and white photography. Our processes and outcomes are varied and involve everything from plastic cameras to mixed media. We are united, however, in our use of film, darkroom techniques and silver gelatin printing. The paper we print on is coated with a gelatin emulsion containing silver, and when exposed to light under an enlarger and then processed in chemical solutions, the silver produces a rich black. The luminous tonal range is our pallete.

Our Alchemy results from combining the creations of our individual fields of interest and subject matter with the magic of silver.
