"Night News" - an occasional missive from the darkness
|"Fortunately, art is a community effort - a small but select community living in a spiritualized world, endeavoring to interpret the wars and the solitudes of the flesh." - Allen Ginsberg|
The opening reception is THIS Thursday, January 14, 2010, 6:00-9:00pm at California Modern Gallery, 1035 Market Street, between 6th and 7th streets (be sure to bring your 'UrbEx" gear/rig) in San Francisco. From ArtSpan's Press Release: "Free and open to the public with complimentary snacks, poured wine from Artesa Vineyards & Winery, and specialty cocktails with Pernod Absinthe! Please note this is a 21+ event." See you there!
|The extended deadline for submissions to our latest online show, The Panocturnists is fast approaching - now January 30, 2010. Please consider entering work - this show promises to be another good one, judged by Chris Faust (www.chrisfaustphoto.com) and with your enthusiasm, participation, and support will lay the groundwork for a new, self-sustaining parallel Web site - www.thepanocturnists.com; a blog - http://thepanocturnists.blogspot.com/; and a Flickr group - http://www.flickr.com/groups/the_panocturnists/|
|Registrations are now being accepted for the Night Photography course, taught by Tim at the College of Marin, Kentfield campus, starting February 5, 2010. This is a seven-week course, and a perfect followup for those Nocturnists who have taken one or more workshops with The Nocturnes, in which one can 'stretch' out a bit - it's also good as an introduction to the topic of Night Photography (NPy). All the details are at http://marincommunityed.org/winter2010/course/photo.htm#night|
Alumni only - we would like give a "heads-up" about our 19th AlumNight
event (now twice-yearly again), to you, our illustrious Alumni. As usual, this
is partly a benefit for the Mare Island Historical Park Foundation, co-sponsored
by The Nocturnes Night Photography Web site, and held at locations on Mare Island.
Scheduled for the end of February - check your Inbox or the Web site in the
next few weeks for all the nocturnal details.
