"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|
Our latest online exhibit, The Nocturnes: 20/Ten is now live! This show introduces a little diferent format than seen in our previous biennials, in that the final selections by the Jurors was limited to Twenty pieces by Ten artists - "Twenty/Ten." Why not have a look, or two - and let us know what you think, by leaving a comment on our Blog.
Registrations are now
being accepted for the Night Photography course, taught by Tim at the College
of Marin, Kentfield campus, starting February 4, 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 here.

Alumni only - we would like to give a "heads-up" about our 21st 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 February 26, 2011 - check your Inbox or The Nocturnes
site in the next few weeks for all the nocturnal details.

we want you to give you advance notice of a number of events to be held in 2011
- the 20th Anniversary of the founding of The
Nocturnes! We kick off the year-long festivities in January, with a
private dinner, held on Mare Island, honoring legendary Night Photographer/Educator
Steve Harper - some of the "usual suspects" will be doing some serious
planning for the rest of the year, so stay tuned! In-the-works are dual, East/Left
Coast exhibits of Alumni NPy, monthly full moon gatherings of the faithful (which
is where it all started, really), field trips, programs involving some of the
many early supporters of The Nocturnes Web site, and a few surprises!
Events already slated in 2011 include a number of co-op programs conducted with
Lance Keimig of TheNightSkye.com
(more details to follow) at Mojave desert and Eastern Sierra locations. Continue
to check BOTH Web sites for details.
