Members Gallery: Prints: Shape and Texture By Ginger Werz-Petricka
April 28 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Shape and TextureByGinger Werz-PetrickaGinger joined NVPS in 2009 at a point in her life when she really needed to find a creative outlet. Over the years she has been involved with Members Gallery and Education and Training, but her special interest has always been the Portfolio Project.She has been interested in photography since high school and while studying for a fine arts degree in college concentrated on printmaking and photography as her media. Looking back at early images it has become evident that dramatic light, shape and texture has always been a driving force in her work. Ginger shot with a Canon 6D for several years, but after injuring her foot in 2017 has found that her light weight mirrorless Olympus OMD mark ll has become the camera of choice.“One of the first questions a photographer always seems to get is ‘What kind of photography do you do?’ My answer is, all kinds. I’m aware that some people think that a photographer needs to specialize, but if you see the world as shapes, textures, light and shadow, any subject is fair game. Perhaps the exceptions are that I’m not really interested in standing in the woods waiting for birds and animals to make that perfect shot. I love to get them when they’re cooperative…but.
For this collection I wanted to include some recent works illustrating the kind of images that make me want to pick up my camera.”
