Photography Workshop Online Exhibiton
During PhotoSummer 2016, 516 ARTS offered a 4-week photography workshop designed for teens and adults interested in exploring their creativity through portraiture, landscape/urbanscape, and abstract photography. Participants used photographs on display in the exhibitions at 516 ARTS as a point of departure for creating their own series of images.
Paige Taylor, Programs and Education Coordinator at 516 ARTS, led the workshop as part of PhotoSummer 2016, which included three exhibitions at 516 ARTS:
Starn Brothers: Absorption of Light
As We See It: Contemporary Native American Photographers
516 ARTS is pleased to present a collection of the images made during the workshop selected by the workshop participants: Abdiel Beltran Lopez, Greer Hobbs, Mary Hobbs, Sophia Hobbs, Graciela Poore, Karen Rowe, Rebecca Schreiber, Alia Schreiber-Goldstein, and Lee Urbina.
This event was part of PhotoSummer 2016, a collaborative initiative that strives to represent and actively promote historical and contemporary photography in New Mexico. Taking the rich legacy of photography in New Mexico as a point of departure, the exhibitions and public programs around PhotoSummer embodied the continued energy and support of the photographic arts in the region. Organized by UNM Art Museum, 516 ARTS and CENTER, PhotoSummer 2016 featured a series of exhibitions, talks, workshops and events in Albuquerque and Santa Fe.
