Member Rebecca Carpenter will be the featured speaker at the April 10 meeting. She will discuss creating a photographic series, including the steps she takes to initiate an idea, build a cohesive series around the theme, and incorporate multi-media with photography: collage, photographic transfers, sculpture, etc.
Currently, Becky is working on four series using both photography and mixed media, including METAMORPHIS, a simple look at the parallels of women's lives and butterflies. Another is a Fine Art Figure series in which women interact with form, light, and space. The third series is also a Fine Art Figure photographic series called DUALITY, in which she looks at the figure in intriguing spaces where the figure is in two distinctly different poses within the same space. The fourth series is a mixed media series of abandoned spaces, titled WHISPERS, in which she tells a visual story of life within an abandoned space.
