Good Bones showing at Waterfront Gallery

Good Bones showing at Waterfront Gallery

That’s only the beginning of the charm and scale of Good Bones, now on display at the Waterfront Gallery.

Good Bones showing at Waterfront Gallery

A circle of deer antlers, composed of perhaps 50-60 sets; installation pieces of pink and gold, and a mystery wall hanging that creates intrigue on the scale of The Da Vinci Code.  That’s only the beginning of the charm and scale of Good Bones, now on display at the Waterfront Gallery.

Good Bones indicates something solid, dependable, and for the common good. Artists were challenged to paint, assemble, and create their interpretation of Good Bones.  And so they did.  Approximately thirty artists have contributed to this latest show.

The Gala Opening took place Aug. 1, at the Waterfront Gallery with an introduction by Guest Speaker John Whitelaw, a retired pathologist, who has been interested in natural history since childhood.

He gave an inspiring talk about his photography. A latecomer to serious amateur photography, he has attended workshops by American landscape photographer Charles Cramer, wildlife photographer Frans Lanting, and master print-maker R. Mac Holbert.

Currently he is focused on ‘constructions/arrangements,’ and the Japanese aesthetic of ‘wabi-sabi’ (about the imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete). He has collaborated recently with Smithsonian ornithologists, using a novel technique to photograph difficult-to-see birds of the Neotropical understory.

He captures his images with a full frame digital camera, obligatorily lightly processed with Photoshop, and printed with an Epson inkjet printer. They are essentially ‘as shot.’

Everyone is welcome to view this show from noon to 4 p.m. daily and seven days a week throughout the summer months.  The show runs until Aug. 25.

Opening nights at the Waterfront Gallery are the first Saturday of every month, each featuring a unique speaker, plentiful appetizers, and of course the good will of the gallery goers. So mark your calendar.

Construction is currently underway at the gallery for installation of a new elevator, but that doesn’t detract from the quality of this show. So come on down and see Good Bones.
