October's Members' Show features Richard Newman's "Photography on Metal"
A wine and cheese Artists' Reception in conjunction with Gearhart ArtWalk will be held on Saturday, October 1, from 2-5 pm to mark the opening of this show.
Richard Newman is the featured artist for October at Trail’s End Art Gallery in Gearhart. His work titled “Photography on Metal,” will include his most recent photos printed on aluminum. Along with other members’ work, the show will be open through the month of October. The public is welcome to browse the gallery featuring all-new monthly exhibits of oil paintings, watercolors, acrylics, photography, collage, cards and gifts. The gallery is open 11-3 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday.
Newman grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, and now lives in Beaverton and Gearhart, Oregon. As a kid growing up, he always loved the photographs in Life magazine. These pictures reached out from all parts of the world and showed both the beauty in landscapes as well as the reality of life. The one person Richard admired the most was Ansel Adams who exclusively worked in Black and White and took scenic photographs of the Western United States.
In high school and college Newman was a photographer for his newspaper and year book. In his senior year of high school he was the Assistant Photographer for the City of Cleveland and learned the fine art of photography and darkroom applications. After graduating from college, he entered the business world in fabric and design as a store manager, consultant and sales manager. His love of photography never faded and when the digital age of photography started, he traded in his old 35mm camera. He currently uses a Nikon 810 with various lenses to capture his photographs and Apple computer to catalog and artfully compose them.
Richard especially likes to take pictures of landscapes, nature, sports and historical objects. He is fascinated in the various textures that nature has provided allowing him to bring these objects to print. He uses various types of media to show the details of his work. Currently, Richard enjoys using aluminum, glass and wood to enhance the composition of his work for people to enjoy! "Photography is not a job for me, it is a passion for capturing memories.”
Richard has been to Europe ten times and visited 29 countries, providing the settings for some of his best photographs. In addition, he travels the entire western United States taking pictures while he enjoys the outdoors and nature. Once photographed, all of his finishing work is done on his computer in Beaverton.
Currently, Richard is the President of Trail’s Ends Art Association. His Photograph of a DC3 on aluminum received first place in the annual judged show in 2016. His photographs are hung in various coffee shops in Beaverton, and he has developed his own website located at www.window-to-the-world-photography.com. His photographs of the Bridge of Sighs and the Leaning Tower of Pisa in black and white were sold to ABC television and used on the Criminal Minds TV show. In addition, his photographs are also offered on Etsy under the shop Newman48.
When asked what he likes best about his work, Newman had several thoughts. “What I try to do is capture the images in an artistic way by composition or by enhancing them on the computer to offer a new perspective. Photography has moved from just taking the family pictures to that of an art form using a camera and a lens like an artist uses a pallet and brush. It is the individual who has the eye to compose the art work so others may enjoy their efforts.”
Plan to come on Saturday, October 1, and ask Richard questions you might have about how he develops his photography. The Trail’s End Gallery is located at 656 A Street, in Gearhart, Oregon. New members are always welcome. Call 503-717-9458 for more information.
