About the artists
Emily Shore sings her own brand of jazz infused acoustic originals. Dexterous guitar playing, thick harmonies and captivating storytelling are her signature and make for a compelling and always fun evening of music.
Nancy Holliday is a local Berkeley photographer interested in a variety of photographic styles with a special interest in alternative printing and encaustics. Her work on metal has been applied to furniture and barn doors and her horse images printed on birch wood can be seen currently at her exhibit at the Tahoe Airport. Her work is also available through Riverside Studios in Truckee California
I became a fan of Mobile Photography not too long after buying my first iPhone. A friend introduced me to a few cool photo apps and I was hooked! I started playing with any app that gave me creative control beyond what was offered from the IOS generation. Next came apps that had color and focus preset, with image frames thrown in for good measure. The joy of it all!
The image you see here is of isolated flower or tree limbs photographed using the sky as a background, all edited in phone using creative photo aps. This combination gives me a great canvas to play with… And how I love to play!
North, of the Wall
On May 9 2012, we said goodbye to our pup Ollie. A dog that had ruled our world in good ways and very very hard ways for just over a year. Though he was but a baby himself, he simply wasn’t meant for this world. How were we to know in the midst of our deep grief that five days earlier a little bundle of fur and fluff and golden love had been born. A dog meant for us. A dog meant for this world. A friend to help us find our ‘happy’ again. Our North Star.
North not only helped us find our ‘happy’, he also helped me find a part of me that had been lost even longer.
I own a little camera store in Berkeley California, but the truth is that it owns me. Before I owned a business I made art, and I was good at it. Somedays I was great at it. Then I got busy and became responsible for the business, the staff, the community it supports and I had to put art aside. Then came North. Even though the business was busier than ever, I had a new responsibility… And now I had a muse.
These are pictures of my dog, my friend, my fur-baby child. They are personal and I never thought of them as ‘art’ for anyone other than me and my family. But I love them and they make me happy in a way that my ‘art’ never did. And if they make other people happy too then that makes them the best thing I’ve ever made.
I hope you enjoy them. I hope you enjoy him. I’m pretty sure he was put on this earth to make people happy and if one more person’s day was brightened with these pictures… job well done, my little North (of the wall).
Jessica Greaux’s photographic passion lies in using science and technology to give landscape a different perspective. She frequently finds herself observing clouds and light to find the perfect moment to shoot long exposures with a vast negative space. Minimalism, black and white, and infrared photography are just a few of her inspirations.
