Photography and Sculpture Show

from: http;//shastaartscouncil.org

Currently showing at the Shasta County Arts Council gallery are large-scale photography by Dennis Halkides and stone, wood and metal sculpture by Lucius Upshaw. The show runs through June 30, 2017.

Says photographer Halkides: “I don’t see myself as a mere “recorder” of what is. I see a subject that interests me and try to identify why it caught my attention…then try to envision what I can make from it…For the most part, my finished print is not an accurate depiction of what was there, but rather what I wanted it to be. If that were not the case, I’d be of no purpose as a photographic artist.”

Upshaw says about his sculpture” “I often choose people and animals as a vehicle to create new interesting shapes with varying degrees of realism. My art is meant to be enjoyed both in its form and concept. I want to create pieces that will inspire my audience. My work is always based on the idea of lasting beauty.”

Gallery hours: Tue-Thu, noon – 5 p.m.; Fridays, noon – 6 p.m.; 4th Saturday of month – 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
