The Arts Alliance of Georgia Hosting Photo Exhibit
On Friday, June 29 th, the Arts Alliance of Georgia (AAoG) in Woodstock is sponsoring an exhibit and book signing of the new photographic portfolio by the fine arts photographer, René Gallet, at their new Studio 101. This recently published photography portfolio book, ‘Garden Visions’ is a new and unique photographic portfolio celebrates the mystery, beauty, and magic of the flora, ornaments, and details of the gardens of the Southern garden -- Everyone is invited!
This series of images, in development for over two years, is a significant departure from René's customary imagery and style. Each of the giclée images is printed on fine art papers and edited in a painterly style, making many of them hard to distinguish from watercolor prints or oil painted creations.
At the event, René will have copies of his latest portfolio book, 'Garden Visions' available for review and signing. He will also be previewing a new collection of hand printed note cards featuring the images in this series and some that have been published in his previous publications and exhibits.
Mr. Gallet has been actively involved in both the art and the business of photography for over fifty years. Initially a self taught photographer, Mr. Gallet has taught and participated in numerous workshops and seminars. Mr. Gallet's images have been published in numerous technical journals, photographic periodicals, and commercial publications. Each of Mr. Gallet's prints are hand edited, printed, finished, and mounted to museum standards in accordance with American National Institute Standards (ANSI) requirements for photographic archival permanence and image stability. Mr. Gallet has also published a series of coffee table book featuring many of his portfolios. Mr. Gallet's extensive image collections can be viewed at http://www.renegallet.com/.
Linda Boyer, president of the AAoG, said "These exciting photographs are a excellent example of the talent and creativity that exists among the numerous artists that reside in Cherokee County. This book signing at Studio 101 and this opening reception will be a celebration of the creation of a unique cultural asset for all of Cherokee County. Everyone is invited to join us at this gala to help kick-off this exciting project."
All of the giclée photographs on display at the exhibit will be available for purchase with a portion of the purchase price being donated by the photographer to support the creation, development and growth of Studio 101, the AAoG's new educational and gallery location.
