Bruce Panock

I am primarily a landscape photographer. My attention is drawn to the
intimate details of the landscape. I separate these subjects from their
environment and create scenes that are based on memories, dreams,
feelings and emotions. Labels are unimportant to me. I see lines and
patterns, shadows and light, and accentuate these lines and patterns,
making them the subject of the photograph. My intention is to create
with the viewer a moment of pause and reflection; a moment to digest
the image and find their own story in the art.

Janet Pumphrey

I began my life-long love of photography in college when I took
my first photography course. I set up a dark room in the walk-in
closet of my first apartment in New Orleans, and my goal was to
be a professional photographer. My first jobs included working in
a photography store, then an art gallery, then as manager of the
art gallery.

Doane Perry

Doane Perry is a cultural anthropologist, photographer, and writer
who specializes in travel, ethnographic and Berkshire-centric photography.
Doane’s anthropology photographs and other photographs have been in
exhibitions at Rhode Island College, The Greek Institute in Cambridge, Cambridge Friends Meeting, and many exhibits with the Guild of Berkshire Artists. In the Berkshires, Doane continued photography as a contributing photographer and writer for the West Stockbridge Local Yokel and the Richmond Record, until he became a member of the West Stockbridge Select Board. Doane created photographs and Facebook pages for the Guild of Berkshire Artists and other organizations in the Berkshires.

To participate: Members should email Michele Caplan at mdwcap@gmail.com with one or two pieces of their work that they like, and one or two they are not finished with and want suggestions. Members will show only one piece of work at our meetings so we have time to really think about them and talk about them. The work will be shared on the screen, not by holding it up on zoom, so it can be seen well. Members should submit their work at least the day before to Michele’s gmail.

Please read below “Elements of Positive Critique”. A printable PDF version can be found (“Elements of Positive Critique pdf ) before the 7:30 p.m. meeting.

Jill Gustavis: Meet the Artist  
Tuesday, July 26, 2022 3:00 PM Eastern Time (Eastern) - 4:30 PM Eastern Time (Eastern)
On Zoom

Please join Jill Gustavis for a Meet the Artist Event with the Guild of Berkshire Artists.
 

Jill is a lifelong and self taught artist who currently focuses on watercolors. Many of her subjects include botanicals, landscapes, and still lifes depicted in a style that ranges from realistic to expressive. She is a Pittsfield native who now resides in Hancock with her husband and 2 cats and enjoys plein air painting along with hiking and biking.
 

"I strive to create pieces that are expansive yet intimate, using color and value that push the sense of presence for the viewer. My goal is less to create a realistic depiction of a specific scene and more of a real connection to
the energy of the moment. In turn, like a visual gratitude practice, paying
close observation to these moments, and studying their personalities, cultivates a genuine love of the constant flow of beauty in everyday life."

Positive Critique  
Tuesday, July 26, 2022 7:30 PM Eastern Time (Eastern) - 8:30 PM Eastern Time (Eastern)
On Zoom


Join Michele Caplan and other Members on second and fourth Tuesdays 7:30-8:30pm.
Share art work and get positive feedback.


To participate: Members should email Michele Caplan at mdwcap@gmail.com with one or two pieces of their work that they like, and one or two they are not finished with and want suggestions. Members will show only one piece of work at our meetings so we have time to really think about them and talk about them. The work will be shared on the screen, not by holding it up on zoom, so it can be seen well. Members should submit their work at least the day before to Michele’s gmail.
 

Please read below “Elements of Positive Critique”. A printable PDF version can be found (“Elements of Positive Critique pdf ) before the 7:30 p.m. meeting.
