Artist talks


The Art Junction sponsors many events like artist talks.  The Art Junction was thrilled to have Amanda Kiplinger, local photographer from Polk, Ohio, speak and present her photographic work Buckeye Landscapes at the Art Junction. Amanda shared her passion and interest in photography, which began when she picked up her first camera at the age of twelve. Amanda states in her biography: “Growing up on a dairy farm in Ashland County gave me many opportunities to photograph landscapes, my favorite subject. While other teenagers were busy taking pictures of their friends making goofy faces, I was trying to imitate my favorite landscape photographer, Ansel Adams. Several years later I decided to make my love of photography into a profession.”  Maybe you can join us for a future event at the Art Junction!

She has had solo exhibits including one at the National Center for Nature Photography in Toledo.  Amanda has exhibited her images throughout North-Central Ohio, most recently with the Ohio All Media Juried Exhibit at the Coburn Gallery at Ashland University. Amanda not only photographs the landscape, she also writes about nature. She has had many articles with supporting photographs published in Nature Photographer Magazine, as well as photographs only published in Cobblestone Magazine, Michigan-Out-of-Doors, Wyoming Elements, Heart of Ohio Magazine and Truth Consciences Magazine.  Two galleries represent Amanda: the Creative Chateau in Ashland, Ohio and Art 101 Gallery in Medina, Ohio.  Join us to view Amanda’s wonderful images of the beautiful Buckeye State!

Digital Photography Club


Last month at the Digital Photography Club local photographer, Matt Ramsey, spoke to the group about lighting and basic operational techniques with digital cameras.  Matt’s information was very helpful to everyone in the group.  We hope to have him return soon.


This month we will discuss photographing indoors versus outdoors as everyone will have the opportunity to have some hands-on experience with these types of photographic settings. 


Jen Wall from the Extension Library District of Huron County will be here to give a presentation on the up-coming photography contest the library will be sponsoring.


The next meeting will be Thursday, May 2, 2013 at the Art Junction from 7:00-8:00 pm. 

Kevin Casto, Director of the Art Junction, will be facilitating this meeting.
