Bob Johnston Memorial Photography Show and
Bob Johnston spent his life with a camera and the Cooperative Gallery 213 is
honoring his photography with a Memorial Photography Show and Competition,
opening on First Friday. The submissions from over 2 dozen photographers
working in color, black and white, film and digital will be judged by
professional photographer, Dave Williams of Beyond the Print.
Using Johnston's own words as the criteria he will pick "Judge's Choice for
a cash award: "Another part of our reaction (to a photo) depends on the
subject matter itself. Based on our lifetime experiences and our imagination
we may feel the excitement and perceived danger of a trip through thunderous
rapids, the god-like view from the top of a mountain, the quiet of a walk in
the woods, the joy of spring, the stimulation of people in action, or the
quiet calm of winter snow. For me, the successful photograph is one in which
both the abstract elements and the subject matter of the image reinforce
each other to provide an emotional experience for the viewer."
The Cooperative Gallery 213 is a long standing established gallery of
regional artists on Artists Row, State Street, the hub of the art
renaissance in downtown Binghamton. The gallery, a popular stop on the First
Friday Art Walk sponsored by Gorgeous Washington Assoc., is open Fridays
from 3-6 pm and Saturdays from 12-4 pm. For more information go to
