Tara Bogart
Trisha. From the series “A Modern Hair Study”
Edition of 10. Printed 2014
Archival pigment print, 10 x 8 in.
$350 Benefactor print

Tara Bogart’s “A Modern Hair Study” series was inspired by “Hair Study” by Felix Nadar – a 19th century photograph that depicts just a woman’s back and her hair. Created in similar fashion, Bogart’s elegant portraits of young women force the viewer to appreciate all of the peripheral things that make each woman unique. They profile the ways in which women adorn and modify themselves, which often indicate the timeless struggles of young adults with their own ideology and individuality.

Tara Bogart lives in Milwaukee, WI. “A Modern Hair Study” has been shown at the Catherine Edelman Gallery, Chicago; Hous Projects, New York, NY; and Portrait Society Gallery, Milwaukee, among other venues. She is represented by Hous Projects, NY.

“I find that each image has a story, sometimes obvious and other times hidden. My goal is to bring that story to life, to give a viewer reason to pause and be touched by a thought, a memory, or an emotion.”

Karen Kirkpatrick constructs images that convey the innate serenity and spirituality of nature. Having developed an experienced eye in the darkroom for the interplay of light and shadow on structure and form, she has added digital elements to her photographic tool kit that emphasize color in expressing mood and emotion.

Karen earned a BFA from the University of Colorado. She is a long time member of CPAC whose work has been shown across the country and internationally, and regularly wins People’s Choice awards at CPAC member shows.

Inspired by the works of Rene Magritte, Salvador Dali, and others, Loretta Young-Gautier developed an early fascination with Surrealism. Darkroom manipulation became the focus in her work while studying with Denver photographers Ronald W. Wohlauer and Ray Whiting in the early 1980s. A later workshop with multiple image master Jerry N. Uelsmann inspired further exploration.

Photographs by Loretta Young-Gautier have been shown in numerous group and solo shows and are part of private, corporate and museum collections nationwide. Her images have appeared in Photo Review, Icon, Masterpiece Magazine, The Photographers Market and Passion Press. A Colorado native, Loretta is formerly associate director of The Camera Obscura Gallery in Denver. She lives in Indian Hills, CO.
