Greetings,

It’s a busy time for us. I have just finished the darkroom work for my upcoming exhibition at the Center for Photographic Art. Anne and I are now working on completing the mounting, matting, spotting, and framing of the show. The exhibition will be installed in the next few days, and opens to the public this Saturday, July 3. Along with favorite photographs of mine that go back more than thirty-five years, I am including several never before seen images in the show.

On Saturday, July 10, I will be presenting a lecture on my work, followed by an opening reception, book signing, and print raffle. All of the above events are free and open to the public. We are pleased and flattered that a number of friends are coming in from out of town for the festivities at the CPA. You can find out more information about the exhibit, as well as the Saturday, July 10 events below.

Anne and I have donated an 11x14" print of my image Black Oak, Fallen Branches, Plate 33 in my book Listen to the Trees, for a raffle to benefit the Center for Photographic Art. I am hoping that those who are not able to attend the July 10th events will call the Center and purchase tickets for the print raffle. You can find details about the print raffle below, along with a reproduction of the image.

I also wanted to let readers know about an exciting exhibition, Ansel Adams: Portrait of America, Photographs from the Collection of Anne Adams Helms, on display at the Monterey Museum of Art from July 10 through October 3, 2010. I have included more details about the exhibit in the information below.

I am hopeful that those who might be in Carmel to see my exhibition will make the short trip to Monterey to see the Ansel Adams exhibition, and vice versa (I suspect there will be a lot more people going to see the Ansel Adams exhibition than my show!!!).

Finally, I wanted to let you know about my upcoming exhibition and lecture at the Ansel Adams Gallery later this summer. There is additional information below.

All the best,

John


 

JOHN’S RETROSPECTIVE EXHIBITION AT CENTER FOR PHOTOGRAPHIC ART
OPENING AND LECTURE JULY 10

I am pleased to announce that my traveling retrospective exhibition John Sexton: A Photographer’s Journey will be on display at the Center for Photographic Art in Carmel, California from July 3 through August 27, 2010. The last time I had a large exhibition of my work in my own “backyard” was my exhibition at the Monterey Museum of Art in 1994. I am looking forward to having the opportunity to share images with my many photographic friends and neighbors here on the Monterey Peninsula. If your travel plans will bring you to this area, I hope you will take the opportunity to come by and see the exhibition.

On Saturday, July 10, I will be presenting a lecture and book signing from 2:00 to 4:00 pm, which will be followed by an opening reception in the gallery from 4:00 to 6:00 pm. Both events are free and open to the public. Included in the exhibition and presentation will be some new images, as well as earlier photographs from my more than thirty-five year career in photography. During the lecture I will illustrate the evolutionary process of some of the images from the negative to the finished print, exploring a number of the creative controls I use in making my silver gelatin photographs. In addition, I will show some unique Ansel Adams images and discuss his influence on my photography. A book signing will be held following the lecture.

During the opening reception there will be a raffle for one of my 11x14" original silver-gelatin prints valued at $1,000. All proceeds will benefit the Center for Photographic Art. Additional information about the print raffle can be found below.

A portion of this exhibition was on display at Oregon State University in 2009. The exhibition will be traveling to other venues in the future, and announcements will be made in future issues of my newsletter.

I would like to thank Light Impressions, as well as Kodak Professional, for their support of this traveling exhibition, and Freestyle Photographic Supplies for their most generous support as the exclusive sponsor of exhibitions at the Center for Photographic Art.

You can learn about the exhibition, opening reception, print raffle, and lecture here. For more information about the Center for Photographic Art and their many programs check out their web site. I look forward to seeing a number of you on July 10.

ANSEL ADAMS: PORTRAIT OF AMERICA EXHIBITION AT MONTEREY MUSEUM OF ART

Ansel Adams: Portrait of America, Photographs from the Collection of Anne Adams Helms, will be on display from July 10 through October 3 at the Monterey Museum of Art, La Mirada facility. The Monterey Museum of Art is the exclusive West Coast venue for this exhibition of more than seventy of Ansel’s iconic images. It is a rare opportunity to see this collection of photographs from Ansel and Virginia’s daughter, Anne Adams Helms.

This exceptional collection of images is one of the complete Museum Sets that Ansel produced. Ansel began printing for the Museum Set project in July of 1979... the day before I started working as his photographic and technical assistant. I assisted Ansel in the darkroom on all of these prints. It was the largest single printing project Ansel undertook during his long photographic career.

There is a members only preview and opening reception on Thursday, July 8 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. In addition, the following day, Friday, July 9 is Members Only Day, and the La Mirada facility will be open from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm. You must be a Museum member to see the exhibition that day. The exhibition opens to the public on Saturday, July 10.

JOHN'S UPCOMING EXHIBITION AT THE ANSEL ADAMS GALLERY IN YOSEMITE

Speaking of exhibitions... I’m looking forward to my upcoming exhibition at The Ansel Adams Gallery in Yosemite National Park, which will be on display from August 18 to September 26, 2010. This exhibition will have an opening reception on Saturday, August 21 from 4:00 to 6:00 pm. I will also be presenting a lecture at the Yosemite Lodge at the Falls outdoor amphitheater at 8:30 pm that evening. If you’re looking for an excuse to come to beautiful Yosemite, it would be great to see you there. You can find additional information at The Ansel Adams Gallery web site.

I have been represented by The Ansel Adams Gallery since 1980, and have been fortunate to have had a number of exhibitions at the Gallery over the past thirty years. I am very pleased to have another opportunity to share my photographs at the Gallery, located in one of our very favorite places... Yosemite Valley
