ImageMakers members at PGAC – Sept 2 – Oct 27

IM members, Mary Aiu, Susan Hillyard, Oliver Klink, and Robin V. Robinson are featured in “Wildlife Beyond Borders,” a photography exhibition that shows animals in their natural state. Some images in the exhibit are enabled with a technology called “Augmented Reality.” When the viewer points their smart device at an image, behind the scene stories created by the artist start playing. The viewer gets to know the artist and discover what it takes to be a fine art and wildlife photographer. The show at the Pacific Grove Art Center runs September 2nd – October 27th, with the opening reception on September 2nd, 7-9pm.
