Silver Light: Fifty Photographs by Randall Ranger Solo Exhibition and Opening Reception
March 2018 at Arts Visalia
In March 2018, Arts Visalia is pleased to exhibit Randall Ranger. Randy is a black and white film photographer. In this exhibition, entitled Silver Light: Fifty Photographs, Randy focuses on photography as the search for exciting light revealing form, texture, and shape. Randy states, “When I’m photographing, the last thing I need is a camera. I wander about with my eyes and mind, free of preconceived ideas. My best photographs summon me, demanding their creation.” Randy’s interest in photography began in high school with a couple of basic photography classes. He became more involved in photography in the 1980s. After finding 35mm and medium format lacking, in 1993, Randy began to use a large format view camera which proved to be the best tool for his work. “View cameras require quiet deliberation which, for me, results in superior photographs. His films and fine prints are taken and developed transitionally in his own darkroom, which today, is a hard commodity to find in the field of photography. The exhibition runs from February 28th to March 30th. The opening reception will be held on First Friday, March 2nd, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and is sponsored in part by Bueno Beverage, Jack & Charlie’s, the Vintage Press Restaurante, the Southern Pacific Depot Restaurant, and Valley PBS’s Articulate with Jim Cotter. Arts Visalia will host an Artist Talk on Saturday, March 3rd at 2:00 p.m. Come enjoy an art conversation with Randall Ranger! For April, Arts Visalia will be exhibiting the Biennial Baskets and Gourds Show & Workshop.
