Caponigro Arts recently announced fine art photographer John Paul Caponigro's annual open studio exhibition. This highly anticipated event happens for two days only August 4th and 5th from 9-5 with artist's talks at 2 pm in Cushing, Maine.
John Paul enjoys an international reputation as an authority on changing technology and the arts. Happy to call Maine his home, he also travels to diverse regions to produce his work.
This year's new work, exhibited during this event for the first time ever, is drawn from materials produced on his most recent voyage to Antarctica in February 2007. Like his previous work, this new work is concerned with subjects fast becoming critical issues of our time water resource management and climate change.
It is also concerned with the important issues of changing practices due evolving technology within the medium of photography and the arts in general. This event presents a dual exhibit of minimally-altered photographs produced on site (most of which are suitable for journalistic use) and highly-altered images produced from similar material at a later date in his studio that expands the boundaries of the medium for expression within the arts.
Initially, a portion of this work will only be seen online at www.johnpaulcaponigro, where you can view many more images, read about his work, and will soon be able to hear the artist speak.
John Paul's website is an information rich resource that draws more than 35,000 visitors a month with a complimentary electronic newsletter that more than 8000 people subscribe to.
