The featured speaker at the first meeting of out 2019/2020 season will be Glenn Bloodworth:
A retired senior executive from the federal public service and the private sector, Glenn is a visual artist employing medium-format film & composite digital media. He holds a Diploma in Photographic Arts and Production from the School of the Photographic Arts: Ottawa [SPAO], and a Certificate in Photography Techniques from Algonquin College. Thematically driven by David Thoreau’s observation “It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see” and influenced by Hiroshi Sugimoto’s sense of ‘time exposed’, Walker Evan’s optic, and the aesthetic of the Düsseldorf School artists like Thomas Struth and Candida Höfer, Glenn’s art centers on visuals tonally and metaphysically textured, presenting the over-looked familiar and vernacular, encouraging viewers to comprehension and challenging them to insight, not only of what they are seeing but how they see. Glenn’s works are held in several public and private collections in Canada and abroad, including the City of Ottawa Art Collection.

The featured speaker at our meeting on December 7th will be Ginny Fobert.
ARTIST BIO My past has taken me in many different directions. From Real Estate and Interior Design, to desktop publishing, writing and editing, home building, project management, and event organizing to name a few. I have always wanted to be a photographer. One boring rainy day in 2011, I ventured out and purchased my first DSLR and just started pushing the shutter button.
M-Y-N-D in Icelandic means photo or image. ‘MYND’S I’ is the name of my photography site. I like that a photograph is made, not taken. It is made in your own mind and with your own eye, and it is slow and considered in its making. I believe that anyone can take a photo, but it takes a discerning eye, a sense of what is around you and a comprehension of how everything is reacting to the surrounding light sources to make a picture.
