Reception: January 31st 2:00–5:00PM
Artist’s Statement: My current Moments In Time endeavor is being exhibited at Keeble & Shuchat with the title of “Past, Present, and the Shape of Things to Come”. I expect this period to be an inflection point in the quality of my work, having recently taken Dick Dischler’s PreVisualization workshop, and now firmly believe that equipment and craft are secondary to “learning to see”. Since the exhibited images span this transition, I invite you to see if you can identify which images came from which side of the inflection (or just come and enjoy).
I have the good fortune of being able to travel broadly, and although the quality of the image is not dependent on the uniqueness of hard-to-reach places (even for landscapes), I enjoy the freshness that comes with pursuing beauty across three of the major continents covered in this exhibition.
Primarily dealing with fine art landscape and natural forms, I have been seeking a resonance with nature nearly all my life. This artistic pursuit seems so wonderful – to go immerse oneself in scenes of amazing beauty … and return with the ability to share that with others.

Reception: December 19th 2:00–5:00PM
The Palo Alto Camera Club (PACC) was founded in 1935 by a group of avid amateur local photographers. During those early years inspiration and role models included a group of 7 important California photographers such as Imogen Cunningham, Ansel Adams, and Edward Weston. In 1932 seven of these photographers formed one of the most famous and influential “camera clubs” in history—Group f/64. Their dominant medium was black and white film and large format cameras. They became masters of printing luminous black and white prints that set photography apart from oil painting as an art medium.
Many changes have occurred since those early years of Group f/64 — color prints, digital cameras, video, and the ubiquitous selfies among them — but the unique attributes of a beautiful black and white print remain unchanged. It is in this tradition that we offer black and white prints made by members of the PACC in celebration of our 80th anniversary year.
Come in, appreciate our portfolio, and recall the “ black and white print” art form that is most uniquely associated with photography as fine art.

Reception: November 21st 1:00–4:00PM
Artist’s Statement: As Edward Weston once said, “anything that excites me for any reason, I will photograph; not searching for unusual subject matter, but making the commonplace unusual.” This exhibit, titled “Of Mere Being”, is a selection of my abstract black and white and color prints that celebrate form, texture and motion in the world around us. For me, the successful image is one that evokes an emotional response each time it is seen – a mystery without end.
I have been photographing for over 30 years working in both the commercial and fine art areas. My fine art images have won awards at the San Mateo County Fair and at Art in the Redwoods, and they are in private collections across the United States.

|October 15—November 10, 2015
Reception: October 17th 1:00–4:00PM
Artists Statement: This photographic exhibition of prints entitled “47 Views” is a selection of color and black and white prints, in 16×20 salon mounts with a single white mat overlay. The presentation represents digital photographic work that occurred primarily in the last ten years. My artist intent is fine art landscape prints but I have included other subject matter as well. The majority of my work is in black and white prints because I especially enjoy working with the drama, mood, textures, and sense of light that is conveyed in that medium.
A third of the prints represent work completed in the last eighteen months after moving to Nevada from California. Most have never been shown in print to the public.
All of the art was printed in my studio using Harman 320 gms, Gloss Baryta, 100% Alfa-Cellulose, Fine Art Media, paper using an Epson R2400 printer with K3 inks. In the end it’s all about the print so please come to the exhibition.
Thanks for your interest in my work and feel free to contact me on RonaldSaunders.com
|September 10—October 13, 2015
Reception: September 19th 1:00–4:00PM
Artists Statement: I have been photographing since I was 14 years old. I take primarily black and white images. Today I still use film for specific situations, but I use digital most of the time. My photographs are in the context of Street Photography, urban landscape, the urban environment and travel photography.
The photographs in this exhibition are a collection from several of my portfolios and projects. Photography is my way to communicate and express my inner feelings and emotions. The images are the visual expression of my feelings. I choose subjects that give me a sense of peace, tranquility and solitude. The images speak for themselves and I hope the viewers will take something from these images with them.

Reception: June 20th 1:00–4:00PM
KSP Select Gallery
Artists Statement: Magical places conjure both physical locations as well as spiritual spaces. So they can be exterior and interior journeys. They offer a chance to connect with a unique place, diverse people, unusual perspectives, and different ways of going about life.
These images offer a journey into an interior landscape, made possible by our effort in navigating distant lands, meeting new peoples, enjoying exotic foods, and discovering our similarities while celebrating our differences.
On display are images from Bali, Indonesia & Oaxaca, Mexico.
We hope that these images will inspire and invite you to embark on a personal journey of exploration into your own soul and to those mystical places that resonate in your own heart.
Please join photographers Charles Mujie and Michael Palma for a reception on June 20th from 1 to 4pm.
The exhibit will be on display from June 5, 2015 through August 4, 2015.
