Neal Swanson’s Artist Statement: I have had a ‘love affair” with photography for the past 40 years. Initially I worked in large format black and white film photography but with my transition to digital I am enjoying color as well. My interests are eclectic and include natural light photojournalism as well as surf, still life, and landscape photography.
This exhibit represents a sampler of recent work and includes a brief, very personal, photo journal of my granddaughter Maisy (born with several birth defects) during her first 8 months of life, surf scenes including images recorded with a very slow shutter speed, and a series of botanical images.

April 10 – May 12, 2015 Keeble & Shuchat Gallery
Mark Wainer’s Artist Statement: This exhibit is a “Sampler” consisting of images from nine of my portfolios. The portfolios are wide ranging including painterly images from the water’s edge, images from the streets of Viet Nam, images from Carnevale in Venice, black and white images of mannequins. These images were taken on three continents. I have been photographing for 50 years. A camera gives me license to explore. Like photographers everywhere, I use my camera to record the world as it appears to me from the perspective I choose. The more I look, the more I see. The more I see, the more I can visualize. My images represent what I saw or what I imagined it could be.
February 7–June 11, 2015 Reception: February 28th 1:30–5:00PM Peking Duck Restaurant
Harmony I 2015 represents the work of four photographers who have studied pre-visualization for two or more years with The Richard Dischler Photo Workshops conducted in Palo Alto at Keeble & Shuchat Photography.
These photographers and members of Dischler’s current and previous six month and one year pre-visualization workshops continue to receive public recognition for their work in juried and non-juried local, regional, national and international art and photography exhibits.
Richard Dischler Studied with Arthur Leipzig and was involved with the Ralph Weiss Workshop from 1976 to 1979. He was a member of J.A.M, the Jamaican Arts Mobilization group that was instrumental in the creation of Public Studio Project 1 that is now part of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, and a member of SoHo Photo. He has been published in Profile Magazine and exhibited at the Nippon Club, J.A.M. Galleries and various public galleries. His work is in public and private collections such as the Queens Museum of Art, the JCC Collection, and locations throughout New York. Dischler has been an instructor and juror of photography since 1976.
The photographers extend a warm thank you to Terry Shuchat of Keeble & Shuchat Photography, Jaff and Linda Szeto of the Peking Duck Restaurant, and their respective professional staff.
The exhibit will be on display from February 7, 2015 through June 11, 2015.
February 13–March 11, 2015 Reception: February 21 1:00–4:00PM Keeble & Shuchat Gallery
Artist’s Statement: I enjoy examining the objective, realistic, structural aspects of the subjects I photograph, whether those subjects are natural or man-made.
Since becoming interested in photography in my late teens, I have spent my photographic career capturing mostly the outdoors—landscapes, seascapes, animals, plants, water, airborne objects, stationary objects, buildings, food…pretty much anything but people. (In fact, I was going to call my website AnythingButPeoplePhotography.com…but I decided not to. You can find it at www.VisionByPixels.com.)
January 15–February 11, 2015 Reception: January 17th 1:00–4:00PM Keeble & Shuchat Gallery
Artist’s Statement: The set of images in this collection are a 15 year retrospective of my eye on the world. The visual symphony represented in these images awaken the spirit inside me and remind me of the beauty that exists all around us in its many shapes and forms.
As time goes by, the world changes and the way we see the world today may not be what we see tomorrow. Our continual evolution in life can sometimes shadow how we once viewed things and can cause us to lose touch with what is so great about this world. The amalgamation of lines, shapes, textures, and shades serve as a reminder to me of what is so beautiful about this world and I hope it does the same for you.
The work of photographer Mike Phaling is featured in the Keeble & Shuchat Learning Center Gallery through December 23rd.
Mike is showing Black and White images from from his body of work on Point Reyes.
