September 10—October 13, 2015 Reception: September 19th 1:00–4:00PM KSP Gallery
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.

The Club, 50-years old with close to 90 members, meets twice a month on Monday evenings in Saratoga. We share our images, both print and digital, in friendly competition with an outside judge and engage in special educational programs that feature an certain aspect of photography.

June 5—August 4, 2015 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.
June 11—July 8, 2015 Reception: June 20th 1:00–4:00PM KSP Gallery
Beginnings I 2015 represents the journey of some of the earliest members of the Richard Dischler Photo Workshops conducted in Palo Alto at Keeble & Shuchat Photography.
In mid-2009, Richard Dischler launched his first Previsualization Workshop at Keeble & Shuchat Photography. Dischler aimed to help budding photographers find and hone their inner photographic vision. Since that time, many of the workshop’s photographers have been published, exhibited in galleries and museums, and captured numerous prizes—both national and international.
This exhibit includes images taken by a few of the earliest members of the Dischler workshops whose abilities have matured over the years. Their work validates the unique creative process Dischler has developed and nurtured since the launch of the workshops six years ago.
The exhibit will be on display from June 11, 2015 through July 8, 2015.
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.
