Kayenta Art Exhibit

Photography – Pushing Boundaries

Pushing Boundaries Exhibit Details

Center for the Arts at Kayetna is honored to host the Kayenta Arts Festival. “Pushing Boundaries” is a photography show that entices photographers to look at things a bit differently, to try a new technique, to take risks with their photos. The show opened on March 4th with a reception catered by Victoria Topham of Petite Feast–Victoria really tempted us by pushing the boundaries of her flavorful combinations!
 
“Pushing Boundaries” will be on exhibit until Wednesday, April 29th.  All of the amazing photos are for sale (with 25% of the proceeds going to the Kayenta Arts Foundation and the Center for the Arts at Kayenta). We hope you enjoy viewing the amazing work our local artists create.

The Jurors of “Pushing Boundaries”

Alan Holben

I’ve had a camera in my hands since about age 7, when I first picked up my mom’s Kodak Instamatic and starting burning through film. After a couple of years in college pursuing a degree in photography, I lost my way for many years and wrote software for a living. The digital revolution in cameras reignited my passion for photography and I fell in love all over again. Since 2007, I’ve covered sports professionally, from elementary school kids learning soccer and tee-ball to college sports. Since we moved from Michigan to Utah in 2016, I have concentrated more on landscape and wildlife photography. However, I still cover sports here, including the Huntsman Games and the Ironman Triathlon. I’ve also become active in the local arts scene, covering events at The Center for the Arts at Kayenta and the Electric Theater for Kayenta, The Stage Door, St. George Dance, and St. George Opera.

I am represented by Gallery 837 in Coyote Gulch Art Village, Ivins.

Joseph Ray

Joe Ray spent his early years living in three countries on three continents, spending most of his adult life in Oklahoma and Texas before moving to Utah in 2005.  He and Sue Gordhammer moved to Kayenta in 2018 where Joe fell in love with the incredible landscapes and the ever-changing skies.  Joe has been documenting his travels and outdoor activities with a camera since high school, and in college his friends came to dread the inevitable question – hey, want to see some of my slides? 

“I like to catch familiar scenes in a new way.  It’s hard to resist a beautiful landscape or cityscape but I like to pull part of the scene out of the whole and present it in an unexpected way.  Plus, with digital photography there are new ways to process images that push the boundaries of what constitutes a photograph.” 

Joe’s photographs have been used to illustrate his environmental consulting company’s publications, and he is honored to be a part of the Kayenta Arts Foundation’s show.
