Exhibition Highlight: Pamela Fulcher's photographs are alluring, mesmerizing, and vibrant. They evoke emotion and will transport you. It is a joyful journey!

About Pamela Fulcher Photography: Pamela Fulcher is a freelance photographer currently based in Rockport Texas.

An appreciation for all art media started early with a visit to the Prado Museum Madrid as a child and progressively expanded in adulthood through formal education and exposure to work of other artists. An appreciation for art in nature and art in our daily lives guised as “life” also began early as her parents fostered a love to get “out and about” from the start. Pam earned a degree in Studio Art and Art Education from the State University of New York at Potsdam with a “focus” on photography. As a high school art teacher in New York and Arizona, her enthusiasm and infectious love of the subject matter was described as being equal parts inspiration and instruction by both students and faculty alike.

Teaching art and the many media of expression was truly fulfilling but the desire to create was stronger, leading Pam down a path of experimentation with everything from stained glass, pottery, oil painting, print making, graphic art and photography.

In photography and graphic art, Pam found a wide range of tools to express emotion that was underpinned by the basic elements of art (color, line, shape, form, value and texture). Using her classic art training and esthetic vision, she strives to create images that elicit emotion, tell stories or simply bring pleasure to the viewer.
As the medium has evolved from film to digital files and image post production has moved out of the darkroom and onto the computer, Pam has evolved with it, looking for new opportunities to create her unique images

Exhibition Highlight: Bill Clough's experience is vast and varied. His photos will draw you in, and as characteristic of great photographers, his curiosity will intrigue the viewer.

About Bill Clough: The older you get, the longer the biography.

I am 78 years old and have spent the last 59 years in journalism as a reporter, a photographer, a videographer or a broadcaster.

When I started at my first weekly newspaper in 1960 in Amarillo, in the first two weeks I realized that instead of taking pictures to accompany stories, I was writing words to accompany pictures.

In the ensuing years I have worked for the Houston Chronicle, the Dallas Times Herald, the Contact Press Agency in New York and for a host of weekly newspapers ranging from Dallas to Estes Park, Colorado.

I am a former White House correspondent for the late United Press International Radio Network. When I joined UPI, I put up the cameras. But, 20 years ago, I married Reba, who also is a photographer, and you see what happened.

I now am the editor of the Advance-Guard Press Goliad.

Throughout the years, when asked what I did for a living, I would answer “journalist” but in my mind I still answered “photojournalist.” Always, at base, it was photography.

Of all the photographs displayed, only two were taken on assignment. All the rest are what, during film days, we called “pictures at the end of a roll,” pictures taken only for ourselves.

When I started in photography, pictures only could be published in monochrome. I’ve lived long enough to see a craft transformed into an art form. As Canada’s premier photojournalist Ted Grant observes, “When you take pictures in color you photograph people’s clothes; when you take pictures in black and white, you photograph their souls.”

Exhibition Highlight: Jason Collins is an accomplished storyteller. He delights in composing a story with both words and images.

About Jason Collins:
My dabbling in the world of digital photography began some 15 years ago. As a journalist, I capture everyday events. As a photographer, I try to capture what others do not see in these everyday events.

A majority of the photos in this collection were shot in Beeville or within only a few minutes of the county line.
For me, photography is seeing what others overlook.
There is a game I play called “find the photo.”
The rules are simple. Pick a location — the college, a park or even a roadway to an assignment — and find something unique, fun or pretty and capture it on film.
My photographic training has been all hands-on.
I have learned from some of the best photographers around — both photojournalists and wildlife photographers. Since I began working in Beeville, I have won first place recognitions in South Texas, Gulf Coast and Texas Press Association contests.

My job as a newspaper reporter and photographer is to tell a story. It is more than writing the decisions of commissioners court and school boards. It’s about the people who walk the streets, shop in the stores and live in this county. It’s the volunteer who acts without thought of personal danger or gain. It’s the person whose life has taken many turns — some good and some bad. It’s the person whose passion for life can be seen by all who care to witness. My job is to find them and tell their stories.

In photos, I look for those moments that show the emotion being felt at that time. There is a passion in one’s eyes that can be seen if one takes the time to look. Some photos make you think, wishing you were there at that moment. Others are shot just for fun or for the appreciation of subtle beauty. The world is interesting if one takes the time to look beyond the obvious. A photo is a snapshot in time — I want to make that moment count.

Exhibition Highlight: Sylvia Garcia-Smith Photography is both a seasoned professional and consummate student.

About Sylvia Garcia-Smith:
Sylvia Garcia-Smith was born to be behind the lens of a camera. Her range of experience is hardly equaled by any other prominent wildlife photographer. Sylvia started her career in film photography and processing photos for a local law enforcement agency. She moved on to years of employment for Federal Bureau of Prisons refining her photographic skills while there. She always knew that her true calling was capturing the beauty of the natural world through her lens and inspiring others to a higher appreciation of the charm and beauty of South Texas. Sylvia is also an event photographer rounding out her skills with people, as well as wildlife. Sylvia’s remarkable wildlife photography has been shown at local galleries and published in calendars. Her work wins recognition and publication with the prestigious Wildlife in Focus biannual photo contest. Her accolades include having multiple images published in the discriminating Texas Parks & Wildlife Magazine. Sylvia loves passing on her knowledge in the field and in the classroom. Her gentle and encouraging style is applauded by everyone that has had the pleasure of spending time with Sylvia Garcia-Smith.

“You don’t take a photograph. You ask quietly to borrow it.”
— Unknown

Exhibition Highlight: Stephen Fisher.
Mr. Fisher's breathtaking photography often portays a very intimate moment between photographer and wildlife.

Artists Statement:
I’m an artist and my medium is digital photography. Since I’m not a photojournalist, I feel free to fully express myself through my art. My computer is my digital darkroom, and I use various editing tools to create my images.

I love the Coastal Bend and try to honor it through my photography. This special region of Texas provides me with the diverse species of wildlife and breathtaking landscapes that I passionately try to capture in my art.

I happily live in Rockport, Texas with my wife Sharon, our two aging Italian Greyhounds, and three rescued kittens. I have a great life.
