This month’s exhibit at the Pump House Center for the Arts is a judged photography exhibit titled “Captured.” Kevin Coleman was present during the opening night Thursday evening May 5, 2022.
Jared Mitten won Best Show with his large aluminum plaque of an Alaskan scene. He named the 46-second exposure of the Turnagain Arm shoreline, part of Cook Inlet, “Twilight.”
He doesn’t call himself a professional, but rather an “experienced amateur” who travels to take pictures.
Jared said he liked his other print better in the show, but the judge chose this one. He said, for him, the photo is more about the story of the shoot and his memories.
Douglas Crabtree calls his black and white print of two women lying on the floor of a forest, “Circle of Two”.
He said filming was like an expedition, taking them down a logging road on a township road on a county road in Lawrence County.
Crabtree says he wants his photos to be indatable. He photographs nudes in nature so there are no landmarks.
The show is in place until the end of the month, and some works are for sale. the pump house is Chillicothe’s free public art gallery in Yoctangee Park.
