Image Werks Photography Club
Throughout February the Woodridge Public Library is featuring work from a local photography club known as Image Werks. The library’s Art Gallery space is located in the library’s lobby and is open during regular hours. Club members have shared the following Artist Statement:
Image Werks was formed to provide like-minded photographers a forum to explore imaging outside of the traditional scope of established camera clubs. Members retain the freedom to develop their individual style based on personal vision. We do not compete among ourselves. Rather, mutual encouragement fosters experimentation, exchange of ideas and sharing of experiences. Some members have a lifelong list of achievements and awards and all members strive to push the boundaries of their endeavors. Whether we develop new images using modern technology or 100 year-old methods, the end result is deemed important:
Ars Gratia Artis --- Art For Art's Sake.
The heart and core of IMAGE WERKS rests on the joy of advancing our craft and art. Thank you for your interest in our show.
Image Werks began with the following members:
Judy Falout, Joe Falout, John Wiet, Larry Leonard, Don Plocher and Tom Krekelberg.
After fewer than a half dozen meetings and before any club showings, Don Plocher passed away. His absence is keenly felt in our small gatherings. We dedicate this first show to honor his memory.
