According to the Professional Photographers Association of GKC’s post,
“It is Brian’s goal to help others find their own unique voice by employing the words of the great Cecil Beaton: “Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.””
Sandy Puc’ 2013 Hands On Tour!
I’m honored to announce that I have been invited to be a guest speaker in Sandy Puc’s 2013 Hands-On Workshop tour. She’s amazing and I’m looking forward to sharing this experience with
attendees. I am excited to be included in such an incredible lineup of speakers. I love to help educate other photographers and share that passion at the same
time is such a thrill for me!
If you don’t have your tickets yet, make sure to get them soon. They are on sale now, and space is limited!
Live sessions, Q&A sessions and open shooting bays are just some of the fun features that this hands-on
experience has to offer. It takes the information of a typical Sandy Puc’ seminar and combines it with the
instruction of a real-time demonstration.
Best of all, these seminars are a lot of fun. They are a great way to meet some new people, better yourself
and create a higher industry standard for the future of portrait photography.
I hope to see you there!
Spiva Center for the Arts Gallery
Last April, Spiva Center for the Arts, a local gallery, hosted Eyeworks’ exhibit titled: Interludes and Explosions: the Photography of Brian DeMint. The show included some of Brian’s old favorites and some pieces not previously release. There were seventeen pieces and still each piece ranging in color and style.
“I received a plethora of wonderful comments about the show, sold many works and could not have been happier about the whole experience. I want to thank everyone who made it to the show and for the wonderful comments I received…. Also a shout out to Sarah Clements, Caleb Daniel, Natalie DeMint and Dena DeMint for helping to hang the show and special thanks to Spiva director Jo Mueller and Shaun Conroy for their support and help.” – Brian DeMint
Eyeworks will be looking for more venues for gallery shows so please contact him personally at 417-438-4229 or at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in hosting any of his work…thank you.
Umm.. You might want to turn your sound down a little first BEFORE hitting the play button… lol
Eyeworks visits Crystal Bridges!
Brian and family drove to Bentonville, Arkansas last Friday to see the new exhibit called Angels and Tomboys. Crystal Bridges‘ presentation had around 72 pieces of masterworks. This exhibit is described by Crystal Bridges as,
“In the aftermath of the Civil War, the American girl seemed transformed—at once more introspective and adventurous than the previous generation. Although the culture still prized the demure female child of the past, many saw a bolder type as the new, alternate ideal. Girlhood was no longer simple, and the complementary images of angel and tomboy emerged as competing visions of this new generation. For the first time, girls claimed the attention of genre artists, and girlhood itself seized the imagination of the nation. Angels and Tomboys: Girlhood in Nineteenth-Century American Art explores the myriad ways artists portrayed young girls: from the sentimental, innocent stereotype to the free-spirited individual.”
Some example artists that had their work in the presentation were John Singer Sargent, Winslow Homer, Mary Cassatt, Lily Martin Spenser, and Abbott Handerson Thayer. Two of Brian’s favorite pieces were Angel By Abbott Handerson Thayer and Sally by Joseph DeCamp.
