Joyce Wilson “Creative Challenge”
November 19, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
“Creative Challenge” is the topic for the Ojai Photography Community’s upcoming event, featuring Santa Barbara based fine art photographer Joyce Wilson. The free event will be held on Tuesday, November 19, at 7 p.m. in Help of Ojai’s Kent Hall, 111 W. Santa Ana St., Ojai. The general public is invited to attend. Wilson has successfully made the transition from the constraints of commercial photography to the freedom and creativity of fine art. She will reveal the practices that allowed her to straddle the fence into a new artistic vision. Visitors will learn how to take their creativity to the next level through her insights into the steps of becoming an artist and seeing beyond the ordinary. A master of alternative processes, she will discuss what is available today and share her love of combining traditional methods with the endless possibilities of digital technology. “I am passionate about alternative processes,” Wilson says, “and blend old world and contemporary technology to enhance and alter the photographic image to a subtler art form.” Using her camera as a “sketchbook,” she works with a variety of techniques including collage, encaustic wax and the nineteenth century arts of bromoil and photogravure etching.
