"Moments Between Oceans" Original Photography by Scott Amling
Exhibition at the Central Library February 13 - March 24, 2017
Artist's Reception and Discussion, February 22, 6-8 p.m., Central Library Friends Room
Newport Beach City Arts Commission presents an exhibition by photographer Scott Amling in the Central Library lobby gallery from February 13 through March 24. The exhibit will showcase a collection of original photography of seashell still life along with shots from the nearby Balboa peninsula to settings farther away like Kauai, Hawaii and Hokkaido, Japan.
According to Amling, his passion for photography began with an interest in architecture. Many of his favorite photos were shot using his first professional camera, a Hasselblad medium-format camera with film. For digital photography, Amling uses a Canon 5D single-lens reflex camera.
Scott’s work has been featured in photography contests in Black and White Photography Magazine and the image “The Post” won First Place in the national contest sponsored by Pacific Life in 2001.
All of the artwork on exhibit will be limited editions, signed and available for sale through the artist.
An artist’s reception and discussion will be held on Wednesday, February 22 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Central Library Friends Room. Photographer Scott Amling will introduce his collection with a short presentation on “A Day in Hokkaido.” He will be discussing his work in Hokkaido, Japan and showcasing three landscape photographs taken in November, 2016. The event will include opportunities for guests to meet the artist, engage in a questions and answer session and enjoy cheese, fruit and refreshments.
