Visual Artists’ Group

Artists’ Group Monthly Show:  Sept. 2018

Artists of the Month:  Albert Alter “Things That Appear”

Artists’ Reception:  To Be Determined …

Albert Alter is the Artist of the Month for September at St. James. His show is titled “Things That Appear.” Albert always has his camera with him and when something appears, he is ready to be captured by it. By looking at life through the eyes of the camera, he often sees unusual images or compositions. Sometimes when he looks closer at a photo, something will appear that he missed in the original photograph. Albert’s photographs have been in Artslandia Magazine, The New Calliope Magazine, and on the CD cover “Spirit Divine: Sacred Choral Music”. He has exhibited in solo and group shows including the Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts, the Cloisters Gallery at Westminster Presbyterian Church, New Space for Photography and in the Pioneer Chapel Gallery at St. James. His work is also in the permanent collection at St. Francis Catholic Church and in numerous personal collections in the Northwest and the Southeast. He loves taking candid shots at celebrations and interacting with his love of life by helping others experience the surprising appearance of things unexpected.

May you be surprised by the beauty that always surrounds us and be open for it to appear to you.

You can see Albert’s art throughout the month in the Pioneer Chapel. Because of the special service scheduled on Sunday, September 16th, the Artist’s Reception will be re-scheduled.
