The Willamette Valley PhotoArts Guild’s 12th biennial exhibit, “Finding the Light,” features over 80 photographs that interpret the opening lines of Amanda Gorman’s poem read at the Presidential Inauguration in January 2021. The 23 photographers participating in the exhibit were asked to look for literal or metaphorical interpretations of the poem, in particular its opening lines:
When day comes we ask ourselves
where can we find light in the never-ending shade?
The result is a wide-ranging exhibit of color and black-and-white photographs depicting light in its myriad forms–on the landscape, in the heavens, along city streets and in the dark of night; as well as inside churches, museums, attics, airports–including inside the minds of the artist.
The Willamette Valley PhotoArts Guild was formed more than 30 years ago to promote and support fine art photography in the mid-valley and has been an affiliated guild of the Corvallis Art Center since 1988. This is the 12th in the guild’s series of biennial expositions at The LaSells Stewart Center.
