Fort Morgan, CO. 08/11/14. Morgan Community College Center for Arts and Community Enrichment (CACE) announces the first event of the new season, “Through the Lens—A Photographic Escape with Corey Gibson.” The exhibition will open on Friday, August 29 with a reception from 5 to 8 p.m. at the CACE Gallery of Fine Art, 300 Main Street, in downtown Fort Morgan.
“My process starts with witnessing and observing something beautiful, and then grabbing my camera,” says Gibson. “After capturing the scene, my desire is to bring the viewer with me to what I was witnessing at that moment. To do this, I bring the image into my post-processing workflow where I attempt to re-create the moment with color, drama, and detail.”
Additionally, the artist will be sharing his process through a presentation on Friday, October 3 from 4-6 p.m. at 300 Main Street, with a discussion on “Post Processing Digital Images.”
Gibson’s portfolio includes portraits, award-winning landscapes, commissioned real estate shoots, and macro photography. He has extensive experience with Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom, Illustrator, and InDesign as well as processing images in HDR using Photomatix. Additionally this spring, Gibson debut his self-published book, The Sky, which is currently available through Amazon. More information about the artist can be found on his website at www.coreygibson.net.
The Gallery has scheduled hours on Fridays from 4 to 6 p.m. Gibson’s exhibit will run through October 3, 2014. The CACE Gallery of Fine Art is free and open to the public.
