Opening December 2 and continuing through January 7, 2012, in the main gallery of the The Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, Colorado, is the exhibition “Dreams.” The work is meant to explore the notion that “our conscious and subconscious mind produces dreams that consist of images, ideas, sensations and emotions. Often they represent our aspirations, goals, and fears both realistic and fantastic.” The exhibition was juried by Aline Smithson the one-time gallery editor for Light Leaks magazine, who writes and edits the blog, Lenscratch, and has curated exhibitions for a number of galleries and online magazines. The Center’s executive director is Hamidah Glasgow.
Featured here, “End of the Road, Florida Keys, 2010″ by Barry Steven Greff, is one of the images being exhibited out of some 2,500 submitted for consideration. More of his work can be viewed on his Web site.

Oceanic creatures face an increasing struggle to survive as man impacts on their ecological environment. Ironically, in the aquarium these sea creatures are more protected and safe than in their natural world. Barry Steven Greff has created a series of fine art images of jellyfish at Aquariums throughout the U.S. See more of these as well as his close-up, intimate portraits of animals and ethereal sea and landscapes here. Images from the series have appeared in Silvershotz Fine Art Journal (Brisbane/London) and Color Magazine. They have traveled for exhibition to Atlanta and Ft. Lauderdale and will be on view in the Art of Photography 2 exhibit at Camera Obscura Gallery opening tonight, December 10, 2010.
