‘Marking Time’ Opening Reception on September 26
September 26 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Bay Area Photographers Collective (BAPC), a nonprofit organization dedicated to peer learning and a diversity of photographic styles, will present its 20th Anniversary Exhibition Marking Time at the Harvey Milk Photo Center Gallery in San Francisco from September 26 through October 26, 2019. At the Opening Reception on September 26 from 6 to 8 p.m, the public can meet the artists and hear an introduction to the exhibition by its curator Meg Shiffler, Galleries Director, San Francisco Arts Commission.
Marking Time represents this moment in BAPC’s 20-year journey, featuring the work of the twenty-one current members. “A photograph provides us with the closest thing we have to a pin in time–a precise moment that nanoseconds later is lost in the sea of the past,” explains Shiffler. “Stepping into the exhibition will bring viewers into a time capsule representing today–our relationships to each other, the world, and photography.”
To honor BAPC’s history, the photographs of several BAPC founders will also be on display, along with a timeline of BAPC’s evolution through two decades of photographic, technological, and social change in the Bay Area and beyond. “With this exhibition, we’re thrilled to celebrate BAPC’s strength at 20 and its roots in the vision of the early members. This strength lets us keep expanding our activities and reach, such as our taking exhibits to Japan in both 2018 (Photo Yokohama) and 2019 (Kyotographie),” said Cindy Stokes, President of BAPC.
