Old Chapel was full of magnificent photography previous Wednesday, 10th April, featuring pictures taken by the students during many tours to Israel, including Birthright trips. Maggie Weinreb (13), arranged the event, working as Grinspoon Morningstar Intern on campus that is a program arranged by the Israel on Campus Coalition.
The exhibit was co-sponsored by The Idol, U for Israel, Hillel and the Garnet Minstrelles. Speaking about her motivation to arrange this event, Maggie Weinreb told that her main goal throughout the internship was for people to learn about the cultural aspects of Israel. Most people just think of the politics when it comes to Israel, and she wanted to show how much more there is to the amazing nation. She added that she just loves photography, and she realized that many students, over thirty, this past winter break have toured Israel.
The exhibit featured twelve student photographers – Irina Zhorov ‘13, Emanuel Storch ‘16, Zak Smolen ‘13, Shayna Han ‘15, Michelle Goldberg ‘14, Dylan Magida ‘14, Olivia Joyce ‘13, Erika Steuer ‘15, Dylan Taylor ‘16, Ariel Blum ‘13, Ben Berger ‘15 and Jessica Barofsky ‘13.
First position was handed to Taylor, while Joyce was in 2nd spot and Goldberg was in 3rd. Maggie considers this exhibit a huge success. She told that they planned to hang up all of the pictures in Hillel so that people could continue to learn through them. Even tough there are no plans at present for the next event, she expected that it goes on next year with a new set of snaps.”

Most people prefer wine colors or flavors that go with their personalities, but is there anyone who has heard of leveling wines to a dog’s personality?
Trish McMillen is the owner of Redstone’s McMillen Fine Art Photography with her husband Jared. she has now thought about this concept and has also decided to arrange what she terms a Yappy Hour on 9th February, Saturday.
The event that will be take place at the McMillen Fine Art Photography, is being arranged in collaboration with Fox School of Wine which will raise money for FOA (Friends of Animals) Utah.
Trish McMillen told that they would select wines and pairing those with the personalities of various dogs that she had photographed at FOA Utah rehabilitation ranch in Brown’s Canyon. She had photographed twelve dogs and unfortunately one has passed away. They would have black-and-white portraits of eleven dogs which are on 16 inch by16 inch canvases which will be available for a silent auction. Trish’s target was to capture the picture of dogs that required little more attention in the adoption process.
She told that in doing that they are focused on adult dogs over the age of 6. They also attempted to photograph as many black and gray dogs as they could, because Lisa Allison informed them that those dogs are most commonly overlooked for adoption.
Pictures starting from magnificent El Paso Mountains scenery to self-portraits were exhibited at the very first International Eye of the Camera event that held in the Crossland Gallery. El Paso Art Association’s office administrator Joyce Ewald told that they were really pleased to have their very first exhibition like this. Not just that, the number of entries as well as the quality of those entries were really good.
The Art Association arranged the photography event on 30th November that featured pictures from Juarez, Las Cruces and El Paso. The idea to arrange the International Eye of the Camera event came after the Arts International event that excluded pictures mainly because of Crossland gallery’s limited space.
Joyce Ewald along with other 4 committee members decided to make an event mainly for photographers. He told that he felt that there were a whole lot of members who were good photographers and he felt that the other pictures deserve another show.
Ninety seven photographs were sent, but the Art Association is expecting that the number will increase next year. ELS Photography owner Ernest L. Salazar, told that they require more pictures to get involve with the association. He added that they need to raise more money if they need these events to happen.
Rudy Gutierrez, El Paso Times photographer, judged the pictures. According to reports, he judged the pictures based on the use of light, composition and content. The pictures were numbered on a 1 to 10 scale.
