"Untitled, (Red Dot)" by Amy Caterina

Polaroid, Framed, 3.5"x4" image round, Valued at $250

Artist Bio:
As an artist, Amy Caterina seamlessly merges what appear to be diverse interests into a compelling and evolving body of mixed media work. There is a literal thread that bands these photographic, fiber, video, and installation work. Driven by the process as content, Caterina's work follows her interests in the physical world revealed through her voyeuristic observations of others' lives and relationships with ephemeral natural environments.
As an educator. Caterina believes every student has an innate curiosity and a natural capacity to be creative, and, as a teacher, it is my goal to create an outlet for this creativity that is conducive to the ways technology is currently shaping education. There is interconnectivity between creativity, technology, and the way students’ interface (or interact) with the world. She uses teaching tools to make this interconnectivity accessible, engaging, and impactful.

"Tulips #55, 2006" by Huntington Witherill

Archival Pigment Print, Over-matted 22"x28", Valued at $550

Artist Bio:
Born in Syracuse, NY, in 1949, Huntington Witherill moved with his family to California, in 1953, where he began taking piano lessons at the age of four. With intentions of eventually becoming a concert pianist, Witherill entered college as a music major in 1968, but soon thereafter became interested in the study of two-dimensional design. That shift in artistic pursuit eventually led to a career in fine art photography beginning in 1970.
Having studied photography in the early 1970’s with such notables as Ansel Adams, Wynn Bullock, Steve Crouch and Al Weber, Witherill has remained faithful to his classical roots while progressively transitioning toward a more contemporary approach to the medium. Over the past fifty years, his work has been featured in more than one hundred individual and group exhibitions in museums and galleries throughout the world.
Indicative of a diverse approach to the medium, Witherill works in both black & white, and color, and his subjects include classic landscapes, studies of pop-art, botanical still-life, urban architecture, classic and exotic automobiles, cultural icons, and other assorted visual anomalies and curiosities. More recently, Witherill has developed a form of digital collage involving a combination of sketching, drawing, and photography, through an imaginative series of abstract images titled: Enigmata.
Witherill’s photographs have been the subject of three award winning hardcover monographs titled: Orchestrating Icons (2000), Botanical Dances (2001), and Photo Synthesis (2010) and in 1999, he was the recipient of the “Artist of the Year” award presented by the Center for Photographic Art, Carmel, California.
Witherill’s work is also maintained in numerous distinguished public art collections including; the United States Department of State: Art in the Embassies, Fundacióe Van Gogh d’Arles, Arles, France, the National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto, Japan, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA, Everson Museum of Art, Syracuse, NY, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, Santa Barbara, CA, and the Monterey Museum of Art, Monterey, CA, among others.
Since 1975, Witherill has also continued to teach photography for a variety of institutions and workshop programs throughout the United States, including the University of California, the Friends of Photography, the Center for Photographic Art, the Oklahoma Arts Institute, and the Ansel Adams Gallery, among others.
Huntington Witherill lives on the Monterey Peninsula in Central California.

Artist Bio:
Judith Preston is a photographer and educator who grew up in rural New England and now lives in Southern California. She first became interested in photography while pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in English from Keene State College in New Hampshire.

Since 1988, she has taught both traditional darkroom and digital photography classes as well as History of Photography at Grossmont, Palomar, and MiraCosta colleges.

"Framed from Reverence: The San Diego River, 2022" by Louise Russell

Archival Pigment Print, Framed 11"x14", 9.7" x 7.7" print size, Valued at $300

Artist Bio:
I acknowledge that the land where I produced this photograph is the unceded, traditional territory of the Kumeyaay Band of Nations.
My artwork centers on land and place: its power, beauty, past and present, use and abuse, and our desire for it. I am motivated and guided by my love of the land and climate crisis activism.
This image, Framed, is from the series Reverence: The San Diego River which I began in 2021 to capture its beauty and glory while not forgetting its troubles. The river begins in the backcountry near Julian and winds its way through Lakeside, Santee, and Mission Valley to empty into the sea at Ocean Beach.The Kumeyaay Band of Nations lived and fished all along the river for more than 12,000 years. The mission was established alongside the river and it was dammed to make El Capitan Reservoir in 1934 to provide water for the growing population of San Diego. This forced Kumeyaay Native villages to be removed which resulted in the development of Barona and Viejas Reservations.
As I wander along the river with my 8x10 inch pinhole camera, a sense of discovery embodies me. In places it is silent and peaceful, others wild and restless, others noisy with nearby traffic. Its complex history and uncertain future encourage contemplation, action, and respect for the work to keep it natural and healthy and accessible. The San Diego River Park Foundation,
https://sandiegoriver.org/, is working to this end all along the river’s 52-mile course.

"Animistic Ground #59, 2017" by Robert Treat

Archival Pigment Print, Framed, 11"x11" print, Valued at $450

Artist Bio:
Robert Treat is a California artist who spent his childhood growing up in rural Ohio. Being an only child, nature had always been a close companion to him. He spent many a summer afternoon closely exploring and observing the colors and forms of his outdoor environment.
Robert’s formal training is in Architecture and Fine Arts from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. After graduation, his art interests expanded to include large format photography and film animation. Along with a photographic and painting career, he has been involved in the Hollywood animation industry for over thirty years. Over time, he has had the opportunity to study under a variety of creative individuals including Ansel
Adams, Paul Caponigro and Chuck Jones.
Primarily nature oriented, Robert’s photographs exhibit a strong structural awareness often verging into unconscious abstraction. These concerns are also apparent in his painting.
More recently Roberts photographs and paintings have begun to merge together combining alternative photographic processes and organic materials such as beeswax and asphalt. The resulting images reveal sensuous tactile surfaces along with strong active shapes.
For him it is a way to recover a primary sense of self, a quality that tends to get repressed by today’s modernity in general and media-representation in particular.
Robert currently resides in San Diego.

"Summer Visitors to Santa Cruz. 2016" by Ted Orland

Archival Pigment Print, Unframed, 11"x8" print on 14"x11", Valued at $300

Artist Bio:
My working method isn’t exactly rocket science: I simply hang the camera around my neck, carry it with me everywhere, and photograph pretty much whatever resonates with my view of reality. Think of it as an ongoing two-way conversation between myself and the surrounding world. (And yes, the universe does talk back — my pictures have to earn their Titles.)
My professional career (such as it is) has been essentially one long traverse across the arts spectrum, beginning as a newly minted graphic artist working for renowned designer Charles Eames. Then, a few years later (but still in the era when view cameras roamed the Landscape), I enrolled in Ansel Adams’ Yosemite Photography Workshop — a wonderful experience that evolved into my serving as Ansel Adams’ Assistant and as an instructor at those same Workshops. Working with Ansel brought me into contact with legendary artists like Jerry Uelsmann & Paul Caponigro, while his Workshops introduced me to kindred spirits from my own generation like Linda Connor & Chris Johnson & Sally Mann. Personally, I attribute any success I’ve achieved largely to those early (and still-active) friendships with remarkable people.
Over time, my interests expanded beyond photography per se to include teaching and writing, leading to a life of economic levitation that continues to this day. Nowadays my photography is represented through The Ansel Adams Gallery in Yosemite, my writings (most prominently Art & Fear, co-authored with David Bayles) are available under the Image Continuum Press imprint, and my teaching continues via workshops & lectures on topics of artistic development.
