The newest photography exhibit from the Nevada County Camera Club entitled “Creative Portraits” will open on Saturday, July 17 at Nevada City Picture Framing and Restoration. “This show takes the idea of the portrait and elevates it,” states Ellen Davis, Gallery Exhibit Coordinator for the Nevada County Camera Club.

Twenty-eight portraits showcase the endless variations and beauty of the human face and figure and push past the thought of portraiture as something that must always be formal and rule-bound.  

“I am pleased with the variety of images in this show.  It is not a gallery filled with formal smiles and poses, rather a showcase with a wide range of people being who they are, a slice of their lives.  Each one expresses something interesting about the person: where they have been in their life and who they might become. The moods range from the depths of despair to bright and fun, while some have gone slightly surreal.  I hope visitors will enjoy the show and feel a sense of connection with their fellow human beings,” continued Davis.

Melissa Goldman, owner of Nevada City Picture Framing and Restoration at 571 Searls Ave in Nevada City invites visitors to view the show during open hours on Tues, Wed, and Thurs from 12:00 noon to 5:00 pm and on Saturdays from 11:00 – 3:00.
