Activities and Updates


CATCHING UP – JANUARY THROUGH JULY 2019

We have been so busy with shows, special events, and other activities during the first half of 2019 that this is our first update in a very long while. As you will see, we have some exciting announcements to share, along with our review of all the wonderful things that have happened with Bullock photography since the beginning of the year.

TWO PHOTOGRAPHERS:
WYNN BULLOCK AND IMOGEN CUNNINGHAM

DVD NOW AVAILABLE FOR SALE!

Originally produced by award-winning filmmaker Fred Padula in 1966, Two Photographers is a candid and revealing dialog between two unique artists. It captures both Wynn and Imogen making photographs in their chosen locations and includes a meaningful selection of their work.

Fred recently completed a painstaking re-mastering his original 30-minute, 16mm film and added a new second feature titled Three Photographers in Conversation. In it, Judy Dater and Chris Johnson join Fred in talking about the friendships they each shared with Wynn and Imogen as well as how these two great photographers influenced them and their work.

Bullock Family Photography and the Imogen Cunningham Trust are the exclusive distributors of this historic film that has been beautifully updated and expanded. Two Photographers is now available in both standard DVD and Blu-Ray formats. We are the only source for the Blu-Ray edition and you may order copies in either format at our Online Store.


UNDER THE PERSIMMON TREE:
WITH BARBARA BULLOCK-WILSON

This event was part of a series of conversations/interviews between Henry Miller Memorial Library Director Magnus Toren and invited guests who have strong connections to Big Sur and the central coast.

Wynn's older daughter Barbara was the featured guest on Sunday, July 28, from 3-5pm. The event was free and open to the public.

The audio recording of the interview/conversation between Barbara and Magnus has been posted on the Library's website and is now available for listening.


NEW GALLERY REPRESENTATION

This spring we established new relationships with two galleries to represent Wynn's work.

The first is the Paul Mahder Gallery in Healdsburg, CA, a popular tourist destination located in the wine country of northern Sonoma County. Paul initiated his work with us by hosting a handsome show that opened on April 26 (see the exhibition listing below). Paul is especially interested in the imagery Wynn created in the late 1960s and early 70s and will be handling our limited edition, fine art estate prints as well as selected original work.

The second gallery with which we have established a representative relationship is the highly regarded Peter Fetterman Gallery. Founded 25 years ago, PFG is exclusively dedicated to fine art photography, especially classic 20th century imagery. One of the pioneer tenants in Bergamot Station, also known as the Santa Monica Center of the Arts, PFG is the only gallery in southern California working directly with us. Peter's love of Wynn's work is long-standing, and he and his staff plan to focus on the whole spectrum of Wynn's vintage work.


CURRENT & UPCOMING EXHIBITIONS

More specific information will be available closer to the opening.


HIGHLIGHTS OF EARLIER 2019 EXHIBITIONS AND EVENTS

EDNA BULLOCK: THROUGH A DANCER'S EYE

Concluding the Monterey Museum of Art's celebration of women artists, this solo show of Edna's photography opened on December 6, 2018 and was on display through March 10, 2019. Selected from the Museum's extensive permanent collection of Edna's work, it focused on four distinct subject matter areas: wood, flea market, fences, and nudes.

In conjunction with the show, Edna's older daughter Barbara created a PowerPoint presentation on her mother's life and work and delivered it to a standing room only audience on December 20. Titled Edna Bullock: Dancer, Wife, Mother…Photographer!, this hour-long illustrated talk is now available to be shared at other venues.

WYNN BULLOCK: SEARCHING IS EVERYTHING

Barbara was invited to be the 2019 guest speaker for the Independent Photographers Group of the Monterey Peninsula. For this once-a-year event, she produced another hour-long PowerPoint presentation, this one on her father's life and work. Delivered to a very appreciative audience on January 14, her talk was accompanied by a display of Wynn's photographs and books. This illustrated talk is also available to be given to other groups.

LIGHT WORLDS: PHOTOGRAPHIC ABSTRACTIONS BY WYNN BULLOCK & ROBERT STRIZICH

From March 13 through May 5, Radius Gallery in Santa Cruz, CA, hosted this joint show of Wynn's color abstract work and Robert's camera-less abstract black-and-white images. It represented the 8th showing of selections from our Wynn Bullock: Color Light Abstractions traveling exhibition. On April 6, an attentive audience enjoyed Barbara giving her Wynn Bullock: Searching is Everything talk and, on April 14, both Barbara and Robert participated in a lively Artists' Talk moderated by Gallery Director Ann Hazels.
