In a series of annual exhibitions called Valley Focus, the Carnegie Arts Center is celebrating the variety of artistic creativity found in California’s Central Valley. This year the show features works by the area’s most accomplished photographers. From more than 250 entries, 80 pieces by 48 individual artists were selected, representing the very best images being created in and of the region today.

 

The works in the exhibition were selected by photographer Ted Orland. Mr. Orland lives in Santa Cruz, where he pursues teaching, writing and photography. He took up photography as a student working for designer Charles Eames, and in the 1970s worked as Ansel Adams’ assistant. He later taught at Stanford University and University of Oregon, and taught Digital Photography at Cabrillo College for many years. He currently leads master class workshops for independent programs nationwide.
