Join us Friday December 2, from 5 – 8:30 for an artist reception of local photographers Bryan Boyd, Michael Cavazos, and Glenda Derveloy. All three photographers studied under O. Rufus Lovett at Kilgore College. The same evening, Discover Downtown Christmas, Downtown Market, and ArtWalk – they are all happening at the same time. Lots of fun for the entire family.
Bryan Boyd will be displaying “House of LeRoy”, Boyd said, “This series captures the unique way that one man creates what I first imagined to be “yard decor.”
Michael Cavazos is showing a series of images of birds and hi-line wires. Cavazos said, “This group of images are the result of challenging myself to make something interesting of what is overlooked by many every day, as well as my falling in love with the simple complexities of photographing wildlife in its man made habitat.”
Glenda Derveloy is showing a series of images she photographed using High Dynamic Range method or HDR. Derveloy said, ” These images are my attempts at turning both everyday scenes that may not seem remarkable as you drive past them, as well as well-known historical sites and already breathtaking landmarks, into works of art that surprise the onlooker with details or beauty they would not have noticed otherwise.”
Bryan Boyd went to Oklahoma State Technical College and graduated with a degree in Commercial Art in 1979. Boyd’s passions are in the areas of painting, archeology and photography. Since high school, photography has been another of Bryan’s many interests. His unique photography has been critiqued and awarded numerous accolades by such accomplished photographers as True Redd, O.Rufus Lovett, and Scott Campbell. His work has exhibited at the Longview Museum of Fine Arts and at P’s Gallery.
Michael Cavazos studied photography under the direction of O. Rufus Lovett at Kilgore College and Christopher Talbot at Stephen F. Austin State University. Michael now works at the Longview News-Journal where he provides photography/videography for feature stories, news, sports and much more.
Glenda Derveloy’s work has been exhibited in several galleries and exhibits including Childhood: An International Exhibit, “Short Exposure” exhibits at the Longview Museum of Fine Arts, and several Kilgore College student shows. Among her honors and awards are being published as a finalist in Photographer’s Forum Best of College Photography 2010 and Photographer’s Forum Spring 2010 Annual, numerous awards in the Fine Art, Landscape, and Human Interest categories of the Texas Bank & Trust Calendar Contest from 2008 through 2011, and being named Who’s Who in Photography for 2007 at Kilgore College.
