Bob Ray, the self-described “international artist with a camera,” and artist Jill Denton are scheduled to present their photography at a Flash Gallery, a new wave of art exhibition.
The one-night-only event is slated 5-8 p.m. Thursday at 164 Main St. in downtown Los Altos.
A Flash Gallery is a one-night event held in select locations, such as wineries, Main Street stores and private estates across the United States and Europe.
The events are designed for visitors to experience new photography, become inspired and meet the artists who created it.
Ray, a Saratoga resident, believes and begins every appearance with the motto “Cameras don’t take pictures, people do.”
He teaches and shoots photography around the world and is set to show pieces from his recent three-month European tour. His students are beginners and anyone interested in taking pictures with DSLR cameras, point-and-shoots and smart devices.
His 2013 U.S. tour included 37 cities. His European tour stopped in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, France and the United Kingdom.
Denton, a Pleasanton resident, is the creator of “TreeForm,” a forest of colorful, curvy trees in acrylics, each with its own feminine charm.
Denton’s artistic eye has a new focus on photography shot and produced exclusively on an iPad. Flash Gallery events focus on Denton’s iPad photographic artistry but include a glimpse into her unique paintings, which have been featured on magazine covers and as wine labels for Steven Kent Mirassou.
