Re: PCOHACAC 3RD SUNDAY ARTIST
The Perry County Opera House and Cultural Arts Center (PCOHACAC) will present their 3rd Sunday Artist Series featuring five local artists on February 16th from 1-4 PM at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church (across from the post office) in New Lexington. The public is encouraged to attend this free event. The artists will have items for sale. They will feature three new artists and two from last year’s series.
Once back on the ground they both decided they had some good shots and work up a plan to sell the photographs. They do farms, residents, schools and construction sites.
They are members of PAPA (Professional Aerial Photographers Association) and two of their photos were recognized in the 2013 photo contest as Excellent Prints. These two photos, Bridge to Salvation and Cars at Worship will be included in the show. There will be twenty other photos of various Perry County locations and scenes as well as video slide show of more their work over the last three and half years.

“When I am behind my camera I can do things that positively affect other’s dreams as well as my own.” John Kiss has been photographing various subjects for somewhere around 30 years; landscapes, nature, personal family images, macro and cityscape style work, but always stayed with the nature aspect as well. Over 6 years ago he became involved with a talent studio in Columbus, Ohio working with some of their newer models that wanted to build a portfolio and be represented by professional agencies. I realized that I WAS comfortable working with people and that my style and work ethic was preferred because I made them feel more at ease and I brought more of a creative aspect to the shoot. When the studio he was working with went out of business, but he started Captive Images Photography where he shoots weddings, high school seniors, family portraits, sports, and modeling portfolios, and Fine Art photography as well! I always told myself, I would take my ideas and throw them all against the wall and see what sticks! John has worked with professional models from across the East coast - New York, Baltimore, Pittsburg, Indianapolis, Columbus, etc… But I see myself as more of a mentor and prefer working with newer models as opposed to more established models. I have numerous agencies that recommend their new models to come work with me to build their portfolio. John has a reputation of being easy to work with, trustworthy, and someone who will ALWAYS deliver portfolio quality images from a shoot. Please check out his website at www.captiveimages-ohio.com or Facebook page at www.facebook.com/CaptiveImagesPhotography His Fine Art photography can be found at http://www.john-kiss.artistwebsites.com as well as on http://www.society6.com/CaptiveImagesPhotography
certified gemologist. He started in the jewelry business as a stone
cutter; he cuts all stones except diamond. He has a wide selection of
stones and stone rough for you to choose from. Dave discovered that just selling stones is a bit lean in profits, so he became a silver and gold smith. He does hand fabrication and casting and also works in palladium. Now, as you can see he is also working in sterling spoons and forks. All of the work is original and is sterling(925, i.e. 925 parts of silver to 75 parts of copper.) He can also work on your own sterling if you have some heirloom pieces that you want to be made into something you can wear.
PCOHACAC is a nonprofit seeking to bring cultural events to Perry County. They would like to thank all those who attended their recent mystery-dinner, Sweet Sally’s Saloon. Coming up on March 16th they will have an arts and crafts show featuring over 20 local crafters plus members of the Somerset Artist Co-op. In April there will be a “Battle of the Bands” and then May features our 3rd Annual Art Auction.
