This annual juried selection of approximately 50 photographs by the highly talented members of the Huntsville Photographic Society will include both color and black and white photography in a range of styles. Each year, the exhibition is juried around a common theme. This year’s theme is Chiaroscuro. The word derives from the Italian chiaro, meaning clear or bright, and the Latin oscuro, meaning dark or obscure. In the visual arts, it defines a technique of exaggerating light and shadow as they define three-dimensional objects. The technique was most famously used by the 17th century painters Caravaggio and Rembrandt to increase the dramatic and psychological effects in their paintings.
The Huntsville Photographic Society is an organization dedicated to promoting the art and science of photography in Huntsville and the surrounding area through informative programs, member contests, and special events. The HPS Members’ Showcase is an annual exhibition jointly organized by the Huntsville Photographic Society and the Huntsville Museum of Art.
