The Unbound! exhibition originated to with the goal to annually present a cross-section of contemporary and traditional photography, and celebrate these working artists by hosting a fundraising event to raise monies to acquire work for the Candela Collection. Our intention is to eventually donate this collection to a notable art institution, thereby generating opportunities and exposure for participating artists beyond traditional group or juried show opportunities.
2014’s Unbound3! will include the photographs of Stephen Berkman, Jessica Ingram, Larry Fink, Amy Friend, Bill Yates, Roberta Allen, Willie Anne Wright, Tom Chambers, Robert Moran, Blue Mitchell, Michael Donnor, Priya Kambli, and Eliot Dudik, just to name a few.
Candela will close the exhibition with a blowout event featuring music, entertainment, door prizes and whatever else we might be able to conjure up between now and then.
This yearsgala fundraiser, Cirque de Candela, on Saturday, August 9th, 7-11pm will offer libations and eats, including our mouthwatering back alley chicken; and other amusement park fare the likes of a mermaid, tarot readings, the pool of sorrows, door prizes, raffle, weight guessing, and sundry stupendous surprises. This annual summer party has earned its reputation as a legendary good time but also manages to generate a lot of goodwill for participating photographers.
Event tickets and raffle tickets will be sold in advance and at the door; and all of these proceeds will go toward purchase of artwork from the exhibition for the aforementioned Candela Collection.
Come marvel at photographic mysteries! Come dance to the artistic spectacle!
