PRLog (Press Release) - Feb. 20, 2014 - POULSBO, Wash. -- West Sound Academy's Frodel Gallery presents 'Into the Light', a selection of fine art photography by Bainbridge artist Dinah Satterwhite, on exhibit through the month of March.  The show is a collection of abstract images showing light, movement, and intense color, printed onto specially treated sheets of aluminum.

A long-time Bainbridge resident, Satterwhite produces commercial photography, magazines, and images for corporate projects in addition to her work in fine art. Satterwhite is familiar with all of the possibilities in today’s modern world of photography, from film and digital, to alternative processes and computer manipulations, but she leans towards more elemental hands-on techniques. For over thirteen years, she has specialized in hand-tinting black and white photographs. Working with her film photos, including infrared film, she paints on darkroom enlargements made on fiber-based papers, using special oil paints and cotton swabs.

Recently Satterwhite began a series called “Into the Light” where she "paints" with her camera to capture light in a somewhat surreal and very imaginative, abstract way. The March show at Frodel Gallery is a selection of photographs from this new body of work.

Satterwhite explains, "These practically raw digital images showcase my familiarity with a camera, as I combine manual camera settings, motion, and natural light to depict a sense of graceful motion. I can easily take over 1,000 photos to get that “one” perfect image. Then the image is printed onto specially coated aluminum sheets by infusing dyes directly into the metal in a high-heat process. This results in a vibrant, detailed, and luminescent photo with incredible resolution, sharpness, and color retention."

As a fine art photographer, Studio Tour Manager, and a juror in regional contests, Satterwhite sees tens of thousands of images each year. For her, a great piece of art, whether her own or created by another artist, has to start with just one thing: it has to be extraordinary, eye-catching, and remarkable.  In Satterwhite's words, it must have "the ability to stop me in my tracks. To catch my breath, and hold me timeless in it’s grasp. To be interesting, even from a distance. To tell a story."

Satterwhite hopes for a similar response in viewers of her "Into the Light" series.  "I love this medium for defining my light in motion art, as it conveys a passion, energy, and beauty that I hope takes your breath away." She adds, "This is raw light and motion, captured by painting with a camera."

West Sound Academy hosts a gallery reception for Satterwhite on Friday, March 14th from 6:30 to 8 p.m. The public is invited, and guests will be able to enjoy light refreshments and wine.   The following week the artist will return to Frodel Gallery for a morning assembly on March 18th.  where she will speak to West Sound students about her work.
