MARCHS PROGRAM by Barbara Royer
Our speaker for March will be Abe Ordover and his topic will be Nature Photography: From Grand
Landscapes through Impressionism to Abstraction.
Abe Ordover's impressionistic photography is a fusion of camera work and computer work, giving
the viewer a glimpse into his imagination and perception of a world ever changing. The artist's
international travels are revealed in images that capture the earth's majesty and his feelings the
moment the photograph was taken.
Ordover began to computer enhance photographs in 1997. Through insightful manipulation he
emphasizes color, texture, and pattern to evoke the strong emotions that he experienced when
stepping into the scene. His choice of powerful hues along with blurred and blended abstraction,
create impressionistic pieces that have become his trademark.
Ordover's photography has been shown in galleries and museums throughout the U.S. These include
shows in New York City, Dallas, Atlanta, Boulder, Raleigh, and Nashville, as well as regional
exhibitions in Michigan, Minnesota and Alabama. His gallery in the Solana Beach Cedros Design
District specializes in fine art nature photography and features world-renowned photographers.
PRESIDENTS CORNER by Mike McMahon
We were very fortunate to have a great response to our call for more volunteer help. Nearly 50
people signed in when we circulated our volunteer sign-in sheet at the February meeting and over
80% indicated that they would be willing to help. Congratulations to Sally Burgess, Robert Chavis,
Scholl, and Joe Erbs they each won a photographic book during the sign-in prize drawing.
