"Lines Through the Lens" Photography Exhibit at GCC Arcade Campus

Presented by photographer Bonita Chimes and VIEW FINDERS
Genesee Community College at Arcade is hosting a photography exhibit entitled “Lines Through The Lens” presented by photographer Bonita Chimes and the local chapter of VIEW FINDERS. The exhibit will open on November 2, 2008 with a reception from 4:00 – 6:00PM. The show will be on display through November 28 and is open during normal Campus Center hours (Monday through Thursday, 9:00AM – 9:00PM, and Friday, 9:00AM – 4:00 PM).

Bonita Chimes has more than 20 years of photography experience, including work with nature, photojournalism, television and commercial photography. She has been published in newspapers, magazines and books.

Since 1994, Bonita has been working on a project called “Little Towns Are Not Forgotten”, which is an ongoing effort to document rural towns. She has completed five volumes to date which can be seen throughout WNY and Central California. In addition, Bonita supplied all the photographs for the guidebook “Somewhere To Go On Sunday”, introducing both residents and visitors to the natural beauty of WNY and Southern Ontario.

Bonita is the founder of VIEW FINDERS, a group of professional and amateur photographers with chapters in WNY and Sacramento California. The group participates in photography tours and will be traveling to Alaska and Norway to hone their skills while having fun. Bonita conducts photography workshops, both on tours and locally.

The Arcade Campus Center of Genesee Community College is located at 25 Edward Street in Arcade, NY. For more information, or if you are interested in having a show at the Arcade Campus Center during 2009, please stop by or call 585-492-5265.
