Genesee Community College at Arcade is hosting a photography exhibit entitled “Elegance of Water” presented by artist Bonita Chimes and the local chapter of View Finders. The exhibit begins June 11, 2007 and continues through September 7, 2007. A reception will be held from 2:00-4:00 pm on Saturday, June 30th.
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 and they can be seen throughout Western New York. In addition, Bonita supplied all the photographs for the guide book Somewhere to Go on Sunday, which introduces both residents and visitors to the natural beauty of Western New York and Southern Ontario.
Bonita is the founder of View Finders, a group of professional and amateur photographers with chapters in Western New York and Folsom, California. The group participates in photography tours and recently traveled to Alaska to hone their skills while having fun. Bonita conducts photography workshops both on tours and locally.
