Plumas Arts Gallery holds reception Feb. 4 for photographer

For the month of February, the Plumas Arts gallery at 525 Main Street in Quincy is featuring the work of photographer Bruce Titus. An opening reception for his show will be held on Friday, Feb.4,  from 5 to 7 p.m. at the gallery.

Bruce currently lives in Reno, Nevada but his California roots go back to the 1840s, before the Gold Rush. While he does not describe himself as a professional photographer, his images have hung in a number of art galleries over the years.  Other than a couple of photography classes in college, he is entirely self-taught.

Advances in photography equipment and software allow him to push the envelope of creativity and produce images that blur the line between painting and photography. He refers to much of his body of work as “interpreted photography.” He has put together an eclectic body of work that is a reflection of how he sees the world.

Bruce has recently added purely digital images to his portfolio. These images are created entirely within Photoshop and other computer programs rather than starting with a photo.

The Plumas Arts Gallery and office hours are Wednesday thru Friday, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
