Student art on display at Plumas Arts; opening reception May 5

Plumas Arts is pleased to announce a gallery opening reception this Friday, May 5, from 5 to 7 p.m. at 525 Main Street in Quincy. Plumas Arts will be displaying the work of Plumas County students. Student Art month features work from Plumas Charter, C. Roy Charmichael Elementary, Quincy Elementary and Portola and Quincy Jr/Sr High School.

Plumas Arts also coordinates the art display at Patti’s Thunder Café. For the months of May and June, Patti’s Thunder Cafe is exhibiting a show by Bruce Titus who 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 added purely digital images to his portfolio. These images are created entirely within Photoshop and other computer programs rather than starting with a photo.
