JOURNEY INTO CIVILIZATIONS: Patrice Villastrigo’s Photography at the Semmes Library San Antonio, TX ~ September 20, 2008 ~ Artist Patrice Villastrigo will present Journey Into Civilizations, an exhibit of photographs taken during her travels, at the Semmes Library from September 20, 2008 to January 5, 2009. Villastrigo will host a free hands-on digital photography workshop at the library on September 20 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m., followed by an opening reception for the exhibit from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. The exhibit features photographs of the places and people Villastrigo encountered while visiting countries with sites of ancient civilizations. Villastrigo has traveled through Central and South America, Europe, Ireland , and Egypt in her search for places of natural and spiritual beauty. “I investigate often uncommon sources to search for that shot combining a perfect composition of color, depth, form and beauty,” Villastrigo says. “Creating art using a variety of resources, I must admit that the camera lens is my favorite medium. During the hands-on photography workshop, Finding the Beauty Within from Without, Villastrigo will discuss her photographic inspiration and demonstrate her approach to photography. Participants are encouraged to bring a digital camera to the workshop to take photographs. The best photographs created during the workshop will be displayed in the library meeting room during the opening reception, and all workshop participants will be acknowledged. Villastrigo grew up in a family of photographers, artists and musicians in San Antonio , and claims a large influence from her photo-journalist father. Villastrigo has pursued photography, painting, sculpture, singing and writing since childhood. She has exhibited her photographs, paintings and sculptures in galleries around the world.
