Fine Art Photography Exhibition
By: Franka Gabler "Meditations" 
July 4th - June 28th, 2019. 608 East Olive Avenue, Fresno, CA
ArtHop/Artist Reception: ArtHop Thursday, July 11th, 2019, 5:00 to 8:00 PM.
Silhouettes in Fog #1, Yosemite         Franka Gabler
Meditations by Franka Gabler

For several years now, Franka Gabler has been drawing her inspiration from subtle, moody, often intimate landscapes – compositions somewhere between detail/abstract - and the wider view, beyond a mere record of a particular location.  Such compositions allow for extracting unique scenes from otherwise well-known places.  They often stimulate a viewer to think further, or engage in a more personal way.  The light and atmosphere Franka captures in her photographs often result in sentimental impact and ethereal feeling.  Mist and fog often allow for interesting compositions and interpretations, concealing distracting elements and leaving only the essence, isolated from larger surroundings, allowing her to feel, focus, and connect with a subject. 

“Meditations” is the third exhibit in a series about Franka’s intimate connection and interpretation of natural surroundings.  The previous exhibits include “Ethereal” (2015) and “In Sync” (2017). 
Her compositions and choice of subjects are intuitive.  She doesn’t plan what to photograph on a particular day—instead she gets out there with open senses, waiting to see what draws her attention, hoping to recognize a simple story in a chaotic surrounding:  a beam of light, an object that breaks a pattern – or a group of objects that form an interesting pattern, exciting light and atmospheric conditions, balance of stillness and movement... Gentle morning light, tranquility, and peace of untouched nature – where only disturbance is the sound of her own footsteps and breathing, make her appreciate the gift of life, a reminder that we are all part of a larger universe, and letting everyday worries fade away.
Being a scientist and a landscape photographer, Franka M. Gabler developed a fascination, admiration, and respect for nature.  Soon after moving to California in 1997, she experienced her first wilderness backpacking trip in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.  Ever since that time, Franka has been photographing the magnificence of the high country mountains and the California landscape.
She lives in the Sierra foothills, in the small mountain town of Coarsegold, not far from Yosemite National Park.

Franka’s photographs are published in several books and publications.  Her work has been featured in numerous exhibits and is represented in private collections throughout the United States and abroad.  She is affiliated with Stellar Gallery in Oakhurst, Spectrum Fine Art Gallery in Fresno, Ridgeline Gallery in Mariposa, and Circle Gallery in Madera, CA.

You can learn more about her work at:

Lynn Hock Napoli is a California portrait and Figure painter that has developed her award winning work for 30 years. Lynn comes from four generations of artists. Lynn works in pastel and oil and works in the Traditional romantic style. Her inspiration is from the old Masters as well the grand portrait artists of the early 20th century. Lynn's portrait work truly showcases the beauty of her subject's spirit. Each work of art is a true expression of who that person is. The depth and dimension of each piece of fine art is truly amazing.
