"Image Within an Image: Point Lobos" - an exhibition featuring recent photographic work of Roger Fremier - is showing now through Nov. 19 at The Gallery at Blackstone in Gonzales, in association with the Hartnell College Gallery.
The exhibit is open daily from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Attendees also can taste Blackstone's award-winning wines. Both the exhibit and the wine tasting are free.
Photographing at Point Lobos from June through August 2004, Fremier revisited this familiar territory with fresh ideas, according to Eric Bosler, Hartnell photography and art instructor. "This process resulted in intriguing news works that play the famed beauty of the area to manifest 'secret' images and new meanings," he said.
Bosler said the exhibition features the opportunity for patrons to interact with the show by writing or sketching the observed "image within." Selected responses are exhibited in the show.
Freimer began his photographic career in the early 1950s. In 1968, he established his own business and became a full-time photography instructor at Monterey Peninsula College. He has published books, been a curator for several exhibits, judged competitions, taught workshops and led photographic tours throughout the world.
In 1988, Freimer founded the Center for Photographic Art in Carmel. He has participated in more than 50 group and sole exhibitions throughout the United States. In addition, his work is in the permanent collections of several museums and galleries, including the Monterey Peninsula Museum of Modern Art and the National Portrait Gallery in London.
The Gallery at Blackstone is located adjacent to the Blackstone Tasting Room within the winery, 800 S. Alta St., Gonzales.
