A photographic series depicting 8 families on the Central Coast who represent our LGBTQ+ community. Created as a response to the surge in anti-LGBTQ+ legislation, including a record-number of state bills limiting the rights of LGBTQ+ people in 2022, an alarming increase in threats and violence against LGBTQ+ people, and direct attacks on family-friendly queer events and spaces, this project will showcase the diversity, beauty, joy, love, and connection in our LGBTQ+ families here on the Central Coast. Portraits will provide a window into families that belong here, thrive here, and are glorious in exactly who they are.
The Gallery at the Cambria Center for the Arts is currently hosting “Coastal Perspectives” a photography show running through July 2. The collection of works in this exhibit represents a vast range of what can be accomplished with a camera and various image surfaces. From black and white prints on paper, to color saturated prints on wood and metal, to changing images on a television screen – all of the entries exemplified masterful photography technique.The exhibit is open Friday through Sunday 12:00-4:00.
