Please join us at our next general membership meeting. This month's speaker will be Charles Stonewall, a south-side Easton native and Lehigh Valley returning resident. He has held many photographic and video jobs during his years in the Midwest.
With his background in video, audio, graphic design, and theatre lighting, Charles Stonewall brings an eclectic sensibility to his photography. He acknowledges his impulse to borrow across the arts. He also understands the distinctions between the various art forms, such as very different lighting vocabularies of video and theatre. The low lighting levels of many theatre scenes can make them difficult to photograph, yet he finds the angle and the emotional connections that will convey their essence.
Stonewall’s signature work ranges among the performing arts and social justice themes. His passion is as involved when he’s shooting photographs for the American Indian College Fund's Annual Report, as when he is photographing for non-profit organizations like Accessible Arts, whose mission is to unlocking the arts for children with disabilities and advocate access to the arts.
ACE Monthly meetings are a great place to learn about what's happening in ACE and meet other ACE members. The basic agenda of every member meeting is:
* Officer's Report - learn about our current finanes
* Upcoming Activities - reports by committee members on upcoming ACE events
* President's Address
* Member's Address - any member can announce their upcoming exhibits or anything else of interest to the community
* Refreshments - Coffee and goodies!
* Featured Speaker Presentation
We have openings for future speakers for ACE events. The goal of our speaker series is to share and educate ACE members and guests about artists, techniques, opportunities, and topics related to the arts.
