PhotoTapas
PhotoTapas celebrates the art of photography in Arizona throughout the month of February. This annual event showcases the work of Arizona's finest photography organizations and photographers as well as the philosophies and processes they employ to create exceptional works of art.
The Concept of Tapas: Shared Enjoyment – Traditional tapas are small plates of delectable, savory edibles shared along with lively conversation among friends and colleagues in a casual, convivial setting. PhotoTapas creates a similar environment with photography as the focal point. Just as those who sample a variety of traditional tapas often discover intriguing and piquant pleasures for the palate, participants in PhotoTapas have the opportunity to come together and explore the rich artistic “flavors” of our Arizona photographic community.

    Exhibition: “As I Nod to My Influences I Want to Float by Brenton Hamilton”
    Exhibition Dates: February 5 to February 28, 2015
    Reception: February 5, 7 - 9pm

    This exhibition will include two bodies of work: black glass ambrotypes and cyanotypes.


    Brenton Hamilton’s work provides a contemporary view on mythology and history created with one of the first photographic processes. His new series of interconnected works comes in the form of cyanotype on paper and recently black glass ambrotype. The images comprising “As I Nod to my Influences I Want to Float” reference a constant, personal interior dialogue of Hamilton’s.

The Vision of PhotoTapas:

PhotoTapas encourages collaboration and communication among galleries, photography-oriented organizations, and independent photographers within Arizona and beyond. The intent is twofold: to promote the art of photography throughout Arizona, and to celebrate the medium by offering the community a diverse sampling of engaging photography-related activities and events such as exhibitions, lectures, seminars, workshops, demonstrations and portfolio sharing. Objectives include:

• Drive public awareness of the scope and quality of the Arizona photography community

• Connect local and out-of-state photography collectors to Arizona galleries and photographers

• Encourage business for the state’s photography support organizations

• Increase awareness of Arizona’s museums, galleries and public art institutions

PhotoTapas is a community-supported program, and all photography-related organizations are encouraged to participate by showcasing their work and exhibitions during February 2015.
