Blutography on Display at Palm Harbor Library
PALM HARBOR – A collection of works by local artist-photographer Tony Blue is on display through June 30 in the Art Alcove of the Palm Harbor Library. The artist will discuss his artwork and his experiences on Monday, June 8, from 6 to 7 p.m., and all are invited.
Blue often applies digital enhancements and/or multiple images to his original photographs to create unique artwork. He calls his creative method “Blutography.” He first learned his craft through trial and error, then with military on-the-job training as a photographer in the United State Air Force during the Vietnam War. In the mid-‘70s and following the completion of his studies at Los Angeles City College, he opened a photography studio in Los Angeles specializing in the fields of portraiture, fashion and glamour. He soon became one of the most sought-after photographers in the Hollywood area. His work has achieved international acclaim – including an Award of Excellence from Nikon Camera Corporation’s international competition.
The Art Alcove is open Monday through Saturday during library hours at 2330 Nebraska Avenue. Call 727-784-3332, ext. 3021, or visit the library’s website, www.palmharborlibrary.org, for more information.
