August 2018 Featured Artist: Charlene Martin- Photography

 Reception: August 3rd | 6 PM - 8:30 PM

Charlene Martin started studying fine art photography in 2010. She uses mainstream digital and alternative and historical processes for making photographs.  Her goal is to take a digital work back into an organic and one of a kind art piece.  Her main subjects are of the natural world.  Frequently exploring California themes of oak trees, desert and her backyard magnolia.

Camera-less processes as well as manipulating digitally created prints are some of the directions she explores.  In this show, Ms. Martin is exhibiting photo-encaustic works.  These are photographs mounted to cradle board and enhanced with encaustic, pastel and oil pigments.  Influenced by the artists around her, she has been using her photographs and other mediums to create more abstract works in mixed media and encaustic.  In this show are also scratchboard works she has done from her photographs.

Ms. Martin’s work can typically be found at the following locations:

  • Stockton Art League, Elsie Goodwin Gallery | 1902 Pacific Ave, Stockton
  • Lodi Community Art Center | 110 W. Pine St, Lodi
  • Viewpoint Photographic Art Center | 2015 J. Street, Suite 101, Sacramento

Ms. Martin is a member of the Stockton Art League, Lodi Community Art Center, Viewpoint Photographic Art Center, Blue Line Arts,  and the Stockton Camera Club.
