Camille Jungman And Gallery 406
A trip to Kendall and Stephanie Reeves’ Gallery 406 definitely is in order.
Yesterday I had the pleasure of lunch with Kendall and Stephanie Reeves, owners and creative forces behind Bloomington’s Spectrum Studio and Gallery 406. They are good and valued friends, and important contributors to the city’s downtown vibrancy. Also, they always lift me up in Christian fellowship, examples of how we are to properly live our lives. Thank you, Kendall and Stephanie, for a most rewarding afternoon.
And part of the rewards of visiting with them was viewing their current gallery display, In the Spotlight and Floaters, works by Camille Jungman. They are different … creative. And different and creative sets us apart from all the other photographers out there. Camille’s images are part texture, part photo, part hand colored. And all interesting. There is real depth and emotion to her work; I could see that even when what she was saying didn’t completely resonate with me. Camille is living here in Bloomington now, a transplant from Louisiana and a career filled with teaching. You can get a sneak peek at some of her images by visiting her website, camillejungmanphotography, by clicking here. Then make a promise to yourself to visit Gallery 406 on the north side of the square to see the exhibit for yourself. You’ll be glad you did.
And while you are there be sure to view some new works by Kendall. He has two that really stand out (among his other great photos). There is a new shot of the Monroe County courthouse that just sings in its colors. And the other is a shot of the front of the Story general store. It captures the dignity of a landmark for that area just as a fine portrait does. Kendall is good (but you Bloomington readers already know that). Plan a trip to Gallery 406 before this exhibit comes down at the end of March. And you can read more about the studio and gallery by clicking here.
The weather this morning in our area is rather frightful, but it isn’t scheduled to last all day or all weekend. So, enjoy the next couple of days. Camera in hand.
