Visions From Above Aerial Photography Exhibit and Lagunitas IPA, Sat. October 29.
Visions From Above, a one day exhibit and sale of prints created by aerial photographers from around the world takes place in front of the offices of Aerial Archives, 561 Sky Ranch Rd, Suite E (in the 29ner Building), Saturday, October 29, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
This free event, organized by Airport Muse, is sponsored by the Lagunitas Brewing Company, which is providing its renowned India Pale Ale for event attendees, by the Professional Aerial Photographers Association and the Petaluma Arts Center. Airport Muse is a firm dedicated to bringing fine art events to airport venues, has created several events in Petaluma and currently manages exhibits in Miami and Nashville.
Airport Muse curator and award-winning aerial photographer, Herb Lingl notes that “we are fortunate to have this extensive collection of high quality aerial photography created by over 20 different aerial photographers on display and for sale in one place.” Included in the exhibit are prints of David Bryne’s award winning aerial self portrait and David Tunge’s stunning aerial winter landscape which has also received several awards.
Numerous northern California businesses have donated prizes for the raffle which takes place toward the conclusion of the event. Raffle proceeds benefit the Petaluma Arts Center and the Western Horizon Flying Museum, dedicated to keeping historical aircraft flying. The Western Horizon Flying Museum is unique among aviation museums since it provides no static aircraft displays, visitors can only visit the museum as flight students, flight instructors or passengers unless they are mechanics working on the aircraft.
Work on display includes night time aerials, air to air aerial photography and some beautiful fine art prints. Herb has made a special arrangement with the Professional Aerial Photographers Association to make these prints available for sale at a fraction of their normal retail price. The sale will include several prints that have been previously exhibited elsewhere, with slight damage, available at a substantial discount. If you are looking for a unique gift for a pilot friend for the upcoming holidays, you may want to check out this work.
PetalumaPilotSupplies.com, which shares space with Aerial Archives in Suite E of the building will also be open and be contributing pilot related products to the raffle.
Prints not sold at this event will be donated to an educational institution for kids with the hope of inspiring the next generation of aerial photographers and pilots. If you have any suggestions on worthy recipients, please contact Herb.
