Art opening reception & auction: Twelve

Photo by Megan Carpenter

Armed with the same film camera, an Olympus Trip 35, and the choice of black and white or color film, 12 local residents are capturing their view of life on Galveston Island. For the past three years, Twelve has put cameras in the hands of local residents, asking them to capture their view of life in 24 photos or less.

A project created in 2011 by Will Wright and Shannon Guillot-Wright, photography is used to highlight the diversity of people, the scene and architecture. At the conclusion of their roll of film, each photographer chooses one of their photos for public display and auction. This year, proceeds from the ArtWalk event will benefit Galveston Art Center.

The 2013 participants include Allison Buchtien, David Canright, Joel Camacho, Kim Cherryhomes–Bertinni, Ellie Cherryhomes, Denice Franke, Mike Gilbert, Rachel Wiley Janota, Linda Ercole Musso, Dr. Ben Raimer. Manny Salazar and Paco Vargas.
