November 2017

On the fourth of this month, Chris Ann Bachtel hosted an invitation only release party for Andrea’s new work titled, Jellies. The response to this event was incredibly enthusiastic. The energy of over 100 people was palpable and well exceeded our expectations. We cannot thank Chris Ann enough for the work she did to make this event a reality. Leslie Hunter and her event staff did an outstanding job preparing the food, staging the building, and so competently serving such a huge crowd. reception

Andrea began a new project she is calling Jellies. Seemingly a departure from her graphic architectural portfolios, there is a common thread in the fluidity of her new work and her liquid reflections.

On August 28, Andrea will be presenting her work to the Napa Valley Photographic Society.

Crocker MuseumThe invitation we each received to participate in the annual Art Auction, the Crocker Art Museum’s biggest event of the year, led to an experience that went beyond either of our expectations. Watching our large pieces of work being bid on and selling so well was simply thrilling. Just before the close of the Auction, Andrea’s image was the object of a bidding war and brought in over the stated value of the piece.

Mid-month was the annual Big Names/Small Art Auction at the Crocker Art Museum attended by over 1400 avid art collectors and enthusiasts! This fundraiser features artists' work that can only be 12" x 12" or smaller and the bidding starts at twenty-five dollars. It was a really fun event where we had the opportunity to meet the buyers of our two pieces. With many regional artists participating, including Gregory Kondos and Wayne Thiebaud, this is a chance to acquire something special for your home or office.

Color AwardsThe month started out with a bang! We were each invited to participate in the Crocker Art Museum's 38th Annual Art Auction Season this May and June. The two events are Big Names Small Art (BNSA) and Art Auction. This honor also brings with it the opportunity to give back to this wonderful institution.

We will both have one image in each event that will be exhibited in the Museum for three weeks before the auctions take place.


January 2016

We continued to have small groups visiting our gallery this month. In addition, we worked on our mission statement for the Salon Des Exclus:

Salon des Exclus
Est. September 2013

"If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas." -George Bernard Shaw

Rejection is the fate of most artists be it in the 21st, 20th or 19th century when Emperor Napoleon III felt pressured to order an exhibition of rejected works at the Salon des Refusés in Paris.

Salon des Exclus consists of four artists with four unique visions who have all struggled with rejection and disinterest from traditional venues. We have been excluded for not being edgy enough, for being too edgy. We have been excluded because our art doesn't look like photography. We have been excluded because it wasn't pink enough or not quite the right format or size.

We came together to support each other and to explore ways for our art to find broader exposure. Together we reject the idea that our art be relegated to anonymity.

The opening reception will be held on April 1 from 5:30 to 8:30pm at Gallery 625 in the Erwin Meier Administration Building, 625 Court Street, Woodland, CA.

Rob was interviewed by the Davis Enterprise for his story about the Hidden Treasure: Restoring Putah Creek portfolio.


October 2015

October was a very social month for us as we hosted two different groups at the gallery. The first was for the VIP invitation-only reception for the official release of the portfolio Hidden Treasure: Restoring Putah Creek.

Color AwardsIn addition to Putah Creek Council members, Senator Lois Wolk, left, spoke about her work and commitment to the restoration effort and her appreciation of the imagery of Hidden Treasure.

The following week we hosted another champagne reception for forty people to preview new work from Andrea's recent travels to Miami and Dallas. It was such a great event that we plan on doing periodic invitation-only soirees for people to view the work in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. If you would like to be included, please contact us and you will be placed on the invitation list.

Andrea was selected as one of the Lumas gallery artists to have her image City Landscape (Chicago 2011) displayed in the halls of the new MS5 German cruise ship that will launch in 2016.

Lumas gallery, headquartered in Berlin, saw Andrea's work when LensCulture published City Reflections last January. They contacted her in May and asked if she would be willing to enter into a contractual agreement to give them license to sell large, off-size limited editions of her limited edition images. She signed the contract this month. They selected five of Andrea's images and will be running 250 editions in two large sizes of each. The work will be available in any number of their 30 brick and mortar galleries, on-line, and in their catalogues. They have one gallery in SoHo, one in Dubai and Moscow, and in most major cities in Europe including two galleries in Paris.

Photo+, a printed monthly photography magazine in Seoul, South Korea, wrote to Andrea and asked if they could run a feature article on her for their August edition. They saw her City Reflections Project in Lenscratch last December and wanted to publish her photographs along with an interview about this body of work. We received a copy of this edition at the end of this month and have it at our studio for those of you who want to take a look. It's a beautiful magazine with 100,000 subscribers.

September 2013

We discovered a review of Andrea's City Reflections Project by David E. Wolf, a physicist and photographer from Boston, Massachusetts. What follows are excerpts from the review from his Hati and Skoll Gallery Blog:

"A few weeks ago I found in LensWork (magazine) the truly glorious and amazing work of photographer Andrea Stone. I was happy to find that these images could also be seen on "The Stone Photography" website, which Andrea shares with her husband Rob Stone.

Ms. Stone relates her transformative moment as being drawn to Claude Monet's work "The Magpie," and with that to the realization of what an image can be. She has made a study of cityscapes reflected in distorted patterns in window glasses. But such a description is really way too mechanical, because what she has created is in itself transformation. It bridges photography with impressionist art, creating magical pictures that could just as easily be paintings. When the building doing the reflecting is by architect Frank Gehry, the end result is simply amazing! Looking at her work is one of those great wow moments, when you just fall in love with photography all over again."

Photography Studio in Progress

Converting the second floor loft to make way for the new production studio.

Running out of room at the home studio (!), we decided to expand Stone Photography by remodeling our previous office space in Downtown Davis. The new venue will be a production studio and gallery. As before, the studio will be open by appointment and special events. We will be planning several Open Houses by year's end, extending into the beginning of 2014.


June 2013

This past winter, Andrea's City Reflections portfolio was accepted for publication by the international photography magazine, LensWork. Her work will appear in their online edition, LensWork Extended #106, the May/June issue. It will include a biography, the story behind the project, and an audio interview with the editor, Brooks Jensen. Needless to say, we are thrilled and proud of this accomplishment. For those of you who do not have a subscription to LensWork, we will make available the CD that will include everything in the publication. Just let us know.

We have made some exciting changes to our website, including transforming it into a true commerce site. Now you will be able to select a print and the size you want, place it in your cart, and check out with PayPal. PayPal is safe and secure, and you don't have to have a PayPal account to use it.

Finally, we are making headway with a goal we began talking about nearly three years ago. We envisioned our work, especially those large images shot in medium format, as ones that might find a home in the corporate world of financial institutions, law offices, hotels, and healthcare settings. Recently, we submitted our work for representation to two corporate art consulting firms, Art Consulting Services in Sacramento and DSA Fine Arts in New York, and we were accepted. We hope at some point, in the not-too-distant future, some of our photographs will be seen in public spaces!!

September brings some exciting news. Andrea has had four of her images selected for the juried art show at the 2012 Modesto International Architecture Festival. This is a great event promoting art and film that speaks to the creative contribution that architecture can make to the world we inhabit. The festival, running from September 15th through September 23rd, has lectures, films, exhibitions, tours and a gala first night opening on September 15th. The art show will be held in the newly opened Building Imagination Center where you can see Andrea's large prints for the first time.


August 2012

In late July and early August we returned to Portland, where Andrea's City Reflections Project began just a year ago. We shot in Portland and continued on to Seattle and Vancouver B.C.

As a result, we were able to capture reflections that would have eluded us at street level. We are still working on the images from Vancouver, which we hope to release in October.


July 2012

We are in two art gallery shows this month where examples of our newest work will be displayed. The first show, at the Viewpoint Photographic Art Center's Members' Show in Sacramento, will run from July 11th through August 4th. One feature of the gallery, which is a lot of fun, are the portfolio drawers containing the work of the members represented by the gallery. Our drawer contains a nice selection of matted 16" x 20" prints from our two new portfolios.

The second show, the 2012 Annual Juried Membership Show at the Blue Line Gallery in Roseville, will run from July 20th through August 18th. If you haven't discovered the Blue Line Gallery, you are in for a treat.

Finally, Rob has been selected as one of six artists representing the Viewpoint Photographic Art Center in the annual KVIE Art Auction this fall. His image entitled "Close To Home" will be auctioned during the live auction September 28th to the 30th. All proceeds go to our local PBS affiliate that serves the Sacramento region.

In the City Reflections Gallery we now have a new series of eight images, from our fall shoot in New York City, entitled Brandell's World. Kim Brandell's Trump Tower Globe sits at the southwest corner of Central Park at Columbus Circle. The first five images taken from this pounded metal structure at first appear abstract, but when you look closely, you will discover a world of reflections of people, taxis, and storefront signs at this busy intersection. The last three photographs, taken from the underside of this sculpture, capture abstract shapes, shadows, and textures, with the exception of the greenery from Central Park.

This fall we continued working on Andrea's project, City Reflections, with a trip to Chicago and New York City. We have now posted eleven new images from this shoot in the City Reflections Gallery.
