A class on creative seeing. Each week we’ll sharpen your eye by honing in on a different element of composition: perspective, framing, line, shape, pattern, texture, color, balance and symmetry. The goal is to be more intentional in your photography – seeing good composition faster,  making the photo rather than taking it. Examples for inspiration, in-class shooting, weekly assignments and critiques will help you pull it all together into remarkable photos.

Backstage Pass is coming back on April 26, for a five concert series!

We don’t have a stage, but we do have a great parking lot at the Center for the Arts, so this year, we’re going to rename our series Backstage Pass @ The Music Lot.

We’ll have everyone’s favorite things about the event—drinking, tables, live music, and fun!

The concerts will begin at 6:30pm, and the Center for the Arts parking lot will open at 5:30pm.

This year’s line-up is:
April 26 – Andrew Tinch Jazz Group
May 17 – Jeff Carter Group
May 31 – The Jam Kings
June 14 – Anthony Peebles
June 28 – Reasonable Doubt

Tickets are $5. Tables are available for purchase at $50. Find more information on the Panama City Center for the Arts website at www.pccenterforthearts.com/backstage-pass.

Rain decisions will be made by 4:30 PM on the day of the concert and reschedule dates will be determined and announced should they be necessary.

The concerts are made possible by the following organizations: Innovations Federal Credit Union, Hancock-Whitney Bank, Island Junkies, Southern Supply and Downtown Dance.

More About Andrew Tinch
Andrew Tinch is a senior at Mosley High School, and the leader of a popular local youth jazz ensemble called Hornstew. His main instruments are guitar and trumpet, though he also plays piano, organ, bass, and accordian. This concert will feature Andrew on Guitar, Nathanael Smith on piano, Mikailo Kasha on bass and drummer, Charles Pagano.

More about Backstage Pass
Backstage Pass grew out of the Concerts in the Park series begun in 1986, by Florida First Federal and late community leader, Roger Schadd. From 1986 to 2008, free outdoor concerts were held every summer featuring local bands. In order to keep the series going during the recession, Backstage Pass began welcoming guests through the Backstage Door of the Marina Civic Center in 2009, and the first band was “On Call”, led by the late Hulon Crayton. Tickets were $5 (and they still are) and the community embraced it from the first downbeat. We are so grateful to continue this wonderful tradition.

[more+]

In the late 1700’s, William Bartram explored the Southeast under extreme conditions. He encountered exotic diseases, hostile natives, raging rivers, and wild creatures, and he studied them all. Linnaeus called him the greatest botanist in the world.

But Bartram was actually following in the footsteps of another naturalist who explored the southeast sixty-two years earlier—Mark Catesby. Catesby conducted one of the earliest and most comprehensive studies of the flora and fauna of southeastern North America, which resulted in 263 watercolors and drawings, hundreds of preserved specimens, and fascinating field notes.

In her talk, “Before Bartram: Artist-Naturalist Mark Catesby,” at the Panama City Center for the Arts on May 24, at 6pm, Mallory O’Connor will be drawing parallels between Bartram and Catesby’s adventures and works. Attendees will also learn more about the historical and cultural context of their explorations and findings to more fully understand the importance and impact their travels had on the scientific community and world.

The lecture is the last in a series of humanities lectures scheduled throughout the year that are sponsored by the Florida Humanities Council with funds from the Florida Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs.

Doors open at 5:30pm. Tickets cost $5 for members ($10 for non-members) and are for sale on the Panama City Center for the Arts website: www.pccenterforthearts.com/speaker-series.

More about Mallory O’Connor
Mallory O'Connor is a writer, an art historian, and a musician. She holds degrees in art, art history, and American history from Ohio University. For twenty years she taught art history at the University of Florida and at Santa Fe College. During this time, she also wrote hundreds of magazine articles and critical essays, and curated numerous exhibitions for museums and galleries.

She is the author of two non-fiction books, Lost Cities of the Ancient Southeast and Florida's American Heritage River, both published by the University Press of Florida. Her American River trilogy is her first foray into fiction novels.

Born in Illinois and raised on a ranch on the American River in Northern California, Mallory now resides with her husband, artist John O'Connor, in Micanopy, Florida.

More About The Jam Kings
The Jam Kings—keyboardist John Russo, drummer Joey Kirkland and bass player Johnnie Burrows—are a cover band specializing in rock, pop, country and piano bar standards. They have described their target audience as middle-aged people who appreciate music and like to dance. Russo and Kirkland started the band a few years ago, but they needed a guitar player. That’s when they approached Burrows. It took some convincing, but he finally agreed and The Jam Kings were born.

Tackle difficult exposures and those photos you just can’t get quite right. We will learn how to use channels, layer masks, blend modes, selective sharpening, selections by color or object, and eliminate color cast along with some tomfoolery with each of the above. In class you will work along with the instructor, and then practice on your own images.

You will want to have a working knowledge of Photoshop basics and be familiar with the layout and menu bars. It is best to work with RAW files. (You may use JPEG files, but your results may differ from those working in RAW.)

Requirements for class: A laptop with at least Photoshop 7 or later version.

A class on creative seeing. Each week we’ll sharpen your eye by honing in on a different element of composition: perspective, framing, line, shape, pattern, texture, color, balance and symmetry. The goal is to be more intentional in your photography – seeing good composition faster,  making the photo rather than taking it. Examples for inspiration, in-class shooting, weekly assignments and critiques will help you pull it all together into remarkable photos.

More About Andrew Tinch
Andrew Tinch is a senior at Mosley High School, and the leader of a popular local youth jazz ensemble called Hornstew. His main instruments are guitar and trumpet, though he also plays piano, organ, bass, and accordian. This concert will feature Andrew on Guitar, Nathanael Smith on piano, Mikailo Kasha on bass and drummer, Charles Pagano.

More about Backstage Pass
Backstage Pass grew out of the Concerts in the Park series begun in 1986, by Florida First Federal and late community leader, Roger Schadd. From 1986 to 2008, free outdoor concerts were held every summer featuring local bands. In order to keep the series going during the recession, Backstage Pass began welcoming guests through the Backstage Door of the Marina Civic Center in 2009, and the first band was “On Call”, led by the late Hulon Crayton. Tickets were $5 (and they still are) and the community embraced it from the first downbeat. We are so grateful to continue this wonderful tradition.

In the late 1700’s, William Bartram explored the Southeast under extreme conditions. He encountered exotic diseases, hostile natives, raging rivers, and wild creatures, and he studied them all. Linnaeus called him the greatest botanist in the world.

But Bartram was actually following in the footsteps of another naturalist who explored the southeast sixty-two years earlier—Mark Catesby. Catesby conducted one of the earliest and most comprehensive studies of the flora and fauna of southeastern North America, which resulted in 263 watercolors and drawings, hundreds of preserved specimens, and fascinating field notes.

In her talk, “Before Bartram: Artist-Naturalist Mark Catesby,” at the Panama City Center for the Arts on May 24, at 6pm, Mallory O’Connor will be drawing parallels between Bartram and Catesby’s adventures and works. Attendees will also learn more about the historical and cultural context of their explorations and findings to more fully understand the importance and impact their travels had on the scientific community and world.

The lecture is the last in a series of humanities lectures scheduled throughout the year that are sponsored by the Florida Humanities Council with funds from the Florida Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs.

Doors open at 5:30pm. Tickets cost $5 for members ($10 for non-members) and are for sale on the Panama City Center for the Arts website: www.pccenterforthearts.com/speaker-series.

More about Mallory O’Connor
Mallory O'Connor is a writer, an art historian, and a musician. She holds degrees in art, art history, and American history from Ohio University. For twenty years she taught art history at the University of Florida and at Santa Fe College. During this time, she also wrote hundreds of magazine articles and critical essays, and curated numerous exhibitions for museums and galleries.

She is the author of two non-fiction books, Lost Cities of the Ancient Southeast and Florida's American Heritage River, both published by the University Press of Florida. Her American River trilogy is her first foray into fiction novels.

Born in Illinois and raised on a ranch on the American River in Northern California, Mallory now resides with her husband, artist John O'Connor, in Micanopy, Florida.

More About The Jam Kings
The Jam Kings—keyboardist John Russo, drummer Joey Kirkland and bass player Johnnie Burrows—are a cover band specializing in rock, pop, country and piano bar standards. They have described their target audience as middle-aged people who appreciate music and like to dance. Russo and Kirkland started the band a few years ago, but they needed a guitar player. That’s when they approached Burrows. It took some convincing, but he finally agreed and The Jam Kings were born.

More about Backstage Pass
Backstage Pass grew out of the Concerts in the Park series begun in 1986, by Florida First Federal and late community leader, Roger Schadd. From 1986 to 2008, free outdoor concerts were held every summer featuring local bands. In order to keep the series going during the recession, Backstage Pass began welcoming guests through the Backstage Door of the Marina Civic Center in 2009, and the first band was “On Call”, led by the late Hulon Crayton. Tickets were $5 (and they still are) and the community embraced it from the first downbeat. We are so grateful to continue this wonderful tradition.

Tackle difficult exposures and those photos you just can’t get quite right. We will learn how to use channels, layer masks, blend modes, selective sharpening, selections by color or object, and eliminate color cast along with some tomfoolery with each of the above. In class you will work along with the instructor, and then practice on your own images.

You will want to have a working knowledge of Photoshop basics and be familiar with the layout and menu bars. It is best to work with RAW files. (You may use JPEG files, but your results may differ from those working in RAW.)

Requirements for class: A laptop with at least Photoshop 7 or later version.
