Mission Statement

Our guiding philosophy is the the promotion, exploration, and celebration of the photographic arts through artist exhibitions, community events and educational opportunities. Our goal is to expose the public to the photographic art form while spotlighting local talent, as represented by area photo clubs, as well as individuals who are considered to be excellent examples in their respective genres.

 

Success of fotoModesto 2017 and looking forward to 2018

Our premiere event was held in February of 2017 during which 90 photographers exhibited their talents at 22 venues throughout Modesto. The experience was a huge success and has lead to the event growing to include more artist, venues and events for 2018.

Concept Text

The proliferation of cell phone cameras and other picture taking devices has turned us into a nation of photographers. At the same time the physical display of artwork, specifically photography, in the Modesto area is becoming increasingly difficult to come by as many of the area galleries have closed in recent years.  This has lead to far to many beautiful pieces of art existing only in a digital format and has kept the local photography community from sharing their artwork in a meaningful way.

 

fotoModesto is an opportunity to change that, to allow artists to showcase their artwork in public spaces, provide educational opportunities to those who wish to learn, further the advancement of photography as an art form and to allow artists to share their passion for the betterment of the community at large.
