Artist Talk: “What Is it About the iPhone That Changes Image Makers’ Creative Lives?”
Day: November 5, 2021
Location: Cape Cod Art Center | 3480 Route 6A, Barnstable, MA,
Meri Walker has spent her adult life at the nexus of fine art photography, printmaking, publication and web design, photojournalism, copywriting and editing cultures. She’s had a busy life working in, teaching and mentoring learners in all these interest areas. In 2006, she relocated to southern Oregon to slow down, live closer to nature, and focus her attention on her love of photography. Three years later, she picked up her first iPhone and fell down a rabbit hole into a brand new artform that offered her picture-making and -sharing opportunities she’d never imagined possible. It’s been 12 years since she put down her big cameras and started calling herself iPhoneArtGirl. Her artist talk for the CCAC will offer traditional photographers and printmakers, graphic and multimedia artists an overview of her journey and engage the audience in a lively conversation about new horizons in 21st century creative self-expression and visual communication.
Artist Bio: Meri Aaron Walker has been a photographer and printmaker for over 50 years. Since 2009, she has used only her iPhones and iPads to make images that have been widely awarded and collected, including a recent purchase by Harvard Medical School for their Transformational Medicine Building. Meri has an MA from the University of Texas, Austin, where she also taught photography. She has extensive experience in photojournalism, fine art photography, printmaking and she has juried six national and international mobile photography exhibitions. Prior to becoming “iPhoneArtGirl,” Meri’s traditional photographic and alternative process prints have been widely collected for over 40 years. With extensive experience both as a classroom teacher and as an online coach and small-group instructor in her private practice, Meri is a valued mobile photography and art teacher at arts centers and colleges on the east, west and third coasts of the US.
