Lumen Shadows and Chroma, Opening Reception MAR 9 at Mission Trails Regional Park Center Gallery

Three Photographers to Exhibit at Mission Trails Regional Park Visitor Center
“Lumen, Shadows, & Chroma” an exhibition of awe-inspiring fine art photography of nature scapes by award winning artists Eileen Mandell, Dana Parnes, and Dana Levine runs from Sat., March 1 through Wed., Mar. 28th, from 9 am to 5 pm daily, at Mission Trails Regional Park Visitor Center Art Gallery, One Fr. Junipero Serra Trail, San Diego, CA 92119, with a reception on Sun, March 9th, from 1 - 4 pm.  The exhibition is free and open to the public.
The title of the exhibition refers to key concepts crucial to a photographer's vision.  Light, shadow and color portray the subject matter of the exhibition - plants, animals and the sea. Whether in black and white or intense color, high impact or quiet contemplation, all the images in the show communicate a lasting impression on the viewer. 
Eileen Mandell, of El Cajon, an East County educator, is well-known for her nature photography and innovative work with an infra-red camera.  She looks for shapes, lines, and patterns to capture detail, express movement, and discover the play of light on the subject.   In this exhibition she will be showing new photographs of horses.
Dana Parnes, of Rancho Bernardo, a nationally published photographer, captures breathtaking portraits of nature.  Her work speaks to the heart and expresses her deep passion and artistic vision of the magnificence all around, and within each of us.  In this exhibition she will be premiering exquisite fine-art photographs of the ocean, whales, sunflowers, and more. 
Dana Levine, of La Jolla, a retired scientist, has had her work shown nationally. Transforming the world she sees through photography is an exciting, creative adventure for her especially when she encounters tranquil, reflective spaces or people with a  sparkle in their eye.  In this exhibition she will be showing new photographs of plants transformed into symmetrical patterns.  Info contact Dana Levine:
