Luna Tricks Art exhibit to accompany concert

To accompany its stellar evening of music Saturday, the Salisbury Symphony is offering a “stellar” gallery of lunar art in the lobby of Keppel Auditorium.
On exhibit will be photography of Frank Chodl, a collection called “LunaTricks.” It features photographs of the full moon in a variety of locations.
Chodl, a symphony supporter, will be donating a portion of proceeds from sales of these photographs to the symphony.
According to Linda Jones, the symphony’s executive director, they were inspired to partner this display with this concert because the full moons remind them of the drum heads that will feature so prominently in the concert.
Chodl was inspired, too.
He says, “My inspiration? The first piece that I did in this series was the Pier. Looking at the transparency of the scene, I was struck by the beauty of the shimmering water and almost silhouetted pier in the sunlight. I imagined what it would look like in the moon light and the image grew out of what I envisioned it to be.
“From there, I recalled what Ansel Adams once said about revisiting his old negatives. He would take film that he shot decades before and apply his current interpretation to them with all of the new life experiences and skills. I went through literally thousands of slides that I had taken over the years and looked at them with my mind set on how I would interpret them now. I tell my students that the only limitation to what we can produce is our own imagination.”
Chodl’s students attend Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools where he is currently teaching photography/digital imaging.
As owner of his business, Chodl Photography, he specializes in commercial, industrial, aerial, and architectural photography and media production.
His work has been published in Canada, Great Britain, France, Germany, Italy, China, Japan, Brazil and Argentina, in addition to the United States.
This event marks the first time his work has been displayed in Salisbury.
