The award-winning photographs of Bradenton photographer Linda Jane will be showcased in a solo exhibit starting Oct. 27 and running through Nov. 24 at Art Uptown in Sarasota. Contributed photos ARTS BRIEFS 'UP CLOSE & PERSONAL' OPENING OCT. 27 AT ART UPTOWN Art Uptown, Sarasota's oldest continuously operating artist-owned fine art gallery, will host an exhibition showcasing the photo- graphic artistry of Linda Jane in a solo show called "Up Close & Personal" from Oct. 27 through Nov. 24, the gallery has announced. An artist's reception will be held on Friday, Nov. 2, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the gallery, 1367 Main St. A photographic artist for 40 years, Jane has won numerous awards for her work. Her pieces have been published five times in the Photographer's Forum International annu- al book, The Best of Photography, and have been featured in the prestigious The Artists' Showcase quarterly magazine, a gallery news release says. One critic has noted of Jane, "Her unique eye captures her vast and varied passions in life, treating the viewer to a sight and detail that would otherwise elude the naked eye," the re- lease adds. Jane's works include a broad range of imagery, with scenes "from the tranquil and ethereal beauty of nature to the grit and determination of bull riders behind the scenes of a rodeo, the news release says. "Above all, my artistic approach is intimacy, whether I'm capturing Mother Nature or Hu- man Nature," she relates in the release. "In my commissioned portraits, I reveal the inner spirit of my subjects." All of Jane's images are printed as limited edi- tions of five, "to maintain their rarity and val- ue," she noted in the release.
