Wide Awake and Dreaming

Craig Barton, Photography

Craig’s goal is to engage the conscious and the unconscious mind of the viewer. His images can evoke a memory of the moment so real that you are there: children have reached out to touch his work, thinking they could actually put their hand into the image. Craig thinks of his artwork as quiet companions, compatriots, a helping hand stimulating perseverance and inspiration in this world. Although the work has immediate impact, it also contains subtleties which takes years of interaction to know and appreciate; every day with an image is like another conversation with an old friend where you find something new and interesting to enrich the relationship.

While Craig still produces normal color images, in 2018 he began recording scenes in both standard digital color and in infrared so he could combine color, black and white, black and white from infrared, false color from infrared and false color from color into amalgams which Craig calls “Dream Series”. Working with digital high-resolution camera equipment, he makes multiple exposures of each frame and combines them saving detail in the highlights, the midrange, and the shadows (High Dynamic Range), and overlaps multiple frames to produce very high-resolution panoramas. Craig’s panoramas start at 12” x 30,” and some can go larger than 10’ without loss of detail.



Mark your calendars for the First Friday of every month to experience an exciting night of the arts, as 14 downtown galleries host special exhibits and serve refreshments from 5-8pm. Gallery Walk brings together art lovers and the community, showcasing an ever-evolving art scene featuring local, regional, national and international artists. Stroll the Gallery Walk all year long and explore the vibrant arts scene at your own pace.
