Opening Night Reception with photographer Kim Hubbard

Posted in News on September 28, 2012 by winderbinder

As part of the 7th Annual One Bridge Art Festival, there will be an opening night reception for photographer Kim Hubbard.

A native of Chattanooga, Kim has worked as a photographer and photo editor at Audubon for nearly a decade before joining the staff of National Geographic as a Senior Photo Editor in 2010.

The exhibit will include images from Alaska, Hawaii, India, Madagascar, Kenya, Ecuador, the South and photos from her recent trip to North Korea.

The reception will take place on Friday from 6 to 8pm inside the gallery, with the exhibition continuing in the gallery for the entire month of October.

A native of Chattanooga, Kim Hubbard took her first photos at the age of four. (She photographed her cat, and a rock.) She’s been photographing animals and the natural world ever since.

Kim attended Hixson High School and UTC. She interned as a photographer at the Chattanooga Times before earning her master’s degree in journalism from the University of Missouri-Columbia. After a brief stint at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that involved many late-night dinners at Waffle House, a job offer at Discover magazine prompted a move to New York City in 1995. She remained in New York for 15 years, working primarily as the photo editor for Audubon magazine.

In 2010 she relocated to Washington, D.C., to become a senior photo editor for National Geographic. Natural history and science stories are her specialty.

In addition to her love of nature, Kim is drawn to quirky, offbeat subjects. An all-access pass to the Westminster Dog Show in 2011, and a lug nut given to her directly off of Dale Earnhardt Jr’s car during a pit stop at Talladega in 2000 are among her prized possessions. Documenting the 2010 Gulf oil spill for Audubon remains one of the most meaningful assignments of her career. Kim’s photography has appeared in a diverse array of publications around the world, ranging from the New York Times to Film Comment magazine.

Kim’s travels have taken her to nearly 30 countries, allowing her to chase lemurs through Madagascar, ride the dunes in Dubai, and eat lemon ants in Ecuador. Her most recent trip was to North Korea in September 2012.

If It’s Fall, It Must Be Festivals (Chattanooga Pulse)

Nice article in the Chattanooga Pulse today that talks about Three Sisters, Wine Over Water and One Bridge.

Here is the One Bridge part of the article…

One Bridge Folk Art Festival
No music this year, but you can hum to yourself during the 3rd Annual One Bridge Folk Art Festival.  This open-air event will take place on the North Shore in the parking lot adjacent to Winder Binder Gallery of Folk Art.

According to Winder Binder owner David Smotherman, “The concept of a festival dedicated primarily to Southern folk art was conceived in a brainstorming session in early 2006 during a monthly artist meeting at the Winder Binder Gallery.  Many self-taught and traditional folk artists felt that Chattanooga needed a dedicated event to showcase local folk talent.”

Almost two dozen local and regional artists will be participating in this year’s festival, including those working in paint, metal, glass, sculpture, mixed media assemblage, and printmaking.

Free.  Noon to 8 p.m. Saturday, noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. Next to Winder Binder Gallery, 40 Frazier Avenue.  More info online at http://www.onebridgefolkartfestival.wordpress.com.
