Melany Sarafis served her country for 24 years and recently retired from the USAF as a First Sergeant.   She thinks it's really stupid when photographers refer to themselves in the 3rd person on their biographies.   I needed to do something 'low speed' after a successful but stressful military career.   I've have been an avid photographer for a few years and enjoy this 'internal' creative process and I was a full time student at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Tx, pursuing a BFA in Studio Arts with an emphasis in Photography and Jewelry/Metalsmith Work.   After taking an Art...more

Melany Sarafis Receives Best In Show In Illuminance Photography Exhibit

Wolfforth, TX - June 10th, 2015

Melany Sarafis' photograph, Night Sky Over Rural Texas, was named Best in Show in the Illuminance photography competition. Illuminance 2015 is a national competitive exhibition featuring photographic work from thirty-two artists. This biennial event provides an opportunity for photographers at all levels to share their artwork. This year's juror is Rixon Reed of Santa Fe's photoeye gallery. 2015 Theme: The Feeling of the Rural Night. From Brassaï’s Paris de Nuit (Paris by Night) to Todd Hido’s recent body of work of homes and streets after dark, photographers have captured the distinctly different feeling that pervades nighttime. The curtain of darkness can enhance mystery and intrigue, elicit fear or wonder, and create a wide variety of responses that are different from a person’s daytime experience. Join us at The Buddy Holly Center in Lubbock Texas at 3 PM on Saturday, August 15th for a closing reception, award presentation, and gallery talk by juror Rixon Reed.
