Karl Joyce, local portrait artist, will be the featured artist at the Wayne County Council for the Arts Gallery Exhibit and Opening Reception from 5 until 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 1. His most recent show “Expressions of Emotions” is opening at Wayne County Council for the Arts, 108 West Miller St. in Newark. The images cover a wide range of subjects including customized high school senior portraits, a typical outdoor family sitting, creative wedding enlargements and images of babies. Explanations of how the special effects and retouching were obtained will be displayed next to the portraits. Digital imaging and artwork allows for the creation of special effects that customize and enhance the portraits. Joyce has been creating professional portraits for over 25 years. He has a master's degree from RIT and has both attended and taught at many photographic conferences and classes over the past years.
