ìCreative people from all over the region are expected to show up to start new work in a variety of media; they can also display related aviation finished work, or get professional tips for improving their skills,î said Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome President, Hugh Schoelzel. Noted aviation photographer, Gilles Auliard, president of Atlantic Flyer Magazine, will be on hand to give tips on aerial photography. He will also recognize winners of a joint Atlantic Flyer – Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome photography contest.
ìThe Aerodrome has always fascinated me to the extent that I created an entire series using the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome antique airplane theme,î said noted local photographer Joel Weisbrod, owner of jwArtWorks Photography and Gazen Gallery in the Village of Rhinebeck. Joelís work is on display and for sale in both of the Aerodrome gift shops; he will also be available to provide professional pointers.
