A new exhibition showcasing the fine art photography of Steve Elliott and Wayne Wilson will be on display at the Orland Art Center Feb. 7 through March 1.
“Double Vision” is a show that proves visual drama is achieved in a variety of ways.
Steve Elliott and Wayne Wilson”s fascination with photography began early in their lives, and both were encouraged by their families to explore the artistic possibilities of the camera. Yet each man found a different and distinct way to take that early interest to a completely personal and profound level.
Elliott”s creativity hones in on the subtle, nuanced beauty in the everyday.
His is a carefully considered, quiet approach to his visual surroundings, like the soft-feathered wings of a bird or the dance of poppies in the breeze are like whispers that capture the attention of many and by their gentle persuasion, muffle all other sounds.
Wilson focuses on the dramatic sense of space and time that turns a rural landscape into a strong message about a way of life, or the sheer beauty of strength in the waves that pound a ragged shoreline. His striking and spectacular sharp urban scenes and riveting views of wide-open vistas command a viewers” attention.
A reception will be 3-7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 7, at the gallery, 732 Fourth St., Orland.
Refreshments will be served and there will be a live performance by Sean Bostrom on the baby grand piano.
