Gallery to showcase ‘Earth Palette,’ a ‘painted’ canvas photography exhibit
Work of Ashland's Sean Bagshaw on display through August
Beginning March 15, the University of Oregon School of Law will exhibit “Earth Palette,” a photography collection by Ashland photographer Sean Bagshaw. The exhibition runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Knight Law Center’s second-floor gallery until August 24. A public reception with Bagshaw will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, April 5, at the Knight Law Center.
“Earth Palette” reflects Bagshaw’s passion for exploring the world. Bagshaw’s inspiration comes from natural materials that enhance his photography: light, color, texture,shape, motion, geology and meteorology. The exhibition, however, is more than photos; it showcases Bagshaw’s love and appreciation for landscape.
“I want to communicate my deeper human experience, something that evokes wonder, inspiration, imagination, emotion and scientific understanding,” said Bagshaw.
The exhibit follows an Earth palette theme in an untraditional format for photography. Bagshaw explained, “All of the images have been printed to fine art standards on specially coated canvases.”
Outdoor Photographer Magazine said that Sean Bagshaw, “…is a widely recognized photographer who has made his mark by taking steps away from the more staid, traditional landscape scene. The torch is passing.”
Growing up, Bagshawtraveled the world with his family. Currently, Bagshaw lives in Ashland, Oregon, with his wife and two sons. He continues his adult life looking for adventure and traveling. In 2001, Bagshaw started Outdoor Exposure Photography.
Since opening, private and commercial collections have sought after his photographs. In addition, Bagshaw has featured his photos in art shows and galleries. Bagshaw has wonnational and international awards for his art and he is regularly published in magazines, books and calendars.
The exhibition is free and open to the public. For more information about the “Earth Palette” exhibit, contact Dom Vetri at firstname.lastname@example.org.
