Eugene photographers display work at Knight Law Center
Husband and wife team make public exhibit debut with 'Natural Symmetry'
Local photographers Stan and Sharon Newman of Falling Art Photography are making their public debut with "Natural Symmetry: A Collection of Western Oregon Landscapes," at the University of Oregon Knight Law Center's second-floor gallery, 1515 Agate St. in Eugene. The exhibition runs from September 17 through December 28, 2012, and can be viewed during building hours from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
A public reception with light refreshments will be held from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 11, in the gallery.
The stunning 30 photographs of forests, mountains, waterfalls, and flowers capture the colors and vibrancy of the four seasons of western Oregon. There are a number of wonderful photos of Mt. Pisgah as well, demonstrating the beauty that can be enjoyed in a climb.
Both Stan and Sharon are Northwest natives. It was 14 years ago while hiking into and photographing some of Oregon's iconic waterfalls that the concept of "Falling Art" was born. A few years later they decided to pursue photography in a more serious fashion and really learn the craft.
Their photography of Mt. Pisgah has become recognized locally by the Friends of Buford Park who now use their photos for promotional purposes and fund drives.
The idea for this exhibit came from UO School of Law Building Manager Jim Horstrup who met the Newmans during one of his many hikes up Mt. Pisgah.
