Captured art exhibit highlights local photography

Still life, wild life, night sights, a dam site... this month’s exhibit at Peace Gallery North, Captured, opened Friday tonight. It features more than 50 pieces from eight local photographers.

“I felt like photography was under-represented,” says gallery manager Bev Berg.

“We have a lot of painters in a whole bunch of mediums and different styles, but there were very few photographs in the gift shop and not many opportunities in shows for photographers to show their artwork.”

Featured photographers include Don Hoffmann, Tammy Bovee, Victor Irene, Diane Watson, Ann Musgrove, Sharon Gaunt, and Sandra and Steve Milner.

“I wanted to celebrate the art of photography. There was no theme. It was open to whatever the photographers wanted to show,” Berg says.

Captured is on display through August.
