“Celebrating Nature’s Art” including “Tiny Worlds”
Photo Exhibit by Gail E Rowley ~ Ozark Stream Photography
West Plains Council on the Arts (WPCA) will host a photo exhibition by Gail E Rowley ~ Ozark Stream Photography. The exhibit will be displayed at the Gallery at the Center, West Plains Civic Center from January 30 – February 25, 2018. The Gallery, on the mezzanine, is open to the public during regular Civic Center hours.
Gail Rowley is a nature photographer who lives with her husband near Willow Springs, Missouri. She has been exploring the outdoors all her life. She enjoys observing and photographing some of nature’s treasures, including ‘hidden worlds’. She owns Ozark Stream Photography and sells prints, as well as nature notecards in some local stores and parks. Tom makes the solid wood frames for her larger photos.
Gail also works on native plant restorations on their farm, and is photo-documenting much of the native plant world there. She loves to garden, hike, float the rivers and spend time with her family.
“I love experiencing and learning about the natural world. Native plants and animals of the Ozark Plateau have a particular place in my heart. While I work to capture some of nature’s magic on camera, I’ve found that I am the one who’s been captured by this awesomeness called nature.”
Her nature photography will include birds, springs, macros of tiny subjects as well as super-macros of what she calls “worlds within worlds.” Her art will be displayed in several ways. Some frames will be unique “Live Edge” made with Ozark woods.
WPCA will host an Exhibit Reception on Saturday, February 3, from 2-4 p.m., in the Gallery at the Center. All are invited to attend, view and discuss these wonderful pieces. The exhibit is co-sponsored by the West Plains Civic Center and West Plains Council on the Arts, with partial funding provided by Missouri Arts Council, a state agency.
