RECENT WORKS BY REID HALL
Centre Gallery East.
"Being a boy with autism, I always find new ways to take photos. Color is something that really makes me excited to do what I do. I have been taking photos since 2007. I have always enjoyed art. I decided to make my solo show about the 3 things that get me most excited to take photos, Sky, Light and Water. I have a waterproof camera that allows me to take really neat shots underwater. My light photographs work best at night. I turn the shutter speed as slow as possible and then move the camera really fast. What happens is usually really interesting. Usually, when I see a cool sunset, I will take a photo of it, which is where my sky photos typically come from."
BEYOND THE FRONT DOOR By Sarah Blankenship
Sarah has been drawing her entire life, and nature is her greatest inspiration. Green grass, delicate flowers, human figures, and butterfly wings sometimes lead into the realms of fantasy, fiction, and experimentation with various media. Sarah lives near Ashland with her son, a small garden, a beloved pair of roller skates, and not nearly enough art supplies. Centre Gallery, West.
