This exhibition features work by local photographers, Deborah Austin and Stuart Holmes as well as ceramic sculpture by Perry Wray. Austin's interest in photography began in the darkroom at NPC. Her work has since evolved to use the digital medium, but retains its vivid portrayal of rich textures that make up the American West. Holmes' images illustrate his intrigue with color, light and value that characterize his dramatic scenes of regional landscape. Wray has worked in many artistic mediums, but finds himself continuously drawn to ceramics. His forms pair geometric and organic qualities, while celebrating the expressive nature of clay.
