Livingston Arts Hosts New Photography Exhibit

Dwight Folts Opening Reception Thursday, June 30, 2016 from 5 to 7PM

Livingston Arts Member Artist Dwight Folts will open his new photography exhibit his exhibit “Ten years with a digital camera: Landscapes, wildlife and miscellany” at the Apartment One Gallery at the Livingston Arts Center at the Murray Hill Campus in Mount Morris, NY on June 30, 2016 from 5-7PM.

Folts’ exhibit draws from the travels of the photographer. His subject geography spans the Finger Lakes, and ranges as far south as Florida and as far north as Nova Scotia. The exhibit has a great variety of subjects, including “landscapes, wildlife, and one of the interior of an Acadian church,” says Folts.

Folts maintains a strong connection to the Genesee Valley and has exhibited work in Geneseo, Rochester, and Canandaigua. His local subjects in his new exhibit include, among others, the images of “Herding Sheep”,” Late Grapes” and “Autumn Drift”, from local sites.
Folts has “become very familiar with the Western Finger Lakes region,” and continues to focus on capturing “the beauty and diversity of the region. I photograph in all seasons and continue to be amazed by the changes the seasons bring.”

As a Member Artist, Folts benefits from the opportunity to connect with fellow members and artists of Livingston Arts, as well as the exhibit space of the Apartment One gallery, which features over 150 linear feet of exhibit space with full track lighting throughout and two kitchens to support openings.
The Apartment One Gallery is named in honor of the doctors who resided at the apartments at 4 Murray Hill Drive when the campus served as the NYS Tuberculosis Sanatorium from 1936-1971.

EVENT DETAILS:

The exhibit will feature an opening reception on Thursday, June 30 from 5-7PM. The exhibit is on display from June 30 through August 27, 2016. Gallery hours are 12:00-4:00 PM Tuesday through Friday, 11:30 AM-2:30 PM Saturday at Livingston Arts, 4 Murray Hill Drive, Mount Morris, NY, 14510. Admission is free and donations are welcome.
