The Louise Gallery at Mulberry Art Studios will be home to the Impressions of Nature exhibit throughout the month of June. The exhibit, which features a combination of nature and wildlife photography from Todd Smith, opens with a First Friday Reception on June 1st from 5pm until 8pm. Mulberry Art Studios is located in beautiful downtown Lancaster at 19-21 North Mulberry Street, and holds regular gallery hours on weekdays from 10am until 4pm with evenings and weekends available upon request.
Impressions of Nature aims to inspire the naturalist within all of us. Todd’s specialty is nature and wildlife photography, while adding what he calls a fine-art twist. His intention is to photograph the things we see in everyday nature, and present them back to the passerby from a unique angle.
When not kayaking or canoeing on local rivers and streams, or hiking the back country at a local state park, he is researching techniques and fine tuning his photographic craft. Not one to ever be satisfied with anything less than his own artistic perfection, Todd has recently decided to accept the challenge of inviting the public to view his art. His philosophy is that a photograph never truly lives until it is printed, and shared with more than one pair of eyes.
One of Todd’s mantras in life is that we must always remain teachable. Always having room to grow or to look at common scenery from a new and fresh perspective, and give respect and admiration back to the natural world around us.
