The first exhibitions of 2012 at the Chester County Art Association open tomorrow with a solo photography exhibit and a multi-media group show.
A free preview reception of a solo photography show by Bob Lott will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. this evening. The show, entitled “Nature, Landscapes, and Urban Decay,” will run through Feb. 24. "Contemporary Art Exhibition," a group show comprised of over 100 pieces representing different views of contemporary art, will run concurrently.
Lott came to specialize in photography after working for 43 years as an engineer at the DuPont Co. According to his biography, he seeks scenes that allow creation of a conversation among light, color and texture to highlight the beauty and mystery of nature. He often utilizes multiple images, captured by varying shutter speed (from dark to light) and combined in software during post-processing to capture the full dynamic range and depth of a scene as observed by the human eye.
The art association is located at 100 N. Bradford Ave. in West Chester. For more information about its offerings, visit http://www.chestercountyarts.org/ or call 610-696-5600.
