Artist: Don Lewis
Artist's Statement: Don Lewis has been taking photos off and on since he was old enough to hold a Kodak Brownie (a long time). In 2004 he bought his first digital camera and it rejuvenated his interest. He enjoys taking photos of landscapes, flowers and wildlife. National Parks of the Western U.S. are his favorite places to go. His favorite photos have lots of vivid colors.
Artist: Kathy Steinberg
Smoky Hill Library
Artist's Statement: Kathy has been painting for about 15 years, creating representational art, mostly traditional landscapes, often from her own travel photography. Recently, she has expanded her work into the field of abstract art, resulting in a few paintings in that genre. She has studied at the Denver Art Museum and the Art Students' League of Denver and is currently a student of Doug Dawson. Her paintings have shown at the Art Students League, the Art Students League Summer Art Market, the Redline Gallery, Temple Emanuel and various Arapahoe County libraries. After a career in education, corporate communication and career counseling, she has found this creative journey in art to be fulfilling and exciting, a wonderful transition into retirement years.
Artist: Ted Williams
Artist's Statement: My interest in photography rekindled a few years ago when we bought a new digital SLR camera with a couple kit lenses. While the fundamentals are still the same, the new mostly digital technology makes it challenging and fun. You can experiment and learn quickly by making high quality mistakes that usually don’t cost much. Once in a while you get a good picture, or two. I have lived in Colorado for a long time and am making time to revisit some unique places in the back country that I traveled to and through years ago. A few of these areas are featured in this series, as are several local inhabitants I met and worked with in a photography class that featured amazing creatures from Hawk Quest. Despite big advancements in photography and digital technology in general, taking good pictures still requires a lot of diverse skills, persistence, patience and luck. I hope you like these scenes as much as I enjoyed capturing them.
