Mother Divine Church- 51 N. Court St.- Richard Trice Images surreal and realistic from Jefferson County Park. Art walk Friday. May 6th 6:30 until 9:30 pm and Saturday, May 7th and Sunday, May 8th, from 1 pm -4 pm both days. Information from Richard Trice- “Within nature, in the many forms of light and shadow we sense something bigger and vaster than ourselves. Over many years, with photography, I have attempted to capture these moments in nature that reveal this eternity. In some cases, I rearrange several of these photos together to create another different image that is familiar. Although familiar, the image is at the same time, unfamiliar. This causes a positive leap of our imagination My purpose here is to explore visual associations which help us to think in a more intuitive manner. In a way, encouraging the creative problem-solving capacity of our innate sense of wonder. Realistic and surrealistic imagery. Looking at many of these images together is a grand and joyful experience”.
