Duluth-based photographer Mary Buck, owner of Lightscapes Photography, will present an exhibit of art photography by herself and six former students during June at . The Studio 2.8 exhibit opens Friday, June 1, with a reception from 7 to 9 p.m.
When the recession hit in 2009, Buck found a new market in teaching adults all over the Atlanta area how to use their Digital SLR cameras. Little did she know how much her program would grow.
In 2011 Buck enrolled more than 400 students in her photography classes. Her Studio 2.8 Photography Learning Center now offers not only beginner level classes but more advanced classes in Adobe Photoshop® and lighting.
The other photographers displaying their work are Terry Chapman, Barbara Cozart, Kirk Talgo, Kristin Fuller, Nancy Wolfe and Sabrina Jivani. The exhibit of 30 photographs includes underwater photography, vivid landscapes, surreal images shot with film, local scenery, stunning black & white floral images, and artsy photographs with textures.
Photographs will be available for sale with prices ranging from $100 to $350.
Chocolate Perks, located at 3160 Main St. in Historic Downtown Duluth, will be serving wine, beer and coffee drinks. The exhibit will remain up for the entire month of June.
