Ronald J. Saunders

An Exhibition of Fine Art Photography Halleck Bar Gallery April 22, 2019 - August 19, 2019 Ronald J. Saunders is a fine art landscape photographer from Reno, Nevada. The primary objective of his work is to capture the natural beauty of the high desert. “My hope is to create an artwork that invites the viewer to look closer and to consider what is before them. A monochromatic print has no color...It depends on lines, form, shades of grey, and light...There is a special drama about the image.”

Mark Hayward

Feathers: Western Bird Photography

Barrick Gallery

May 6 - August 8, 2019

Mark Hayward began photographing wildlife in the 1970s. At that same time he started printing images in a chemical darkroom using film negative and enlarger techniques. When digital cameras, post processing, and digital printing became affordable for most photographers, Mark jumped on board. Hayward is an avid user of today’s digital photographic techniques. Also, he believes that the ultimate expression of a photograph is a finely crafted print and the only way to archive an image for future generations. The print materializes his vision in a real and tangible way that is durable and collectable. In order to be a wild life photographer, patience is needed, and one must leave great expectations at home because disappointment waits many times. Making plans to be in the best location and understanding the behavior and habits of your wildlife subject is helpful but does not guarantee success. No matter their size and stature in nature, Mark finds beauty and connection to all creatures he observes and photographs.
