Library Art Exhibition Space - May 2022

The Vista Grande Public Library (VGPL) will feature two Eldorado artists Andrea Sharon and Susan Delaney – May 1-31, 2022:

Andrea Sharon – “Sky Journeys – Migratory Birds of New Mexico”

“I am very fortunate to have lived and worked in some of the most spectacular places in America. From the depths of Death Valley to the foothills of Denali, my career with the National Park Service has also been an open door to the world of photography. I credit the work of photographers and painters in the late 1800s as the primary impetus leading the U.S. Congress to establish Yellowstone as the world’s first national park—and to later establish the National Park Service as a Federal agency in 1916.”

 

Andrea believes that photographic images possess incredible power to capture our hearts and influence our thoughts, beliefs, attitudes, and actions. It is her hope to follow in the footsteps of the early photographer visionaries, and through her own images, to continue, in her own unique way, their pioneering efforts to lead viewers toward a sense of wonder, appreciation, and stewardship.

 

“My journey into the world of photography began with scientific-related photographic documentation in the field more than 35 years ago. Since then, I have expanded the scope of my personal expression to include fine art and “street” photography. During the past eight years I have been exploring mixed media using the 3,000-year-old process developed by the Greeks called encaustics.

 

I hope my photographic images awaken a sense of wonder in the viewer, fostering appreciation, and ultimately preservation of their habitats.”  All of Andrea’s photographs include fascinating information about the birds and their habitats for all ages.
