Tim Ernst Photography exhibit opens January 20!
"Arkansas Wilderness: A Rare Quality of Light"
The work of renowned Arkansas nature photographer Tim Ernst will be on display at John Brown University’s Windgate Visual Arts West gallery beginning Tuesday, January 20. Ernst’s photography has been seen in hundreds of national, regional, and local publications including National Geographic, Outdoor Photographer, and the New York Times.
An opening reception for the exhibit entitled “Arkansas Wilderness: A Rare Quality of Light,” will be held from 6-7 pm in the gallery. Following the reception a presentation entitled “Arkansas Nightscapes: Wilderness Photos from Twilight ‘Till Dawn” will be made at 7 pm in the Simmons Great Hall. The exhibit will be open until February 13 and both the gallery opening and special presentation are free and open to the public.
This is the second time that Ernst has visited JBU,” said Charles Peer, gallery director. “He first lectured and exhibited photos in the fall of 2004. It was one of those exhibits that everyone responded to,” Peer said. “He does a good job of connecting with his audience and sharing information about his shots. All of the photographs in the exhibit were taken in Arkansas. We are so fortunate to have someone of his talent shooting our local landscape.”
Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-4 p.m.
Sunday 2-4 p.m.
Windgate Visual Arts West
The ground floor of the Windgate Visual Arts West building houses a generous gallery room, capable of hosting a variety of shows. The lighting is perfect and the open space creates a great environment for receptions held at the opening of all new galleries (always including great food!). John Brown University has a wide variety of amazing artists in the upcoming gallery shows, and has hosted prominent shows such as Tim Ernst, the St. John's Bible, and Makoto Fujimura. The gallery also hosts many of John Brown University's finest local artists, faculty and students. We also have a Student Gallery in our other building, Windgate Visual Arts East. This features the work of JBU students in solo and collaborative shows.
