A new exhibit will grace the walls of Lassen County Arts Council Gallery for the month of February. The gallery is set to host an exhibit of photography created by photographer Doug Smith.
A reception for the exhibit will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 11, at the Lassen County Arts Council, 807 Cottage St. The public is invited to enjoy refreshments, view the photographs and meet the artist.
The exhibit featuring the photography of Dough Smith will open on Feb. 3 and run through Feb. 28.
Bev Mendoza, Lassen County Arts Council gallery director, said the exhibit will showcase 40 works of art depicting landscapes and wildlife.
“I’m inspired by the wonder of nature” Smith said about his work. “To be in a special place at just the right time to capture an amazing sunset, the wind rippling across a mountain lake, the moon rising over a snowy peak or a great blue heron stalking its next meal brings a feeling of peace, contentment, and awe at the glorious world around us. My hope is to be able to share that experience with others through my photographs.”
All of Doug’s photographs are original, limited edition prints, and all except metal prints are printed and framed in his studio using pigment-based inks and premium quality papers and canvas.
