They offer year-round, free and low-cost programs and services for families and children to learn and play together.

On Our Walls: JMR Photography

Photographs by Jamie Richey are displayed on our artist wall for the month of August!

From Jamie:

From film and writing to painting and crafting to nature and meditation, my many and varied interests all have a voice in my portfolio. The work I curated for this show is some of my favorite and exhibits a couple of popular themes that surface regularly:

– I love to play around with text and how it can inform an image or guide a viewer toward a particular or alternative way of interpretation.
– I enjoy constructing a piece by using a variety of processes, whether it’s in the darkroom, incorporating alternative print-making techniques, or in the studio, where I have anything from glue guns and thread to paint and magazine clippings at my fingertips!
– The theme of mindfulness or stillness is seen both in the images that present a question and in my nature photography. Being an artist gives me the opportunity to slow down, look, and re-discover. I press pause with the camera shutter and capture those often overlooked details and fleeting thoughts to share with others.

I hope these images encourage you to take a moment – a longer gaze, get lost in thought and see where it takes you…
