Art on the Library returns to the Estes Valley Library this season, with a show by native photographer and author John Shelton. The images are on show within the Library’s First Floor hearth nook.
Shelton lives in Estes Park and travels extensively to help his work. Before arriving in Colorado, he had lived in Nevada, Idaho, and Illinois.
“My photography starts as a reflection of nature being spiritual, something vastly larger, more significant, more relevant, and yet perhaps simpler and more peaceful than we perceive our daily passage,” says Shelton of his strategy. “I like to isolate the power and beauty of our environment, but I also like to explore man’s interaction with that environment, whether natural or not,” he provides.
“Focusing primarily on natural landscapes, urbanscapes, and architectural work, my imagery emphasizes these natural and manmade elements, separate or together, exploring relationships, drawing attention to the depth and power of my subjects, and isolating their importance within the moment.”
More details about the Local Artist Program is accessible on the Library web site. The web site incorporates the Exhibit and Display Policy and a kind for artists to specific curiosity in displaying their works. Visit estesvalleylibrary.org > Services > Local Artist Program.
