The show will be on display in the Atrium Gallery of the Knight Law Center (1515 Agate St., 2nd floor, Eugene, OR 97403) from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. A public reception will take place on Friday, March 3, 2017 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. “Natural Landscapes of the American West” is an exhibit of 36 color photographs that capture beautiful penetrating views of natural scenic areas in Oregon, California, Utah, New Mexico, and Arizona. The exhibit showcases 36 film and digitally captured photographs. Most are printed using archival pigments while others are original darkroom prints. This is the first exhibition of these collected works by O’Brien. In describing the exhibit, O’Brien said, “Creative color work is difficult in that results are often too close to reality. The challenge is to include feeling about the scene that translates to an internal response in the viewer.” “Walt O’Brien’s enchanting scenes of the dramatic landscapes of the American West are tremendously evocative. We are excited to bring these stunning images of the West’s canyons, mountains, streams, lakes, and ocean views to Oregon Law while showcasing the talent of a local photographer,” said Dominick Vetri, professor emeritus and curator of art for the School of Law.
