Event Description

Framing the World: The Photography of Linda & Robert Scarth

January 13 – April 29, 2018

Photographers are careful observers by inclination and training. Linda and Robert Scarth come from academic backgrounds where their observational skills were honed. Their interest and skill developed early and evolved to emphasize photographing the natural world. Largely self-taught, they have taken classes at universities where they worked, along with the Kansas City Art Institute and the Armidale College of TAFE in Australia where they once lived.

This exhibition displays a wide variety of the subjects the Scarths have photographed over the years: flowers, insects, birds, and other animals, all demonstrating the Scarth’s fascination with the beauty, fragility, and resilience of the natural world. 

(Sadly, shortly after finalizing the selection of works for this exhibition, Linda Scarth passed away on July 3, 2017.)
