By Sue StaffordWith their cameras, skilled photographers are able to capture moments in time that will never again be seen exactly the same way. In the May Friends of the Sisters Library art exhibit, members of the Sisters Photography Club are showcasing their own unique moments in time with familiar and foreign landscapes, rodeo action shots, wildlife, animals, and birds, and people caught being themselves.
Three Sisters residents - Brent MacGregor, Tom Davis, and Conrad Weiler - founded the club more than a decade ago. The club's membership now runs around 30 to 35. This is the 11th year the club has displayed at the library. Davis and Weiler both have entries in this year's exhibit.
Adult photographers of all ages, abilities, and interests are welcome at the club's monthly meetings on the second Wednesday at 4 p.m. in the library community room, where members share their work and techniques. The more experienced members are always willing to help a novice photographer improve their skills.
Each of Linda Ziegenhagen's photographs is unique due to frames she makes from reclaimed barn-board, rusty barbed wire, and common household items like trays. One of her photos hanging in the community room is an example of her "recycled frames." The photograph of Drake Park is printed on canvas that is wrapped around the sides and framed with her hallmark wood and wire.
Wendy Birnbaum's "Meeting in the Dust" is one in a series of three original sepia photos printed on metal. "Hummer's Repose" by Lexie Bakewell is a stunning shot of a hummingbird at rest, a sight seldom seen.
Most photographs in the exhibit are for sale. If interested in purchasing one, fill out the form on the entry table in the library community room and put it in the box located there. The artist will make contact and the photo will be available when the show ends
The club's website is located at www.sistersphotoclub.smugmug.com.
