July 8 - July 30FREE
The Gmeiner Art & Cultural Center is pleased to announce the Atrium exhibit for July, “An Eagle’s Eye View: Tioga County from Above” by local photographer Wade Spencer. The exhibit will feature aerial landscape photos printed on metal, which gives them a three-dimensional quality. This exhibit will open on Saturday, July 8th with a reception from 2-4PM. Wade and the Main Gallery artist, Jonathan Bond, will talk about their art work at 3PM. Light refreshments will be provided by members of Art’s Friends. The reception is free and open to the public.
A Tioga county native, Wade Spencer is a Wellsboro-based photographer and videographer who enjoys capturing creative content in our beautiful region. While studying communication at Mansfield University in 1997, Wade developed a parallel interest in photography, specifically creating landscape and nature scenes on 35mm slide film. He has eagerly embraced digital technology as it developed. Wade continued his photographic journey and today utilizes the modern capabilities of drones and action cameras as well as traditional cameras. Wade states, “I’ve always been captivated by both beautiful outdoor photography and flying. When it became possible to capture a literal birds eye view, I knew I needed to invest in the equipment, learn the regulations, and develop that skill. Top-down photos are an angle that is rarely seen, but show so much.” Outside of content creation, Wade enjoys hiking, biking, kayaking, and spending time in nature.
