Pinckneyville Park Community Recreation Center will sponsor an exhibit of photography by Ken Easter entitled “The Nature of Things.” The event will be featured at the Pinckneyville Park Community Recreation Center from Jan. 29 - April 24. An opening reception will be held on Feb. 6, from 7 - 9 p.m. Exhibit hours are 9 a.m. - 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. on Saturday and 12 - 5 p.m. on Sunday. Admission is free.
Completely self taught through books and trial and error, Easter purchased his first 35mm camera in 1963 while serving in the U.S. Army. His travel throughout the U.S. has allowed him to collect numerous photographs, expanding his hobby from people and places to landscape and nature. He continued the use of the 35mm format until 2004 when he made the change to digital.
Easter’s goal as a nature photographer is to give tangible evidence that serenity is available to those who take the time to seek it. He does this by capturing moments in time with his photographs, moments that can easily go unnoticed. This gives others the opportunity to enjoy what may have been overlooked due to the schedules of daily living, and allows people to visit places through his photographs that they may not have had the opportunity to visit for themselves.
Pinckneyville Park Community Recreation Center is located at 4650 Peachtree Industrial Blvd. in Norcross. For more information call 770-417-2200 or visit www.gwinnettparks.com.
