Photography by Steve Eagle
August 6 - September 1, 2014
Above Image: DAR State Forest, Goshen MA. 14”x21”
Steve Eagle has a focus on portraying the best of any given scene. With a background in short animated films, Eagle’s experience includes combining single frames into a continuous moving image. Now focusing his attention on photography, he still incorporates the spirit of animation by compositing several photographs together to produce a single, “ideal” image.
Spending time in the city during the week, Eagle retreats to the Amherst area on weekends and finds much of his inspiration in the countryside of Western Mass. In good weather he goes out with his camera to explore the places where land and water meet, visiting locations like Puffers Pond, Fort River and the Connecticut River. He finds the patterns and reflections of the surface of water to be compelling. When selecting the subject matter for his photographs, Eagle considers the sky, the horizon, the ground, and the feeling of the water.
After choosing a subject, he then takes hundreds of separate photographs - each from a slightly different angle. The images are then blended together, similar to the frames of an animated film. This process allows Eagle to control and adjust the composition, colors, textures and level of details of the final image to create something at once immediately recognizable, yet uniquely special.

“I Heard the Shadows Calling”
Mixed Media Assemblage by Nan Salky
September 3 through September 29, 2014
Nan Salky’s most recent work presents a mixture of drawing and mixed media assemblage that takes us on a journey into a realm of dream and mystery. Images that embody a sense of quiet order, of flight and liberation, appear alongside those of darkness and disintegration. The rich sweetness of childhood is captured and then torn asunder, bringing us fully into the experience of the fragility of life. What lay hidden is exposed, and what was feared is brought to light and loses its grip.
Nan Salky was born in 1956 in Memphis TN, She received her BA in Writing and Illustrating Children’s Books from The University of Colorado, Boulder, and an MA in Counseling Psychology from Antioch New England. She has worked for thirty years as a psychotherapist and has reared two daughters. She lives in Amherst, Massachusetts with her husband, Tom Murphy, her co-conspirator in artistic endeavors.
