Bluewood Gallery in Brevard, NC, Features Works by Sue Hershey

Bluewood Gallery in Brevard, NC, is presenting, Perspectives on Mountain Life, featuring works by photographer Sue Hershey of Brevard, on view through June 20, 2009. The exhibit will focus on Hershey's unique and eclectic perspectives of her adopted home here in Western North Carolina. 

"I believe that no matter what part of the country one lives in there is something visually unique about it. Those who live in Western North Carolina are particularly lucky to be in one of the most beautiful and interesting of areas. Yes, there are the vast mountain scapes and majestic waterfalls, but there are also the smaller details as well the cab of an abandoned farm truck, the texture in the slats of an old barn, a red tin roof meeting a barn side, the curve of a mountain lake dock, log steps on a trail. I enjoy photographing the parts of things and leave the rest to the viewer's imagination," says Hershey.

Hershey has been a photographer for over 30 years. Her work has been shown and has won awards at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, the Dallas Center for Contemporary Art, the One Show in Forth Worth and in fine art galleries in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex.

Since arriving in Brevard, Hershey has concentrated on establishing Bluewood Gallery, with co-owner Joan VanOrman. Bluewood Gallery is known for its specialization in fine art photography. Hershey has also built a portfolio of images that reflect her perspective of this unique part of the United States.

Bluewood Gallery will also present the exhibit, Images of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, on view from June 23 through July 31, 2009.
