Susan Scholey and Mark Howell “Not So Far Away” Open House and Reception

Susan Scholey and Mark Howell
“Not So Far Away”
Gallery 1855 is pleased to announce a special exhibition with photographers Susan Scholey and Mark Howell. The exhibition will run throughout the month of March. The opening reception will be held March 11th from 1-4:00 pm.
This exhibit features recent landscape and nature photographs by local artists Susan Scholey and Mark Howell. Almost all of the images are from California; hence the title, Not So Far Away. In addition, the title refers to Sue’s and Mark’s shared belief that the pleasures of art are always close at hand, an integral part of our humanity. The prints in this exhibit represent a persistent quest to go beyond the basic descriptive/documentary aspect of photography to produce pictures evocative of the profound influence of the natural world on the human psyche.
Sue Scholey is a physician who has lived in Davis since 1989. Over the past decade, her long-time interest in photography has evolved into a passion, abetted by workshops with Michael Frye, Charles Cramer, and Stephen Johnson, and by her friends and fellow members of Viewpoint Photographic Art Center. She has participated in many group exhibits, but this is her first exhibit of a larger body of work.
Mark Howell has been making photographs with serious intent for over 25 years. After many years making black-and-white darkroom prints, he has spent the last few years exploring the greater freedom of digital photography. This is his first exhibit of digitally-produced landscapes. Also an ardent Viewpoint member, he lives in a West Sac condo dominated by two cats and lots of other people’s photographs.
