Kirk Anderson’s Rivers Discovered exhibit opens in The Community Library lecture room starting January 4, 2017, as part of the “Art in the Lecture Room” series. The Library will host an opening reception with the photographer on Tuesday, January 10, from 5 to 7 p.m.
This exhibit of sweeping landscape photography highlights our own neighborhood, known for its rich natural heritage. Kirk Anderson’s Rivers Discovered exposes the vastness and natural majesty of Idaho waterways, from the Snake River to Silver Creek, from Swan Valley to the Tetons.
In his photography, Anderson shows a deep understanding of light, texture and composition, while crafting a stunning integration of landscape, light, and color.
“Having lived in the Rocky Mountains most of my life, I am constantly observing the many moods of this dramatic landscape. As my travels take me on a path of world discovery, I am forever grateful for my fortunate beginning. The inspiration for my work is found in the elements of nature,” said Anderson.
Kirk studied photography with Howard Huff, Director of the Boise State University Art Department, and then later refined his skills at the Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California. After Brooks, Kirk further fine-tuned his art by assisting other photographers on assignment. He lives in Ketchum with his wife and three sons.
The exhibit is part of the Library’s ongoing effort to showcase local artists and local art collections in the Lecture Hall.
“This exhibit elicits a sense of wonder for the West’s landscape and the impressive rivers that define it,” said Jenny Emery Davidson, the Library’s executive director. “We invite people to spend time with the photographs, then check out The Emerald Mile or Cadillac Desert or The Snake River: A Window to the West to learn more about these vital waterways.”
