Photographers are careful observers by inclination and training. Linda and Robert Scarth came from academic backgrounds where their observational skills were honed. Their interest and skill developed early and evolved to emphasize photographing the natural world. Largely self-taught, they have taken classes at universities where they worked, along with the Kansas City Art Institute and the Armidale College of TAFE in Australia, where they once lived.
This exhibition displays a wide variety of the subjects the Scarths have photographed over the years: flowers, insects, birds and other animals--all demonstrating the Scarths' fascination with the beauty, fragility and resilience of the natural world. Cost is $7 for adults; $6 for seniors (62+); $6 for college (free for local college w/ID); $3 for kids 6-18 and free for Members and kids under 6 years old. There will be a free reception the evening of February 1st for new exhibitions.
(Sadly, shortly after finalizing the selection of works for this exhibition, Linda Scarth passed away on July 3, 2017.)
