Photography Exhibit at the Eagle Point Library
Bobbi Murphy, a local artist who lives along the Upper Rogue River near the Table Rocks, has an exciting exhibit of her abstract and representational photography in the Eagle Point Branch Library, 239 West Main Street. The exhibit can be seen during library hours through the month of July.
The Eagle Point Friends of the Library will host a reception for the photographer on Saturday, May 18 from 2 – 4 p.m. in the community room of the library.
Included in the exhibit are ten landscape images that she has taken on her travels through Southern Oregon, Alaska, and the Palouse region of Washington as well as portraits of Native Americans.
Ms. Murphy uses the camera as a tool to explore the world around her. The camera challenges her to isolate and distill scenes into simple, powerful images that communicate the essence of what she sees. Through her photographs she catches light, color, and shape to find the “hidden” picture in a scene.
She perfected her photography skills by attending the Rocky Mountain School of Photography and currently exhibits at the Photographers’ Gallery at the Ashland Center.
