LIVINGSTON MANOR, NY — Morgan Outdoors will host a photography exhibit by local photographer LaVerne Black title “Manescapes” from June 3 to July 8, with an opening artist’s reception on June 3 from 2 to 4 p.m.
The black and white photographs in Manescapes portray horses’ manes. By eliminating extraneous elements from the frame, parts become a complete image.
“I begin to see cascading water falls, a storm brewing behind a mountains’ edge, a sun dappled hillside, rippling ocean waves, the texture of sand and surf, sedge grass undulating in the wind: an infinite variety of parts contributing to the whole,” said Black.
Black was born on a small family farm in Sullivan County, and has exhibited her photographs widely throughout the Catskills. Her photographs have been published in local and regional media, many of which have graced the covers and calendars of Kaatskill Life Magazine. “I hold dear the rural landscape and country lifestyle that remains a large part of my life,” she said.
The photographs exhibited will be on sale. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday.
