Artist - Leon Gin

SugarWood Gallery has as their “Artist of the Month” Leon Gin of Industry.  An Open House Reception to introduce his work will be held Friday, April 4 from 4:00 – 7:00 PM, and on Saturday, April 5 from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM. The public is invited. Refreshments will be served.

Leon has been making photographs for over 25 years. He particularly enjoys nature and travel photography. He is an avid birder and birds are of course some of his favorite subjects.  He travels a lot and has photographed subjects as varied as the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Song and Dance Festival in Latvia, monkeys in Malaysia and Northern Gannets in Quebec just to name a few. He feels fortunate to live in the state of Maine. He loves photographing the Maine coast as well as the mountains.

Many of his compositions of birds and animals are portraits.  He tries to give the viewers a chance to see the subject in a way that they have perhaps not seen it before.

Beyond portraits he enjoys finding compositions that include, patterns, lines, colors, motion, blur and beautiful light.  Picking out a composition for a photograph out of the wide scene that one sees with the eye is the ultimate challenge.

You can see some more of his photographs at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/leonginphotography or look for Leon Gin Photography on Facebook.

Work will be on display throughout the month of April for the public to view and purchase.

SugarWood Gallery is located at 248 Broadway in Farmington and is open Monday thru Friday 10 AM to 5:30 PM, and Saturday from 10 AM to 4 PM.
