Montgomery College Art Professor to Show Recent Works at Visions Exhibition Space
Harry St. Ours’ Photographs on Display January 28-April 22; Artist’s Reception, Feb. 27
Montgomery College professor and artist, Harry St. Ours, is showing an exhibit of his recent works called “Details, An Exhibition of Photographs,” at the Visions Exhibition Space from January 28-April 22. An artist reception will be held February 27 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.
Visions Exhibition Space is located at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel and Conference Center, 5701 Marinelli Road, North Bethesda, Md. This exhibit space is dedicated to exhibiting the works of professional Montgomery County artists and is supported by the Public Arts Trust of the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County.
A sculptor by training, Harry St. Ours is currently professor in the Communication Arts Technologies Department at Montgomery College’s Rockville Campus and was named an Apple Distinguished Educator in 2007. He teaches digital art and design at the College.
“Whether attempting in my photographs to capture the sweeping details of a city by examining its skyline or by revealing the joy in the smallest of elements in nature, I am constantly surprised and delighted by the sheer strength and beauty of natural design as it emerges through the creative process,” said St. Ours, a professor for over three decades.
His exhibit at Visions investigates the formal aspects of everyday forms. From an oil slick to a giant palm frond, fascination with form, line, and color is evident in his selection of photographs.
