Please join us in welcoming award-winning Edith Wood at her opening reception on Sunday, Feb. 12, 2017 from 3-5 p.m. for “Just Birds.” The SOBA gallery showing will start on February 6 and end on March 5. Also at the gallery is the monthly change of show displaying new work admitted from over 100 SOBA member artists. The opening reception includes refreshments and a chance to meet Edith Wood.
Edith Wood is SOBA Gallery’s “Featured Artist of the Month.” Edith works patiently for the precise moment to capture the birds while they are at their best in the wild. To do this a photographer must be practiced in the art of snapping the camera while the bird is in an artists’ composition, and also is in natural light and showing the characteristics of each species of bird.
Edith Wood studies nature, as she waits for the best moment to capture nature in all of its best display. Her love of the outdoors and the use of the natural light and artistic composition result in perfect moments captured in time.
Edith began her exploration of photography taking portraits for her family which she still enjoys today. She started with a DSLR camera in 2008 and has since discovered wildlife, landscape and Macro Photography. She’s learned from her many photographer friends, from research on the web, and from joining photography groups. However, she points out, “I’ve learned the most from my own mistakes and lots of practice.”
The SOBA gallery is open from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Saturday and Sunday from 11:30 a.m.-3 p.m. and is located at the corner of Church and Calhoun streets in Bluffton.
