Friday, October 6: Missoula-based photographer Antonia Wolf shares her work. 5pm.
"I explore creation in all its forms: human life, the natural world, the animal world. I am drawn to vivid, vital colors and textures; the essences of places are what move me. With my camera I strive to capture flashes of beauty wherever I happen to find myself, at home or abroad. I have been asked why I concentrate so much on beauty when there are so many despairing images to convey. My answer is simple. It is the mystery I am always tracking with my lens: beauty can be found even in the most agonizing, tragic places. Each of my photos tries to speak a particular story, held in time. Each of my photos—even the most otherworldly landscapes—tries to unearth a humanity that could easily have been overlooked. My work unfolds out of attention, precision, and love. All of my art is an expression of my love for the world." -- Antonia Wolf
