‘Whiter-Morn’ exhibition at Bicentennial Art Center in Paris

PARIS, ILL. — The Bicentennial Art Center and Museum at 132 S. Central Ave., in Paris, will host a reception from 5 to 6:30 p.m. CST today to open its current exhibit, “Whiter-Morn,” featuring photography by R. John Ferguson of Terre Haute.

The reception is open to the public. The exhibit showcases black and white and color photography. Ferguson’s photographs will be on display through Dec. 30.

Ferguson’s variety of interests capture surreal echoes in the world. In his work are landscapes featuring divine moments of interplay between light, mist and natural forms, as well as majestic figural studies. Each 35mm film photograph is finely crafted with attention to lighting, clarity and cropping.

Ferguson allows the unexpected to influence the picture, as nature puts is fingerprint on his work in the forms of halos of light, craggy tree limbs, drifting snow and cloud formations.

“My photography is based on inspirations from the beauty that surrounds us,” he explains. “I want my art and my visions to be not only seen but experienced by the viewers of today and the viewers of tomorrow.”

Among his accomplishments in the last 10 years are many competition victories, awards and many photographs sold from New York to the West Coast.

But he considers his proudest achievement one that came at the Bicentennial Art Center where he garnered an award in his first competition from nationally known photographer, and Paris resident, Ed Gillum.

Ferguson continues to create and exhibit his photography. He lives and works in Terre Haute.

The Art Center is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. CST Tuesday through Friday or by appointment. For additional information, call the Art Center at (217) 466-8130.
