Jay McDonald, Award Winning Photographer, Exhibits Botanicals: Up Close and Personal

October 1st, 2017 - October 31st, 2017

McDonald says about his work, “The artist and plant both depend on light for existence. By uniquely capturing the light, color, and gesture of these familiar subjects, I strived to evoke a new appreciation of these familiar botanical objects.

All of the subjects save the lettuce bowl and the ferns come from my garden in Fayetteville or on my rural land in Newton County. While most of these photographs emote life, beauty, and vibrancy, the image of decaying wood courtesy of fungus and lichen reveals the final stage of all plants quietly returning to the soil in order to provide for the infinite possibilities of its next cycle of life.”
