A photographic exhibition by commercial and environmental photographer Eric Horan entitled, “Beholding Nature” will be featured at the Beaufort Art Association (BAA) from Sunday, Feb. 26, through Sunday, April 30.
An opening reception will be held from 5-7:30 p.m. Friday, March 3, at the gallery at 913 Bay St. There will also be on exhibit the work of 65 other local artists, who are members of the gallery. The public is invited.
Horan, a graduate of Colorado Mountain College with a degree in commercial art and photography, took his first job documenting wildlife for the Colorado Fish, Game & Parks Department. This opened the door to a life-long study of photography and nature.
His freelance work has appeared in Business Week, Southern Living, New York Times Sunday Travel, and many others, including the cover of Smithsonian. Book publishers include Fodor’s, National Geographic Books, and his own, “Carolina Nature.”
Horan’s nature photography is recognized throughout the Carolinas and Georgia in part by his wildlife portraits, sky, land and water scenes showcased in Lowcountry Calendar, which was published annually from 2001 to 2012. The calendar won national calendar awards each of the last eight years in print.
