Designs in Nature
“'Designs in Nature' are what often capture my attention," says art photographer Jeri Burzin of Visalia,California. She writes in to update us on her latest exhibits.
"My photograph of Vernal Falls is in a traveling exhibit with the Yosemite Renaissance organization. It started at the Yosemite Museum in February, and has traveled to Hanford CA, and is currently in Redwood City, CA. It will also be on display at the Business of Art Gallery in Manitou Springs, CO. My Jellyfish photo is now on exhibit with Digital Diversity, at the Artists’ Union Gallery in Ventura, CA.
The Three Graces photograph will be on display at the Tulare City Historical Museum, in Tulare, CA, until the end of the year.
A desire to bring back memories of a Caribbean sailing trip sparked Burzin's interest in photography a number of years ago. She began to enlarge and display her images. She subsequently attended photography workshops in Yosemite, the White Mountains, Sequoia National Park, and Pt. Reyes.
“Literacy through Photography” workshops at the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University taught Burzin how to use photography as a medium of communication that is exciting to children, and influenced her work as an educational therapist.
In addition to her current exhibits, Burzin's work has been shown at Arts Visalia, First Arts Market, the Tulare County Historical Museum, the Visalia Convention Center, the Brandon-Mitchell Gallery, Café 225, Gallery 25, the Visalia Art Studio Tour, the Tulare County Fair, and the Yosemite Museum. "My images are an attempt to share experiences which I hope you enjoy," the artist says.
