BVS Spring Art Show: Meet the artists
BVS Cultural Arts Presents
Introducing BVSCAA art donor Robert Hardy
"Having worked for forty years as a professional photographer, with most of them devoted to advertising photography, I went into fine art landscape photography a few years ago upon my retirement. I have found both professions to be equally challenging and rewarding experiences.
Advertising placed time constraints and special requirements to fulfill the assignments, while fine art landscapes required nature's cooperation and travelling long distances to remote locations. When nature does not cooperate, I must go back again and again to achieve the desired result...which is to stimulate the visual senses of my viewers. Both occupations require great discipline and dedication. Without those qualities, I would never have been successful in accomplishing my goals."
Donated art: Photograph on metal "The Bee-Kay Theater" is available for viewing at Gallery and Gifts.
