Photography by Edith Wood
“ARTIST OF THE MONTH”
The SOBA Gallery is happy to once again host as our “Featured Artist of the Month”, Edith Wood. Her new show is called, “Just Birds”. Edith has been hard at work waiting for the precise moment to capture these birds, while at their best in the wild. To do this a photographer has to be patient and practiced in the art of snapping the camera while the bird is in an artists’ composition, and also is in natural light and showing its characheristics of the species of the bird.
Edith began her exploration of photography taking portraits for her family which she still enjoys today. She started with a DSLR camera in 2008 and has since discovered wildlife, landscape and Macro Photography. She’s learned from her many photographer friends, from research on the web, and from joining photography groups. However, she points out, “I’ve learned the most from my own mistakes and lots of practice.”
Edith’s numerous awards include Peoples’ Choice award at K. Hovnanian Homes community in Hampton Lake in the year 2015, also the SOBA member Judged Show 1st Place 2015, 2nd Place 2016, the Camera Club Awards and Nine photos chosen for the Memory Matters Book, “Meet Me Where I am”.
Originally from a small French town in Ontario, she nows calls Bluffton, South Carolina “home”.
Please join us in welcoming award winning Edith Wood at her opening reception Sunday, February 12th 3 – 5 pm. The gallery showing will start on February 6th and end on March 5th.
The SOBA gallery is open from 10 until 5 pm Monday – Saturday and Sunday from 11:30 am – 3 pm and is located at the corner of Church and Calhoun Streets in Bluffton.
