The SOBA Featured Art Exhibit Will Run June 5-July 2
with an opening reception from 5-7 p.m. June 7
Savannah Kemper’s upcoming photography exhibit captures the unique colors and textures from her travels. “Colors of the World” will exhibit from June 5-July 2 at The Society of Bluffton Artists gallery in Old Town Bluffton. An opening reception will take place from 5-7 p.m. June 7 at the gallery. These events are free and open to the public.
Kemper is a self-described opportunistic photographer who does not seek out her subjects, but instead scenes that stand out to her. She credits her photography style to her family’s travels early in her life and their encouragement to see beauty in the world. Many of the photos from her exhibit reflect her unique take on nature scenes as well as interesting architecture in bustling cities.
“Since my father grew up on a ranch in Texas, he was very in tune with nature and I think he definitely instilled that love and appreciation for the outdoors in me,” Kemper said. “I grew up being taught how significant the world outside our homes was and that’s why I find my work more often reflecting my travels rather than where I live because whenever I travel somewhere I’m always trying to take in all the details.”
Kemper exclusively prints on aluminum and acrylic which maintain clarity and sharpness to show the fine details of her work. While she likes the modern feel that aluminum and acrylic affords, she doesn’t use photo editing software to overly edit her work as we often see today. She only edits to reflect what her eye saw through the camera lens.
Kemper is in her final year at Clemson University, majoring in international business and Italian. She heads to Florence for a study abroad in the spring which will be more opportunity for for discovering treasured photos. She has been exhibiting her photography at The SOBA gallery for 3 years and won first place in the photography category of SOBA’s 28th Annual Judged Show.
