The library is hosting a photography exhibit by local artist Richard Kale that will be on display through the end of September.
Richard has recently concentrated on the exploration of light, form and shape, and the use of the camera as a conceptual tool. These images of pencils illustrate the study of these ideas.
There are objects that are so well designed, that modern technology hasn’t been able to improve on them. We often take these objects for granted. Their simplicity and function are remarkably welcome to the camera and photography. The humble pencil is one of them.
