|Event Name:||Mary Kruckow Exhibit Opening Reception|
|Event Description:||Join us on Saturday, July 6 from 11 am to 3 pm for an opening reception with the artist. The "Mary Kruckow Exhibit" will be available at Jim Harrison Gallery through July 31.
Evans, Georgia based artist/photographer, Mary Kruckow, has been capturing wildlife with her cameras and translates her wildlife encounters on to canvas. Living near the Savannah River it is relativity easy to find wildlife along the river or in the backyard for reference. It takes many hours of waiting to get the perfect shot, going out into all kinds of weather conditions, sometimes stepping around snakes and waking up very early to photograph during the golden hours but it is so worth it.
Mary Kruckow is a graduate of Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, Georgia with a Bachelor of Arts. She started producing art or developed a talent for art while in High School. During the early years, she mainly produced portraits and found that getting the "likeness" of the subject was what helps tell a story and engages the viewer. This love of portraits carries over to the love of animal portraits too by showing the expression and capturing the essence of the wildlife in their habitat.
Mary works with many mediums such as oils, acrylics, graphite, pastels, cont? crayon, color pencils, and digital art. Having worked many years as a graphic designer/freelance artist creating art for others from logo design, web design, various print materials and commissions for portraits, she finds it nice to just paint the wildlife from her own photography. Her love of nature allows her to get up close to her subjects to capture that one shared moment with a quick shutter release but her understanding of animals allows her to have repeat photo sessions with many different subjects which seem to not mind her presence.
