Artist reception on Second Saturday, April 11
RiverWinds Gallery at 172 Main St. in Beacon presents Birds in Flight: Photographs by David Wong, their April featured artist. The show opens on Beacon Second Saturday, April 11, with an artist reception from 5 to 8 p.m. The show runs through May 3.
Wong’s photographs range from birds in flight to still reflections to calming landscapes. He has been photographing since he was a teenager, but his career went from managing a mid-size gift manufacturing company to working as a corporate video producer.
In 2006 he studied with Ted Orland, one of Ansel Adams’s assistants, and it was in his class that he shot his award-winning, iconic photograph, Night Sentinel.
Many of his early professional photos were of sports venues that included racecar events and dog agility trials. Landscape and nature photography became his passion, however, and is now his full-time photographic pursuit.
David lives in the Sierra Foothills of California, and his work is exhibited in West Coast galleries. He has strong ties to the Hudson Valley and has taught photography at the Mill Street Loft’s Summer Intensive art program at Vassar College.
RiverWinds Gallery is open Wednesday through Monday from noon to 6 p.m. and on Second Saturdays from noon to 9 p.m. For more information, visit riverwindsgallery.com or call 845-838-2880.
