RPS Monthly Program Meeting with Speaker Kathryn Kolb

Composition and the Dynamic Symmetry of Art & Nature

Where: ARC (Adult Recreation Center)
When: Tuesday, September 2, 2014, 7:00pm-8:30pm

For the last 20 years, Kathryn Kolb has focused her energy on fine art photography of natural forms and landscapes, as well as educating about the rich, diverse ecosystems of the Southeast and environmental stewardship. Her fine art photographs are found in significant public and private collections as well as national and international venues.

In addition to being a fine art photographer, Kathryn is a Master Naturalist and is new Director of EcoAddendum, leading naturalist walks, giving educational talks and workshops in photography and in understanding native ecosystems in both urban greenspaces and regional wildlands.

Kathryn is known for a meticulous compositional style in her photograph and is engaged in exploring and articulating the relationships between fine art and natural forms and the geometries and science they have in common.
