Dennis DeHart art opening at Christina’s

Orcas Island photographer Dennis DeHart will be exhibiting his fine art photography at Christina’s. The show includes new work from the series “Land of the Stratus.”

An opening reception will be held on Thursday, Aug. 6 from 5 to 7 p.m. Wine and appetizers will be served.

DeHart has exhibited extensively and was recently asked to participate in the 2009 Lishui Photo Festival in Lishui, China. DeHart is also an accomplished photographic educator and has served as a professor of photography with Indiana University and SUNY Buffalo. He currently teaches classes through the Photographic Center Northwest in Seattle.

DeHart’s recent photographs include large format panoramic images that Diane Edkins, a curator at the

Aperture gallery in New York describe as “a classical approach to the western landscape and space, which is both dissident and disturbing while functioning aesthetically and provocatively.” DeHart will also be showing a selection of color prints that he created in the attic of his apartment while living in Buffalo, NY.

A Northwest native, DeHart and his family returned to the Northwest last year from New York. Dennis and his wife Jesica are currently involved in building a house on the island. They also own and operate

Stratus Studio, a photographic business based on the Orcas. To learn more about DeHart’s photography visit
