Please join us for an opening reception of the exhibit "American Images" by photographer Don Moore on Friday, June 30 at 5pm.
The American Images exhibit will continue at the Williamsburg Art Gallery between June 30 and July 14, 2017.
Don Moore is best known for his crisp and colorful photo images of the structures and landscapes of Colonial Williamsburg.
A native of Minnesota, Don is a history and political science graduate of Luther College in Decorah, IA. He also holds advanced degrees from the University of Northern Iowa and James Madison University. After a career as a development officer at both James Madison in Harrisonburg, VA and Washington College in Chestertown, MD, Don joined the staff of the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation where he serves as a Principal Gift officer.
Don is a self-taught photographer who resides in the meticulously restored and preserved historic area of Colonial Williamsburg where he has had ample opportunity to capture a variety of unique seasonal views of the iconic village. Over the past seven years he has snapped, shuttered, edited, viewed, reviewed, and processed thousands of images. Indeed one of the delights of even a cursory visit to the restored village is discovering a treasury of views reflecting a design and style of quiet ambience that many find satisfying. In this exhibition Don’s photos reflect his view common segments of the rich heritage of early America design including structures, shutter dogs, brassware, gardens, and pathways. The images are everyday views of common things in early America which highlight an earlier formative period in the story of our nation.
Don’s photography also goes beyond preserved and conserved 18th Century Williamsburg. He invites you to see his 2016 Floral Look Book here in the gallery.
