in Arts and Entertainment/Newport/News

NEWPORT — The MAC Center for the Arts will be showing a new exhibit in the Downstairs Connection entitled “Owls Talking to You,” by renowned award-winning nature photographer, Elinor Osborn.

The opening is Friday, November 8, 5-7 p.m.

Osborn’s stunning work will also include a 30-minute talk, Owl Vocalizations, and a Q&A.

This is free event and open to the public.

In her own words, “Photography enables me to see details of nature which remain hidden from casual observation. There are so many exciting aspects of plants, animals, weather phenomena etc. to find and learn about, that I enjoy being outdoors more than anything else, especially here in Vermont….My photography includes a variety of outdoor subjects, including natural history, scenics and outdoor sports—cross country skiing and sled dogs.”

Using a digital camera and computer, she enjoys creating both traditional photo prints and creative “Art Image” prints.

All are giclée prints that she brings to life on glossy, fine art or metallic papers.

She was the 2009 winner in Nature’s Best Photography Backyards Contest sponsored by Nature’s Best, the most prestigious nature photography magazine in the U.S. Magazines, such as Vermont Life, Click, Cross Country Skier, Stowe Guide, Northern Woodlands, Vermont Sports, Vermont magazine, VT Sports and many books have published my photos.

Watersheds United Vermont just used her river photo for a cover for Living in Harmony with Streams.

Project UltraSwan, (a children’s book published by Houghton Mifflin), which she wrote and photographed, tells the story of the trumpeter swan migration project following ultralight aircraft.

Her pictures have been published in a plethora of books including Second Atlas of Breeding Birds of Vermont, Peterson-Hummingbirds of North America, Ortho-All About Attracting Hummingbirds and Butterflies, Weisel-Cross Country Ski Vacations, The Nature Conservancy National and many more.

Come meet this fascinating world-class photographer at the MAC Center for the Arts, 158 Main Street, Newport, November 8th.

The exhibit runs through December 7th.
