Tim Lehman: Polar Regions Of Our Earth
Polar Regions Of Our Earth, a collection of photography by Tim Lehman, will be exhibited throughout the month of July in the Louise Gallery at Mulberry Art Studios. The public is invited to view the work and meet the artist at a First Friday Opening Reception from 5pm until 8pm on July 1st. Also a Sunday Reception on July 3 from 1-4. Regular gallery hours are held from 10am until 4pm on weekdays, evenings and weekends are available by appointment.
Tim Lehman was raised in northern New York State but is a resident of Portland, Oregon. He has long held a fascination for the polar regions of our earth and has traveled by expedition kayak in the waters of Lancaster Sound north of Baffin Island in Canada's High Arctic and by much more luxurious means, a tour ship, to the Antarctic continent. In this body of work, Tim brings to Mulberry Art Studios a surprising variety of images of lands rarely visited. He wishes to expose the viewer to a Canadian Arctic that is neither barren nor devoid of color and to an Antarctic continent that is surrounded by ice sculptures and the comedy of thousands of resident penguins.
Tim stubbornly continues to work with his film SLR camera. He is self-taught and has exhibited works at Camerawork Gallery and PICA Open Walls in Portland. Following the kayak expeditions to Canada's Baffin Island in 1998 and 2002, Tim offered dozens of presentations to kayaking, outdoor groups, and photographic clubs with groups ranging in size from 10 attendees to an audience of 1500 during a keynote presentation at the West Coast Sea Kayak Symposium in Port Townsend, WA. This photographer loves to share his memories, knowledge, and experiences about all things Arctic and Antarctic.
