Foto Forest: Photographic Selections by Bernheim Artists in Residence


JIMMY FIKE Mock Strawberry


The Louisville Photo Biennial may officially be over, but there are still some great LPB exhibits up in and around town.  You can see my work in LVA’s Louisville Photo Biennial exhibit Altered Perceptions at Mayor Greg Fischer’s gallery at Metro Hall until January 18th, 2018.

You can also take a trip down 1-65 south to beautiful Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest and see the photo biennial show I’m not only featured in, but one I also curated in my new role as Bernheim’s Visual Art Coordinator!

FOTO FOREST: Photographic Selections by Bernheim Artists in Residence is on view at the Education Center until December 29th so you still have lots of time to see this exhibit and get a hike in before the new year!

For more than three decades, the Artist in Residence program has attracted artists from around the world who seek to use Bernheim as their inspiration and to explore ideas that reinforce Bernheim’s mission of connecting people with nature.

Photography as an artistic medium has a long-standing history in the Artist in Residence program at Bernheim.  But as the photographic medium has changed over the years, so has artistic interpretation of the landscape changed with photography.  FOTO FOREST is an exhibition that celebrates unique and diverse interpretations of the Bernheim landscape.
