CURRENT EXHIBITIONS Now Showing

"Into the Blue"

Mountlake Terrace LIBRARY Thomas Nunn

Photography Exhibit Opens June 1

Thomas Nunn has admired the black and white photographs of Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Weston, Imogen Cunningham and European photographers like Kertesz and Cartier-Bresson. “Although I print some color photos, I prefer the timelessness of black and white images which emphasizes composition and emotion without the distractions of color,” Nunn said.

Nunn’s photographs have been accepted in a number of juried art shows near Seattle and online at the Spider Awards (2nd Place, Abstract). In Arizona his images have had their widest distribution in three hiking books that he wrote for the Yuma area.

“I look to discover what is artistically striking or beautiful in a subject, what Weston called “well seen,” Nunn said.

The Mountlake Terrace Arts Advisory Commission oversees the library exhibits as part of its mission to promote cultural events in the community.  Each show is monthly at the Mountlake Terrace Library, Mondays through Thursdays, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sundays 1 to 5 p.m.
