Two local artists’ photography on display at Trinity Lutheran Church

By: Anita Jonason

For the month of August through the Labor Day weekend, the photographs of Anita Jonason and Jim Sinclair are being exhibited at Trinity Lutheran Church in Detroit Lakes.

The exhibit is open for viewing every Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, and on Sundays from 8 to 11:30 a.m. The church is located at at 1401 Madison Ave.

Sinclair’s exhibit, “Noticing Beauty Every Day,” is a collection of images he has gathered since he took up photography about five years ago. He has always loved the outdoors, and his excellent photography shows this love.

In his Artist’s Statement, Jim says, “I find that I am noticing more beauty every day… I spend countless hours on Tamarac Wildlife Refuge, and many of the creatures I photograph can be seen there.”

Jonason whimsically named her exhibit, “Out & About with an iPhone 4.” Like many people today, Jonason views taking pictures with her phone is a wonderful thing.

The quality is quite good, but most importantly, folks can share beauty, wonder and fun with friends.

Like Jim, her remarkable photographs show us the everyday beauty of the world around us.

Engaging yourself, by looking at the excellent photographs of these two artists, you do gain a greater appreciation forlife today, in the “now,” she says.
