Explore the color and texture of nature through “Hidden Wonders,” an exhibit of digital photography by Brick artist Annmarie Holler. The exhibit is currently on display through Nov. 3 in the M. Christina Geis Art Gallery on the campus of Georgian Court University, Lakewood.
Holler is able to capture and explore colorful and texturized pieces of nature through means of art and photography. Her exhibit at GCU features detailed and vibrant digital photography of nature, including close-ups of lily pads and leaves.
“This exhibit is about the art that naturally surrounds us,” said Holler, who is also a lecturer in art at GCU. “As artists, we are always looking for inspiration from the world. My inspiration comes from nature. I’ve always been interested in the colors, shapes and textures that are naturally created around us. most people walk around never noticing what is around them. In this exhibit, I want people to stop and see these hidden treasures around them.”
Holler holds a bachelor of arts degree in art education and a master of fine arts degree in painting/interdisciplinary from Marywood University, Scranton, Pa.
“Annmarie Holler’s current exhibition highlights her recent work using digital imagery to explore the natural world,” said Leo Morriseey, GCU associate professor of art and chair of the Department of Art and Visual Studies. “The images transcend mere photographs of nature; she accomplishes this through her sophisticated approach to the use of composition and color.
“Ms. Holler has a self-assured command of her media and her strong body of work indicates this,” Morrissey said.
