Photo exhibit on display at CFAC
The current exhibit at the Community Fine Arts Center is the dramatic photography of Utah artist Brett Mosley. A closing reception for the public will be Oct. 4 from 2 -4 p.m.
Born 1963 in Ogden, Utah, Mosley’s interest in photography was introduced to him by his father who occasionally dabbled in the art form during Mosley’s youth. Mosley inherited his father’s camera equipment after his passing in 1989.
Mosley’s true awakening and growth in the world of photography started after his father-in-law showed him how to use his equipment to its potential, including the basic rules of composition. Between 1989 and 1999 Mosley enjoyed processing and printing his own film in his basement darkroom and captured his art in mostly black and white.
Mosley took a seven-year hiatus from photography until 2006 when he rejuvenated his love of photography after purchasing his first digital camera. Soon after that he even sold his beloved Jeep Wrangler to fund an upgrade to an even newer and more advanced camera.
One of Mosley’s favorite things to capture is wildlife but he is best and takes the most pride in his HDR (high dynamic range) landscapes. It is most common to see his landscapes with a curious old building or barn with lots of character. He also likes to spotlight some form of water such as the Great Salt Lake or relaxing creek. Mosley has never had any formal training and enjoys his love for photography as a hobby in his spare time.
This exhibit will be on display through Oct. 4. Visitors to the CFAC are invited to see this featured artist’s work as well as the permanent collection owned by the Sweetwater County School District No. 1. The CFAC is a department of the Sweetwater County Library System in cooperation with City of Rock Springs and Sweetwater School District No. 1.
