Fine art photographer Steven Wells will exhibit his dramatic new photographs in the new Ethel M. Weymouth Art Gallery July-August. The work will be on view during regular library hours through the end of August. Wells specializes in creating stunning black-and-white and color landscape and seascape images of New England.
“I enjoy the ability of mixing photography and computer technology to create beautiful images to share with people,” said Wells, a retired computer industry executive who lives in Wells. “When I am out shooting, I am drawn to images that show depth, variations in light, texture, contrast and color,” said Wells. “I am particularly drawn to capturing images of New England coastal scenes and Vermont countryside settings.” He has been a photographer most of his life, beginning in elementary school when he shot movies on an 8-mm camera.
Later on, he created cibachrome and black-and-white prints. He also shot and developed color slides. Today, he uses Pentax digital cameras with a variety of lenses to capture his images. Wells does all of his own printing and framing. Wells loves taking photos and capturing the beauty of New England. “I want to share this beauty with everyone,” he said. “To me, the framed print is the ultimate photographic statement, not images viewed on the screen from the internet. A printed image is something you can see, touch and get close to. It can be shared and appreciated by many for generations to come.”

The Ethel M. Weymouth Art Gallery was established in January 2003 by the Friends of the Wells Public Library and Stephen Bahre. Mr. Bahre was Library Director from 2000 to 2003 when he passed away. The Gallery, located near the front of the library, provides exhibit space to local artists. The Gallery is open year round during Library hours. Opening receptions are held for each show usually on the first Saturday of the month from 11:00- 12:30.
