Info

Nov. 22- Jan. 9, 2020. Please note Charter Oak will be closed December 21 through January 6 for the holidays. Microbotanicals will be on view Tuesday through Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and by special appointment. Scully states in his Artist Statement, "As a photographer my primary objective has been to find and reveal elements of nature that are both overlooked and close at hand, reinforcing the relevance of nature in our lives. I have found that even in today's fragmented natural landscape there are still small places for discovery. There are hidden microcosms all around us - by roadsides, in weedy cracks of pavement, and just below the reflections on waters' surfaces. As I seek out and probe into these areas of the natural world I find inspiration for my photographic work. While my intention has not been to focus exclusively on botanical subjects, I find myself continually surprised how the world of plants has influenced my art. Often I find that my curiosity to see something through my camera arises while pursuing interests unrelated to photography. Recently, while taking a basic course on botany, I found inspiration for my latest project involving botanical specimens photographed through a microscope. This new project feels like a natural evolution of my previous work with plants, taking me just beyond my visual boundaries to a place that is unknown, yet still somehow, familiar."
