Robert Dorrill, a nature and landscape photographer, is the featured artist at P.A.St.A. Art Gallery during the month of August. Bob's exhibit, "Sites and Scenes of St. Augustine" will emphasize nature and landscapes. (SEE PICTURE ABOVE)
Some of nature's greatest gifts to mankind are the beautiful wading birds found in the St. Augustine area. During the mating season, hundreds of the Great Egrets, Ibis, Roseate Spoonbills, Wood Storks, and even the Great Blue Heron fly into the trees of the Alligator Farm nesting only a few feet from each other to mate and raise their babies. Some of these scenes will be included in the show along with beautiful sunrises which occur daily on St. Augustine beach.
Mr. Dorrill's interest in photography goes back to his younger days when he had a functioning darkroom as a hobby, but today he has evolved into the digital world of images. Retirement and the beautiful St. Augustine area has greatly contributed to his photographic experience.
You are invited to the opening reception August 5, 2011, from 5:00pm to 9:00pm during First Friday Art Walk in St. Augustine. Location is P.A.St.A. Gallery, 214 Charlotte St., regular gallery hours: 1-4 Mon-Fri. and 1-5 Sat-Sun. 904-824-0251
