Gallery North announces opening of digital art show
Gallery North announces the opening of “Infinite Realities," a solo show by digital artist Anne Harlan Prather.
Born blind, Prather began her serious artistic pursuit in an attempt to learn to see.
“When you're born blind," she said, "you have to learn to recognize the world without touching it."
Her early efforts were realistic studies of natural forms, such as plants, shells and flowers. She photographed tiny seeds with a microscope, and these photographs became part of her doctoral research.
After graduating from the University of Washington in 2009, she began expanding her work to include fractals, transformed photographs and fractal compositions.
She has exhibited her work at science fiction art shows throughout the country, and joined Gallery North in September 2013.
Her note cards are sold in several locations including Truly Treasures in Denver, Colo.
Prather holds a music performance degree from Wheaton College and a doctorate in botany from the University of Washington, where she did her first solo show in 2005.
The opening reception for “Infinite Realities" will be held from 1-4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 6, at Gallery North, 401 Main St.
