Photographer Brian Parmeter to Exhibit at Reflection Gallery August 28 to September 23

August 26, 2009

Brian ParmeterHANCOCK, MI - The Finlandia University Reflection Gallery will host an exhibit of photography by artist Brian Parmeter from August 28 to September 23, 2009.

An opening reception and artist talk will take place Thursday, September 3, 1:00 to 2:00 p.m., at the Reflection Gallery. The reception is open to the public and all are welcome. The Reflection Gallery is located on the 2nd level of Finlandia's Jutila Center campus. Refreshments will be served.

Parmeter PhotoBrian Parmeter has 26 years experience in fine-art landscape photography, and professional experience in all formats of digital and film capture and location/studio lighting. He has worked extensively with corporate and higher education clients.

Parmeter received a bachelor of science in mass communications at St. Cloud (Minn.) State University. He studied digital media at St. Paul (Minn.) Technical College, and color photography printing (traditional silver-based technology) at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. He also attended Michigan Technological University, where he currently instructs photography courses.

Parmeter's connection with landscapes is that of respect, wonder, and amazement. While wandering to find a good shot, he says he feels as if he is "trespassing" in a majestic land, and his footprints taint the natural surrounding beauty - a beauty which he captures in both color or black and white.

Parmeter PhotoMost amazingly, Parmeter says, capturing nature in a shot is like capturing a glimpse of eternity, something "never to be seen again, but to be repeated forever."
