An Exhibition of Photography by Forrest Zerbe
July 1 - August 27
Forrest Zerbe's Biography:
"The arts have always played a major role in my life. I grew up in a family that held education and culture in high esteem. As a youth, I spent a lot of my time working in the woodshop and darkroom. I loved these two places because they allowed me to be creative and work with my hands. My undergraduate years were spent studying a variety of subjects and discovering my passions. I finished my undergraduate degree with an emphasis in woodworking and decided to attend graduate school at Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) for furniture design.
"I never stopped doing photography, but it would take venturing back into the darkroom at SCAD for formal photography courses for me to decide that it would be my primary medium and focus moving forward. I devoted my time and energy to mastering the techniques of the art form and enjoyed being back in the darkroom. I earned my MFA in Photography from SCAD and spent the next six years traveling and working as a professional photographer. My bread and butter was portraiture, but I also did commercial product photography and website construction. I had the privilege of being a part of the photography industry during the early 2000s when technology revolutionized the art form. I began teaching at Colorado Mesa University in the Art & Design Department in 2013. Along with teaching, I still enjoy traveling and my days spent in the darkroom and studio."
