I present these images to you to share my wonder at the beauty of the Southwest. I often had to shoot multiple photos to capture an entire vista; most of these final images are a digital compilation of numerous photographs. I have attempted to edit them only to generate the appearance of the scenery as my eyes perceived it. I digitally manipulated these images with a specific goal in mind; to remove the inadequacy of the camera to capture these magical expanses, majestic mountains, and jade-colored water of the beautiful, fragile, and sometimes terrible southwest.
SALVAGE was displayed at the SVAN Gallery in the Northville Library at 341 South 3rd Street in Northville, NY from July and August, 2019. The Sacandaga Valley Arts Network (SVAN) hosted the meet-the-artist reception on July 16 featuring Janene Bouck. Bouck's work has been featured at Saratoga Arts & recognized for award at the Arkell Museum, Canajoharie Library Stone Gallery & the Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts.
SALVAGE incorporated regional photography with salvaged material from the Adirondack, Sacandaga & Mohawk Valley Regions. It addressed the artist’s perception of Fulton County; the connections between environment, commerce, education, & social unity.
