Where:
Boyce Thompson Institute
BTI Atrium (Main Entrance)
Categories:

On display through March 2018 at the Boyce Thompson Institute (BTI)

The photography showcased as part of Art@BTI covers a wide range of approaches to floral and abstract photography, including digital montages, natural settings, and staged macrophotography.

Nancy V. Ridenour’s photo montages exhibit an overall sense of tranquility and compositional foresight. She emphasizes the beauty and diversity in both architectural and botanic subjects.

Through the juxtaposition of light and texture devoid of physical context, Ridenour urges viewers to reorient themselves, to grasp the possibility in the work, and ultimately attain serenity and a deep sense of pleasure in her subjects.

Many of the floral photographs featured in the exhibit were taken in Nancy’s personal gardens and ponds. Additional subjects include cement sculptures found in the Cornell Botanic Gardens’ Arboretum.

The exhibit is available for viewing during normal business hours and is free and open to the public. BTI will also host a special reception in March 2018, where guests will be able to meet with Nancy and learn more about her work.

About Nancy V. Ridenour: Nancy spent her youth in Schenectady, NY, surrounded by a large family involved in the florist business. Flowers and gardens were central to those years, which led to a major in biology while at Cornell University. The natural science thread has been strong throughout her career as a biology teacher at Ithaca High School, in her personal life of gardening and flower arranging, and now her focus in retirement on digital artistic photography.
