Meet Ryan L. Taylor

Ryan L. Taylor is a wildlife, nature, and landscape fine art photographer from Beavercreek, Ohio.

He studied at the New York Institute of Photography, graduating in 2017 with certificates in Professional Photography and Travel Photography. Any other experience he has is self-taught from going out in the field.

The majority of his work focuses on the genre of nature photography, and specializing in wildlife, wildflowers, trees, and landscapes, often traveling to far off scenic locations away from home or near as can be. He delivers stylish framed and matted fine art prints while also promoting conservation and wildlife ethics.

Call it experiential photography: documenting the living things around us and delivering that moment to you, the viewer, is his purpose. Reflected in his work is a deep ecological concern for the fragile and precious environments on our planet, although he tends to focus on what beauty is already there rather than the harrowing consequences of humanity’s actions that affect tomorrow.

You can view more of his work at www.RyanLTaylor.com

AUGUST / SEPTEMBER LOBBY SHOW: /╦łtrib-yoot/ – A Village Artisans Sisters Show

The sisters are at it again! After last year’s successful “Triple Dog Dare Ya” show, Village Artisans member Carol Culbertson and her two sisters Nancy Crawford and Barbara Richey are hosting the show /╦łtrib-yoot/ from August 16 through September 30. There will be an artist reception on Friday, August 16 from 6-9 pm. Both the exhibit and the reception are free and open to the public.

All three sisters have a background in teaching. Carol, who lives in Enon, is a retired elementary school teacher; Nancy, who lives in Johnstown, is a middle school art teacher; and Barbara, who lives in Xenia, teaches Computer Tech at several elementary schools in Xenia. The sisters all create art in a variety of mediums including painting, quilting, and pottery. Carol and Barbara are also weavers.

When asked the significance of the show’s title, Carol replied, “The art in the exhibit is meant to show gratitude, respect, and admiration for all those who have inspired, encouraged, and assisted the three of us as artists along our journey.”
