My Sister’s Gallery Presents: “Nature All Around” by Peter Blackwood

January 17, 2023

Peter Blackwood has combined his love of the outdoors with a lifetime of learning photography to become a skilled artisan portraying the natural world. He retired from a career in Nursing in 2011 and has been able to ‘focus’ on his outdoor photography to create visual depictions of nature that are presented as pieces of art.

With frequent forays via foot and canoe, the Finger Lakes and the Adirondacks of New York are depicted intimately and on a grand scale. Landscapes and flora and fauna come to life in the images which capture those fleeting moments of beauty in nature.  Images range from broad landscapes to extreme close-ups. All of the images that do end up as framed pieces have something in common, which is that Peter felt he had captured a unique aspect of a scene that others would see in the image….an aspect that is universal and relatable.

In the past 15 years Peter has presented numerous solo exhibits at the Wood Library in Canandaigua, where he has also taught digital photography. He displays his art at the Pat Rini Rorher Gallery in Canandaigua, Wegmans in Canandaigua, the Canandaigua Library, and intermittently at various venues such as Image City Photography Gallery here in Rochester. Peter is a member of the Ontario County Arts Council rotating artists group. You can visit his website here.
