Herpich is next at Lumberyard
Dick Herpich’s “Photographs: Film to Digital, 1968-2010” will be on display at the Lumberyard Arts Center in Baldwin City.
An opening reception will be held Friday from 7 p.m. to 9 pm. The exhibit will then be on display in the gallery Tuesdays through Fridays from 1 p.m. to 4 pm and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon through Sept. 11.
Herpich, a retired Baldwin school district teacher, has a 50-plus-year relationship with the camera, beginning with a Kodak point-and-shoot in the 1950s through 35mm and, since 2007, digital. The Baldwin Ledger began printing his sports photos in the 1970s. He was first published nationally in the December 1977 issue of “Arizona Highways” magazine. His long association with “Kansas!” Magazine also began at the same time.
“My early inspirations came from color photos by David and Joseph Muench in ‘Arizona Highways’ and later from Ansel Adams' black and white medium and photographic wisdom,” said Herpich.
Herpich favors photos of nature, including landscapes, as well as KU and Baldwin High School sports.
The opening is being held in conjunction with the Baldwin Community Arts Council's August Art Walk, featuring quilts made by area fabric artists.
The Lumberyard Arts Center is located at 718 High Street, in downtown
