Art League Gallery will host Eloquent Light, a collection of landscape photography by local artist Bill Bogle, Jr., this October. The exhibit includes familiar Lowcountry scenes of Spanish moss-draped live oaks and oceanfront dunes, the vibrant red rock formations of the American west, and solemn views along the New England coast. Bogle’s passion and success lie in recording moments when the light reveals his subjects at their most meaningful.
“Eloquent Light is the illumination that captures nature’s beauty, from the crisp morning air at sunrise, to reflections in water, to light dancing off hills, trails, mountain peaks or canyon walls,” says Bogle. “It is the quiet in nature to present as I see it. The images I have chosen for this show express the beauty of the outdoors from the Lowcountry to national and state parks and locations throughout the United States.”
Bogle, a former New England lawyer-turned-photographer now based in Ridgeland, SC, credits his daughter for rekindling his love of photography when she was only 11. He has been displaying and selling his photographs for the past 15 years. His work can be seen in local galleries such as the Society of Bluffton Artists and the Beaufort Art Association.
Eloquent Light will be on exhibit October 1-26, 2019. An artist reception will be held Wednesday, October 9, 5-7pm. The artist is hosting two gallery walks on October 5 and 19 (5-7 pm) to discuss his work in greater detail. Bogle will delve deeper into his work at national and state parks on the October 19 gallery walk from 5 – 7 pm.
Art League Gallery is located mid-island inside Arts Center of Coastal Carolina, 14 Shelter Cove Lane, Hilton Head Island, 843-681-5060.
