Eagle Eye for the Mountain Home GuyJul 01, 2023 09:00AM ● By Lilace Mellin Guignard
Have you ever seen Wade Spencer’s photographs? That’s a trick question because the photo on the cover of this issue is his, as are many of the inside photos. But our pages aren’t the only place to see his work.
Wade, our new art director (more on that in the August issue), has drone photographs on exhibit this month in the Gmeiner Art & Cultural Center’s Atrium Gallery in Wellsboro. An Eagle’s Eye View: Tioga County from Above will be on display July 8 through July 30. Large format HD metal prints (18 x 24 inches and 16 x 20 inches) of top-down views in several seasons give an extra sharpness and color vibrancy to the image and resist fading. “I chose to print on aluminum so they’d be very durable,” he says.
Wade enjoys drone photography because “it’s a unique perspective that most of us don’t get the opportunity to see.”
The opening reception is Saturday, July 8, from 2 to 4 p.m. The Gmeiner is located at 134 Main Street, Wellsboro. Regular hours are noon to 6 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday. Admission is free, and prints will be for sale. For more information about exhibits go to gmeinerartculturalcenter.org, find them on Facebook, or call (570) 724-1917.
