Local photographer featured in art gallery in July

The works of local photographer Eric Schultz are on display July 1 to 31 at the Penn State New Kensington Art Gallery.

Shooting in both panoramic and detail, Schultz focuses mostly on landscapes and nature photos. The exhibit, “Scenic Pennsylvania and Beyond,” features more than 100 pieces in black and white and color.

Although the longtime Lower Burrell resident has displayed his work throughout the greater Pittsburgh region, the campus show is the first to display his complete panoramic works. Previously, he has hung selected photographs in Bella Art Gallery in Shadyside, Latrobe Art Center in Latrobe, and Allegheny Valley Hospital in Natrona Heights.

"This is my first opportunity to be a 'featured artist' and to exhibit all of my landscape works in one place," said Schultz, a 1974 graduate of Burrell High School. "I am looking forward to hosting my first artist's reception."

The artist's reception will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. on Monday, July 12, in the campus gallery. The exhibit and reception are free to the public.

When he is not indulging his creative passion, Schultz is a computer programmer for Pennsylvania Transformer Technology in Canonsburg. In addition, he is active in the community, serving as photographer for Lower Burrell Volunteer Fire Company No. 3.

The Art Gallery is open to the public from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. weekdays and noon to 5 p.m. weekends.
