Artist photographer Nancy Ridenour welcomed visitors to view “Near and Far,” her exhibition at the gallery during August. Subjects include flowers from her spectacular Ithaca garden and abstracts from sculptures made by Cornell architectural students in 1963. As a biologist and former Ithaca High School biology teacher, Ridenour is drawn to birds of Florida and animals in zoos and the resulting photographs are part of her show. She has her camera with her at all times to capture the essence of sites and objects she encounters—places as far away at Rome, Paris and Egypt.
