RANDOLPH – Photographs by Bethel’s Jesse Orr are now on display in the Gifford Medical Center art gallery.
Orr’s show titled “The Looks of Vermont and More” runs until March 28 and includes everything from fall foliage blazing above winter snow, to snapshots of Irene’s devastation and its survivors.
Orr got his start in photography when his grandparents gave him a digital camera as a graduation gift. He started taking pictures wherever he went, and then he started sharing those photos with family and friends.
Now many in the area know his photography.
He has shown in the Gifford Gallery for each of the last six years. He has been a vendor at the Bethel Farmer’s Market since its inception in 2006, and his photos have been featured at the Frog Hollow Craft Shop in Middlebury.
Orr’s works are currently hanging at Ketner’s Café in Randolph. He has cards at Chaplain Farms in Bethel and participates in local presentations of art at the Bethel Public Library and Bethel Historical Society Postcard Show.
Many of his images depict Vermont nature in changing weather and sunlight, such as rainbows and at dawn and dusk. He carries his camera wherever he goes, capturing images out the truck window on his way to work, off the back porch at home, driving around to look at nature, or even from the sky by plane.
To see Orr’s latest “Looks of Vermont and More,” visit the Gifford Gallery. The gallery is located just inside the hospital’s main lobby. Gifford Medical Center is at 44 S.
