The Leelanau Conservancy through the Lens of Ken Scott is now on exhibit in Traverse City at the Dennos Museum Center. The exhibit will be on display from now until October 26, 2014 and is being presented in collaboration with the Leelanau Conservancy.

In celebration of its 25th Anniversary, the Leelanau Conservancy commissioned landscape photographer Ken Scott to take pictures of the natural areas and farm land it has preserved on the Leelanau peninsula. Ken, self-taught, has been photographing nature for more than twenty years.

“His delight and amazement in his subject are contagious,” says exhibition curator, Barbara Krause, of the Leelanau Conservancy, “Ken is fully attuned to his surroundings and exercising great patience, he waits for the perfect moment and then captures the unique qualities of the place. Each of the photographs selected for the exhibition invites viewers to look closely, engage their senses, and, like the photographer, savor their experience.”

The exhibition will consist of a selection of framed works by Ken Scott as well as a digital presentation of additional photographs from the commissioned work on a flat screen in the gallery.

There are also two programs in association with the exhibit:
