FEATURED ARTIST:  Robert Cuerden


I started taking photographs at an early age, when my grandfather gave me a  Kodak Brownie when I was still living in England. I still have those images today. Since that time, I have always wanted to record global images of events, intricacies and patterns of our world that create emotions for the viewers. In the last 4 years, I have exhibited at various galleries and have undertaken professional customized photography and have successfully sold stock images, prints and framed photographs of people, outdoors, farming, sailing, worldwide.

Exhibition Run Time: June 26 – December 11, 2018
