Jeb Schenck

Jeb Schenck's pictures from the desert, ocean and the Morano Glacier of Patagonia are among those being displayed at the Nicolaysen Art Museum in Casper beginning Jan. 27

Jeb Schenck – Chasing Light, is the newest exhibit at the Nicolaysen Art Museum in Casper, opening Jan. 27.The one-man show, which runs through May 7, features about 60 photos in both black and white and color that Schenck has taken over the last 10 years.

The show will fill two of the Nic's galleries, the Bordewick and Durham.

Schenck said the majority of the shots are landscapes, but there are some wildlife photos included.

"I'm working on filling my wildlife portfolio," he said. "Most of what will be on display is from the last ten years or so, but there is one silver print from 1982 that I took in the rain forest of Nepal."

A former science and photography teacher at Hot Springs County High School, Schenck taught school and earned his doctorate degree, all while traveling the world, climbing mountains and taking his award winning photos.

Many of the photos in the exhibition are from places most people only dream of visiting, the Patagonia Mountains, Huayhuash Andes and Iceland, while others are very close to home, including Yellowstone National Park and our own Hot Springs State Park.

The Smoking Waters Art Guild will be gathering for a trip down to Casper to see the exhibit at some point and there will be an end of show reception on May 4, from 5:30 – 7:30 where Schenck will be on hand to discuss the photos and what techniques were used to capture the once-in-a-lifetime shots.
