Local photographers to display creative
works in "That's What Eye Saw" exhibit

WYOMING, MN – Inspiring photography will be the focus of a community-wide arts event to be held this month in Wyoming.

"That's What Eye Saw" is the theme of the exhibit which will be held Thursday, Jan. 22, at the Spirit and Praise Pentecostal Church, 5521 E. Viking Blvd., Wyoming. The event, which is free and open to the public, begins at 6:oo p.m. and will continue until 9:00 p.m.

The sponsor of this special community event is the Wyoming Area Creative Arts Community (WACAC), a nonprofit arts organization. Its mission is to encourage creative expression, promote the networking of artists of all ages, and champion a learning environment that builds community participation in the arts.

With that mission in mind, WACAC organized "That's What Eye Saw" to spotlight the three local photographers whose works will be on display throughout the building for the night's special event.

Photographer Billie Jo Bylund focuses on outdoor and nature photography. She has opened a studio, Buffalo Plaid Studio, which she says allows her to "share my work, pursue my dream, and celebrate the beauty of Minnesota."

When not serving as a storm chaser, Travis Rosauer takes photographs and makes videos at many community events, from car shows and air shows to weddings and music concerts.

Ben Andersen, a resident of North Branch, centers his work in the art of digital photography. He says that he is always looking for the opportunity "to capture natures' beauty and share it with others" through his photographs.

All three photographers will be present at the show to answer questions and talk with guests.

Also, a musical program will be held throughout the evening featuring Mary Hall, local professional singer and accomplished guitarist, whose music appeals to

audiences of every generation.

In addition to the featured artists, members of WACAC will be present throughout the evening, mingling with guests to answer questions and to offer insight to budding artists, who will be encouraged to consider membership in WACAC.

"We welcome everyone who is interested in the arts to attend our "That's What Eye Saw" special event and to experience the creativity that is thriving in the Wyoming area," said Eric Peterson, board chair of WACAC.

Currently with 41 members, WACAC has a goal of growing to 50 members, who are engaged and interested in all areas of the arts, from photography and poetry to writing and painting and all the wide range of arts in between, said Peterson.
