Noblesville Visitor’s Center Art Exhibit: Michael Jack
October 1-31, Fri.-Sun. 12-5 p.m.
Noblesville Visitor’s Center
FREE!
Michael has always been interested in cars, racing, and airplanes. About 30 years ago, he aligned those interests with photography and took hundreds of images of aircraft and race cars. A few years after this, Michael had a chance to drive on a race track and got hooked. After participating in a few driving schools, taking Skip Barber’s Competition Driving Program, obtaining a SCCA competition license, and competing in some races, driving became a very serious hobby–so serious, that when his professional career required a 60-80 hours a week commitment, one hobby had to go, and that was photography. After retiring a bit early, Michael decided to cut back on race track activities and pick back up on his photography hobby. Now photography is more than a hobby for Michael. It is something he is passionate about. Michael’s interest in photography is centered on landscapes, architecture and automobiles. In each area he tries to capture the ordinary in a distinctive manner to draw the viewer into the scene. The uniqueness could be the result of weather, lighting or time of day or it could be a view or perspective that adds a different dimension and feel to a particular scene. Michael uses varied amounts of post processing to enhance the purpose of the image, but aims to keep the final result looking pleasing, but realistic. Michael is a member of several local camera clubs, a juried member of the Hamilton County Artists’ Association, and a member of the Photographic Society of America.

NICE is not a contest, it is a safe and positive place to give and receive encouragement from local creative artists and art fans. NICE encourages inspired expression in all creative forms (visual arts, music, writing, etc), so let your imagination run wild! Email or Mail Entry Form to Logan Street Sanctuary.
