Jim Rossol, long-time visitor to and now full-time resident of Door County, will exhibit his photography in the UU Gallery for the month of June. The opening reception for “Worthy Clicks” on Sunday June 2 from 2 to 4 pm is open to the public
Rossol is a graduate of the University of Illinois, Champaign- Urbana with a degree in Journalism and Communication. After a successful career in sales and marketing he retired to Door County and took up his latent interest in photography. As a student of photography at the Peninsula School of Art and at Bjorklunden/ Lawrence University he launched into a successful hobby. Over the past ten years he has exhibited his photography at shops, restaurants, the YMCA, and the Guenzel Gallery.
His interest in pre-digital photography was sparked at an early age. In high school he joined a camera club and became interested in printing his photographs.
This exhibit “Worthy Clicks” is of digital images. Most of the landscapes and close up studies were inspired by Door County scenery. Rossol is very precise in his methodology. To his advantage, he is intuitive, observant, curious and quite selective. He portrays his subject matter in unique perspective. Every picture is thoughtfully composed.
Rossol states, “Some of the images are printed using archival standard inks on cotton canvas with stretcher bars and do not need to be framed, while others are traditionally matted with frames that are tree-friendly and non-toxic”.
The UU Gallery is open on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 1 – 3 pm and on Sunday from 11 am – 12:30pm.
