Pismo Beach Veterinary Clinic is proud to display selected works from local artist, Karen Peterson.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Born in Oahu, Hawaii, Karen experienced life from the east coast of Virginia to the west coast of California, the mountains of Colorado to the high desert of Wyoming. Most recently Karen spent nine months experiencing the beauty and wildlife of Alaska. Now she is residing in Arroyo Grande and focusing on exploring and painting some of the many incredible scenes from the Central Coast.
Karen Peterson would be considered a contemporary realism artist with a Bachelors degree in Horticulture from Cal Poly State University, San Luis Obispo and an Associate’s degree in Fine Art and Graphic Design from Central Wyoming College, Riverton, Wyoming.
Inspired by her love of travel and animals, her deepest desire is to translate the splendor of landscapes and personality of animals into images of interest and harmony for the viewer.
Pismo Beach Veterinary Clinic is proud to display selected works from Bay Area photographer, Scott Haefner.
Scott Haefner is a professional photographer based in the San Francisco Bay area who frequently shoots in places that most people choose not to venture. Photographing abandoned buildings and other forgotten places, often under the cover of darkness, is what captivates him the most. His work has been featured in the San Francisco Chronicle, Los Angeles Times, BBC News, Photo District News and Photo Techniques, as well as specials on the Discovery and History Channels.
Scott’s aim is to create distinct images from unique vantage points using techniques such as light painting, shooting at night, and kite aerial photography.
Shooting in low light enables him to sculpt and manipulate the light in front of his camera, lending more control and creative opportunities. Scott uses flashlights, off-camera flash, and colored theatrical gels—often in combination with natural moonlight—to “light paint” the scene during the exposure.
Like being outdoors enjoying nature and the elements (which Scott also enjoys photographing), exploring abandonments is often a visceral and perhaps even spiritual experience. “Urban exploration” cuts to the core of an innate curiosity that exists within all of us; it also satisfies Scott’s sense of adventure and sometimes gives intense adrenaline rushes.
Through his photography, Scott hopes to lend a window into a world that most people will never experience.
