For that reason, we are encouraging individuals to pledge to volunteer their time during the slower months of the year. Please fill out the form below to pledge to serve your community.

Opening reception: Friday, December 5 from 6 to 9 p.m.
Natural Order represents several years work in capturing environments and elements that kindly align themselves almost serendipitously. Manmade or natural, there are moments where light and shadow can be caught to stop time and reveal an instant that might never be again. Add color and texture to the mix and the conditions are ripe for discovering this natural order almost anywhere.
Budge states, “I really don’t know what the world looks like to other people, but for me it’s a constant arrangement of shapes, patterns and composition revealing themselves. My eyes tend to dissect, crop and distill my surroundings. My background as a graphic designer has greatly influenced my photography style. I’ve found this analysis of composition is less cognitive and more intuitive. It just seems to flow from a visual truth within them. It’s natural, easy and quite beautiful.”
