"The Creator's Creations"

Photography by Sandy Caldwell 
On View at Second Story Gallery

Almost 40 years ago, Sandy Caldwell bought a used Nikon camera from a friend and started experimenting.  Then kids came along and life got busier.  Her photographs back then filled family albums.

Fast-forward 20 years to her arrival in Washougal and the gift of a digital camera.  Caldwell says she fell in love with the scenery of the Gorge.  She also fell in love with travel and the chance to photograph “God’s beauty and creation” so she can share the wonder with others.

Some of those vivid landscapes will be on display at Second Story Gallery during the months of December and January.  This will be the third gallery exhibit for the popular local photographer.  This time she calls her show “The Creator’s Creations” and focuses on travel destinations from the past several years.  “Many of my photos are about being in the right place at the right time,” she says.  Her goal is to share these “creations” with those who may not be able to see them in person.

Caldwell will unveil her work at a reception Dec. 2 from 5 to 8 p.m. in the gallery, upstairs in the Camas Public Library.  The show will remain on the walls through Jan. 28 and is free and open to the public. During regular library hours, the gallery is open 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.
