Nature photographer to speak at UW-M/WC
For Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD – The public is invited to attend a talk given by Dixie Langreck Monday, Nov. 9, at 6 p.m. in Gallery 450, at UW-Marshfield/Wood County.
Learn more about how Langreck, Marshfield native and UW-Marshfield/Wood County alumna, creates her compelling photography of waterfalls, woodlands, and portraits.
“The passion for nature that I discovered as a child stayed with me as an adult, only now I search for that beauty with my camera … luckily for me, in Wisconsin natural beauty is abundant. My work is mainly focused on nature but also includes portraiture with the same principle applied … to look through my lens, and no matter the subject, to find the inherent beauty that exists in all living things,” Langreck said.
Langreck was honored with the first UW-M/WC Outstanding Art Student Award in 1990.
Gallery 450 is located in the lobby of the Helen Connor Laird Fine Arts Building. Hours are Monday-Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and during most Arts at the UW performances. The art talk and exhibit is free and open to the public.
