Carol Lyon, Nov. 1st- Dec. 31, 2019
Carol Lyon always captures wildlife like no one can. She spent time as a zookeeper in California, where she was close enough to the animals to capture their subtle glances and candid moments. She creates dramatic backgrounds to highlight these moments, and in her exhibit, Squatters Rights, she places primates in human environments.
“Humans put themselves higher on the evolutionary ladder than primates, but haven’t primates been on the planet longer? When combined with human environs, they look extraordinarily at home. Are we just seeing them through prejudiced eyes? By expression, stance and attitude, these “squatters” belong next door. In fact, some look just like my real neighbors.”

Tracy’s Story: Originally from California, Tracy Loring now resides in Bastrop, Texas where she enjoys boating and exploring Texas backroads.

Artist’s Statement: I am constantly amazed at the beauty of nature. From the smallest details to the most majestic vistas, I love capturing the world around me through my lenses. I created my first homemade pinhole camera as a freshman in high school and have been hooked on photography ever since.
Over the years I’ve come to focus my work on nature and landscapes. I love finding the special beauty hiding in everyday objects. My husband and I like to boat and hike and I take the bulk of my photographs on our excursions.
My life’s passion is expressing and sharing the beauty of the world through my art. My hope is that through my images you might connect to the beauty that surrounds you each and every day, and in doing so, you connect to yourself as well.
