Art Center exhibits minimalist photos
Fredrickson's work seeks to capture the essence of her subjects.
The Evansville Art Center will exhibit a show of minimalist photography Friday, Sept. 4 through Saturday, Sept. 26.
Photographer Cathie Fredrickson describes her work as seeking the "essence" within a picture with minimal distractions, while some of her photos are post-minimalism.
Fredrickson, of Fergus Falls, said she started taking pictures seriously about five years ago after turning 65. At first, she photographed mostly sunsets and flowers, posting them to social media photography sites or sharing them with friends and family.
A Facebook suggestion led her to a minimalist photography site with more than 13,000 members from around the world. Fredrickson had no idea what minimalist photography was, but she joined anyway and learned all she could. Since then, her work has won several internet awards.
She administers another minimalist photography site that teaches others how to see, and how to take better minimalist pictures. She considers herself a "very enthusiastic hobbyist" rather than a professional.
The Evansville Art Center follows current COVID-19 guidelines, requiring masks and a limit of 10 visitors at a time. Hand sanitizer is recommended. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.
