Capturing nature on canvas and by camera
By Heidi Masek hmasek@hippopress.com

• In focus: Learn about composition, exposure, focusing, lighting and camera operation for nature photography and then put ideas into practice in the field. David Saxe of USA Aloft (usaaloft.com) hosts three workshops at The Massabesic Audubon Center on Saturdays, Oct. 6 through Oct. 27, from 1 to 4 p.m., Audubon Way in Auburn. Bring a camera, preferably digital. Members pay $60. The nonmember fee is $80. Call 668-2045 to sign up.

• Mountainous subjects: “Consuming Views: Art and Tourism in the White Mountains” features paintings from the grand hotel era between 1850 and 1900. The exhibit at the Museum of NH History at 6 Eagle Square in Concord finishes Monday, Oct. 8. You can also see the works and read about them at nhhistory.org. While that show closes, McGowan Fine Art is opening a show called “Hiking the 4,000 Footers,” which features watercolor and oil paintings of the White Mountains created by Catherine Tuttle. The show runs Oct. 9 through Nov. 16 at 10 Hills Ave. in Concord, 225-2515. Meet Tuttle Friday, Oct. 12, from 5 to 7 p.m. during the Art Concord gallery night. She has recently hiked all of the 48 mountains in New Hampshire. Other Art Concord participants include Mill Brook Gallery, the Franklin Pierce Law Center, Gallery 205, The Robert M. Larsen Gallery at 29 School St. and Kimball-Jenkins School of Art. Call 224-2508 or visit concordnhchamber.com.

• New in Manchester: The Wine Studio is showing Roxanne Labbe’s colored pencils and oils, “Expressions in Abstract,” in October. The show opens with a wine tasting from R.P. Imports Thursday, Oct. 4, from 6 to 8 p.m. at 53 Hooksett Road, 622-WINE. Labbe earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Notre Dame College and has studied at New Hampshire Institute of Art. Yvonne Wheeler, Manchester Artists Association Artist of the Year, exhibits her pastels through Oct. 27 at E.W. Poore, 531 Front St., 622-3802. There’s a reception for her Thursday, Oct. 11, from 5 to 7:30 p.m.

• Different view: Three New Hampshire residents affected by sight loss, Vicente Paratore of Derry, Heidi Piroso of Concord and Mason Grugnale of Lyman, will have their work displayed in the State Library’s Map Gallery at 20 Park St. in Concord but probably not until at least the end of October, (800) 491-4200. The show, originally scheduled for this week but postponed because of construction, is hosted by the State Library’s Talking Book Services in honor of Art Beyond Sight Awareness Month, an international initiative to promote art and culture by and for people with sight loss.
