"My Mountain Highlands," an exhibit of photography by Frank Ceravalo, will be on display Oct. 2-31 at the Mountain Made Gallery in Thomas. People may meet the artist from 1-5 p.m. Oct 5.
"This is a collection of images from one of my favorite areas to shoot," Cervalo said. "The diverse landscape, wildlife and weather make it a new experience every time I pick up the camera."
While his portfolio includes images across the U.S. from Maine to Alaska, as well as Europe and Japan, he is obviously most at home shooting the hills of West Virginia where his photographic journey began. The images in this collection represent that journey in pieces that span both film and digital capture. Frank views the type of technology used as only the tool to aid the photographer in capturing the moment.
Ceravalo is a lifelong resident of West Virginia and the Panhandle and has more than 30 years of photographic experience. His award-winning photography has been shown in galleries across the state and can been seen in publications like Wonderful West Virginia and BlueRidge Country magazines, including being the featured photographer in the most recent September edition of Wonderful West Virginia magazine. His photography is also widely used in tourism publications in West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Tennessee.
