Contact: Sue Haley, District Interpreter, 508-255-3421
October marks the beginning of the 2013-2014 Cape Cod National Seashore's Perspective Series. Artists who have captured the essence of Cape Cod National Seashore through their work, present exhibitions at the Salt Pond Visitor Center in Eastham. Each month beginning in October and ending in May, paintings, photographs, and other types of media are on display in the classroom of the visitor center.
The underwater lily series of fine art photography by William Scully will be on exhibit in October. Photographed in a small kettle pond in Truro, these images present water lilies and their reflections from a non-traditional and eye-catching perspective. Mr. Scully says "nature is the inspiration for my work and I enjoy seeking out and probing into the hidden areas of the natural world."
As an avid SCUBA diver, and drawn to water and conditions with unusual light, Mr. Scully has travelled to oceans around the globe, with his digital single lens reflex (DSLR) camera in a plexiglass case. Even with these experiences, he finds the local kettle ponds on Cape Cod to be one of the best places for his underwater artistic compositions.He was selected as the non-professional "Nature Photographer of the Year" at the 2011 International Photography Awards, and he was nominated for a Lucie Award from the same organization. He is based in Jamaica Plain and Truro Massachusetts.
