This is a benefit art show for the Rockcastle Karst Conservancy at the Sharonville Fine Arts Center, featuring the photography of Robert Coomer. Join us on Friday, July 6th from 5 – 8 for the show’s opening reception and the chance to purchase jewelry and other fine, hand made items, crafted especially for RKC by local artisans.
Above+Below is a collection of photos and artwork by award winning photographer Robert Coomer that reveal mysterious and beautiful images from beneath the Earth’s surface and the natural beauty of forgotten rural barns and back road landscapes. The images capture the world of natural light and color and then contrasts it with a world of complete darkness, of alien shapes and forms that are rarely seen.
The Rockcastle Karst Conservancy is the only locally based 501(3)(c) non profit organization whose mission is to protect Kentucky’s karst environments and support responsible access to caves in the Rockcastle Region. Kentucky has a unique and rich heritage; part of this tradition is the enjoyment of their cave resources. Through wise stewardship and ownership we hope to allow this tradition to continue for generations to come. RKC has close ties with the Greater Cincinnati Grotto, and is the owner of Great Saltpetre Cave in Mt. Vernon Kentucky. If you have ever caved with a local scout group, you have probably been to Great Saltpetre Cave, or may have even camped there.

The Westheimer Gallery is open W/Th/F from 10:00 to 5:00 pm and Saturdays from 10:00 to 2:00 pm

Old Barn in Berea, Kentucky
Me and my wife spent the weekend in Lexington for our 14th wedding anniversary. During the weekend we also took time to visit the Berea Craft Festival. It’s nice to be on the other side of the tent, so to say, every once and a while. I had my camera gear with me, but had decided i wasn’t going to spend much time taking photos this trip.
On the way back to Lexington, the sky had some really nice clouds, but being the middle of the day the sky was a little washed out. While driving in circles on the back roads, trying to track down a location on my GPS, I spotted this old barn and silo and knew it would look great in infrared. I circled back and pulled out my infrared modified Canon 30D and fired fired off a couple shots, actually a series of images that could be stitched together as a horizontal, or vertical panorama, or as just a standard 4×6 aspect photo.
I loaded it to my laptop that night and made a few quick edits, and came up with the above image. This image is actually a stitch of 3 images from top to bottom. I think it turned out pretty nice.
