2022 Offsite Gallery exhibiting artist “Places” September 2 – October 14, 2022
Award winning Owatonna, MN County Fair and Arizona State Fair exhibiting artist.
Wedding and portrait photographer.
Charles Rucker aims to evoke a sense of joy and content in the viewer while portraying the emotion of each encounter with his subjects. Viewers will sense the North Dakota warmth and chill, a reverence for vast prairie-lands, and the distinct beauty of the Southwestern Sonoran Desert after a dusting of snow. Observational photographs focus on Rucker’s fond memories of the old homestead barn, the night time flowering of a Cereus Cactus, the beauty of the sentinel Saguaro Cactus.
Rucker states, “Expressing gratitude and kindness is an art. We must take the time to embrace the art of life and living and enjoy long walks while listening to the sounds of the waves.”
