2022 Offsite Gallery exhibiting artist
“Places”

A long time resident of North Dakota, Rucker’s “Places” series focuses primarily on the vast prairie-lands surrounding the Southwestern Sonoran Desert.

Charles Rucker aims to portray the emotional feeling of each encounter with his subject. 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, and the familiar glare of his dear feline companion.

Rucker states, “Most importantly, I hope to evoke a sense of joy and content in each viewer.”
