“Places” by Charles Rucker

Charles Rucker, a former long time resident of North Dakota, who currently resides in Virginia, Beach, VA, displays a series of photographs captured throughout the vast prairie-lands surrounding the Southwestern Sonoran Desert in his solo exhibition “Places” at the Offsite Gallery in Norfolk, VA.

Join us for an opening reception September 2, 5-7pm. Free and open to the public.

Rucker aims to evoke a sense of joy and contentment 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. Rucker’s observational photographs focus on fond memories of the “Old Homestead” barn, the night time flowering of the Cereus Cactus, the beauty of the sentinel Saguaro Cactus, and the familiar glares of his dear feline companion.

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.”

Songwriter Roberta Lea put his story to music as part of the Tidewater Arts Outreach Once More Concert in 2021.
