April Featured Artist
Toth-Smith's wildlife photos at Mendo Co-op
Award-winning wildlife/nature photographer and author Pat Toth-Smith is the Artists’ Co-op of Mendocino featured member artist for April. Her show “Coastal Life” is on exhibit from April 3 – May 6. .Join us for the Second Saturday reception, April 13, from 5-8 pm, with the Artist’s Talk at 5:30. The gallery is on the corner of Kasten and Albion Sts. In Mendocino.
Pat captures animals’ expressions with reverence and humor. A fine art Wildlife/ Nature Photographer with more than 20 years of professional experience, her photos have sold in numerous markets, prestigious galleries and hundreds of fine art shows and festivals in the west. In her Artist’s Talk, Toth-Smith will share how photographs and stories help reestablish a connection with nature/wildlife and maybe inspire others to get out into the wilderness more often. "Frequently, while photographing, I am drawn to the overall aesthetic of a wildlife scene, not just the drama that may be occurring at its center. My focus is less about getting the action shot and more about making the wildlife feel comfortable in my presence. I try to convey the connection of the wildlife to its environment.”
Toth-Smith is an award-winning author. Her book Wild Among Us: true adventures of a female photographer who stalks bears, wolves, mountain lions and other elusive wildlife,won the USA’s best book award, a gold medal in the Living Now Awards and a bronze medal in the e-Lit awards. She was interviewed on more than 25 radio stations throughout the U.S.
