Photography show at Quincy St
Posted date: Jun 5, 2016

It's always a joy and a learning experience to be able to see through someone else's eyes. Cheyenne Center for Creativity has given us the opportunity to to just that with the menagerie of images at the Quincy Street Gallery.

St Francis photographers represented are Jennifer Padgett, Allison Grice, and Jordan Zweygardt.

Jennifer is exploring the interplay of black and white photos with a splash of color. The result has the same feeling as that moment just before sleep, going through that door into an unknown room. Her photography service can be found on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/Kaptured-301500400763/

Allison Grice's pictures, on the other hand are rich with texture and the beauty that can be found in rough places.

Jack Stevens from McCook NE has several large prints of flowers. The colors and detail are perfect and gives you a bee's eye view of the intimate beauty of Nature.

If you are interested in any of the pictures on display, call Kary Zweygardt at 785-332-0308.

The Gallery is open Thursday and Friday from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm and Saturday from 9:30 to 12:30.

WHAT ARE COVER CROPS?
Written by Fred Wedel, Retired NRCS District Conservationist

What are cover crops? Cover crops are grown for the protection and enrichment of the soil. In Agriculture, cover crops are used to cover and protect the soil rather than to be harvested.
