Penny Heath Kring is excited and grateful to have this opportunity to share some of her lesser-known photographic work. This work expresses her love for and attunement to Nature. Penny finds that images come to her as she opens her senses, mind, and heart to the beauty of the world that surrounds us .

Penny’s journey into the realm of nature photography began over 15 years ago when she was on a walk with her father on Cottage Hill Road in Redwood, NY.   A mentor had projected that she would be taking images of winged things, and the following morning she found a wounded moth, put it in her coffee cup and took it to the studio.  The dramatic moth-in-flight image that resulted came to represent a transformation in the way Penny sees things at every level–physical, mental, and spiritual–on a daily basis.

Since then, Penny’s nature photography has evolved in an organic give-and-take relationship in which her artistic openness and nature itself intertwine to create images of light and beauty.

A love of nature, a passion for children, and a sense of the need to look to the future of our fragile planet Earth form the foundation of the photographic exhibition by Penny Heath Kring opening this summer at the Iva Smith Gallery of Fine Art in Hammond, New York on Tuesday July 5th at 4:30 p.m.

The exhibit is titled Save this Extraordinary Earth for All Our Children.  In these images, viewers will find a sense of myth, magic, mystery, and reverence for all that is sacred in the created world.
