Artist Information:

My interest in art began at an early age drawing military vehicles and planes.  In high school, I began to experiment with photography.  While in college, I took a couple of art courses.  After graduating from the University of Akron, I began my career in education.  I spent thirty-six years working with high school students at Archbishop Hoban, Walsh Jesuit, and Brecksville-Broadview Heights.  I spent most of my time in education as a guidance counselor helping and advising students.  After I retired, my interest in photography was reawakened. I entered some of my work in the Stow-Munroe Falls Library Amateur Photography Contest and received several awards.  My work has also been displayed at the Summit County Metro Parks Exhibit and Stow City Hall.  In 2017, my wife Carla and I published a children’s book based on our travels to the national parks.  We wanted to share with young children the beauty and geographical diversity of the United States.  Our book, Denali Visits the National Parks, is about a dog who travels to the parks and what he learns as a result. I photographed the pictures in the book.  I hope you enjoy the photos displayed in this exhibition.  —Dan Weiss
