The Anna Bier Gallery will present photographer, Rene Bechard, at Henry St. Clair Memorial Hall in Greenville on Saturday, NOVEMBER 4, 2017; the exhibit will be open from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. with an artist presentation at 7 p.m. The landscape of a soap bubble will quickly enchant you. As you begin to move your eyes over the patterns, you discover recognizable figures and shapes that capture the imagination. When you realize that these images are not drawn or digitally enhanced but that they are only common soap bubbles, you will begin to understand how unique, distinctive and beautiful they are.

Rene Bechard is a local photographer from Arcanum, Ohio. She was born in Connecticut and moved to Ohio in 1999. Soon after her move she rediscovered her love of photography. Rene began shooting nature settings, weddings and still objects. Then one day while blowing bubbles with her grandson, the idea came to her to see if she could capture the beautiful colors that seem to float on a soap bubble. After many attempts of using various lighting techniques, she was able to construct a lighting rig and capture the intense colors and shapes that swirl upon soap bubbles. Rene’s work has been published in The Sun Magazine, various local newspapers and website blogs. She has won photography competition awards and contests. She lives in Arcanum, Ohio with her 9 cats, 3 dogs and 1 husband.

The Bechard exhibit is sponsored by the generous donations of our members. This exhibit will run through December 9, 2017.
