Sedona AZ (May 21, 2013) – As part of the ongoing Sedona Public Library in the Village Rotating Artist Series, Eric Gofreed is now displaying his bird, bug, and macro-photography at the village location. Some of Gofreed’s artwork will be available for purchase. A reception for the artist, titled “Bugs and Birds I Love”, will be held at SPL-V in Tequa Plaza on Wednesday, May 22 from 5:00 to 7:00pm. Postcards of his favorite photos will be available at the reception.
As Gofreed says, “I guess I get a little bored because I change my hobby every 4 or 5 years. I love learning. I love using my mind, and I am creative.” He has been a landscape painter, a painter of children and people in landscapes, a bird carver and for the past several years a photographer, mainly capturing unique photos of birds and bugs in sharp, exquisite detail.
Professionally he has been a veterinarian for 40 years. Recently retired, Gofreed is now a full time bird and bug photographer living in the Village of Oak Creek. His macro-photography will be on exhibit until mid-July.
