Epiphany will kick off the first Art Hop of the season with guest artist Beth Moore. The Hudson photographer is drawn to nature and her work clearly shows the mastery she has developed in presenting its quiet beauty.
Epiphany, located at 105 First St., Hudson, offers unique and one-of-a-kind items – the kind of store you can get lost in. When you stop by to visit with Beth, be sure to include some browsing time as well!
Beth Moore was born in Gloversville, New York. At a young age she enjoyed taking photos around the yard. She studied photography extensively in college earning a BFA at the Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, New York. After feeling stifled working years in the corporate world, she was able to return to her heart’s desire. She began using photography to express her love of nature which included vast landscapes, intimate scenes and wildlife.
She spent more and more time exploring nature and her passion really took off while photographing the Adirondack Mountains near her childhood home, as well as from traveling around the country and abroad. This produced a large variety of images. Beth decided to start sharing these images through greeting cards with family and friends. She established her company, Nature’s Graces by Beth, to share the beauty that nature offers with a larger audience.
Her wish, through this body of pictures, is that people will experience for themselves what Beth has felt when photographing natural places: relaxation, peace, contentment and beauty.
Her love of photography doesn’t stop with nature, however. As she studied documentary photography in college, her love of people grew even stronger. She owns her own studio business as a portrait photographer. “Every person who walks in my studio is special. I consider it an honor that they have chosen me to represent them and to create an heirloom for generations to come,” Beth says.
Hudson is a perfect place for her to reside. Beth says it closely resembles the atmosphere she loved in her childhood hometown: warm people, the inviting beauty of nature and the quaintness of an eastern NY town.
“When you are fortunate enough to be immersed in your love of nature and people, you are living a great life,” Beth says.
