Nature photograph by photographer Darren Clark

REXBURG, Idaho— Brigham Young University-Idaho is featuring the work of art faculty member Darren Clark in its next exhibit titled Habitat and Refuge: Photographs by Darren Clark. The exhibit will run February 15 through March 2, and there will be an opening reception for the artist on February 14 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. where visitors can meet the artist and enjoy light refreshments.

An avid birder and landscape artist, Clark presents photographs of birds and landscapes in locations associated with bird watching in North America. The landscapes Clark captures are remarkable, ordinary and/or forgotten, but all emphasize the beauty of fowls and the phenomenon of nature.

“Photographer Darren Clark takes visitors to unique scenery and locations that are very exclusive to birders,” said Spori Art Gallery Curator Kyoung Dabell. “The exhibit introduces over 125 species of birds in breathtaking photographs.”

The BYU-Idaho Spori Art Gallery features the works of local and regional artists as well as the university’s permanent collection. The gallery is open to the public from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on weekdays and 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Saturdays. Private tours are offered to groups of 15 or more guests and can be booked by contacting sporigallery@byui.edu.
