July 21 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
The Boulder Junction Public Library presents local astrophotographer, Kate Reichl, on Thursday, July 21, at the Boulder Junction Community Center. From 6-7 pm, Kate will have an Artist’s Reception in the library with the opportunity to view her photography on display as part of the “Art in the Library” July exhibit. Then at 7 pm, Kate will be discussing “The Northern Lights in the Northwoods” in the Boulder Lake Meeting Room. Kate will share how she captures images of the northern lights right here in the Northwoods. Along with the northern lights, she also photographs the milky way, comets, and other celestial objects.
Kate is a graduate of The University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee where she studied film and photography. She has won numerous awards for her photography and has been featured in galleries and magazines throughout Wisconsin. She has also won awards for her films and has been selected multiple times to screen at film festivals across the world. Kate recently returned from Iceland, where she had been living while working on a documentary about avalanche survivors in the town of Ísafjörður. Here she was also able to work on astrophotography and capturing the northern lights. Her love for astrophotography started at home on Plum Lake, where she was always fascinated with the night sky. She wanted to be able to capture that beauty and share it with others who aren’t lucky enough to experience it in person. Astrophotography remains her main focus in photography, and documentary her main focus in film.
This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. For questions and further information, please call the library at 715-385-2050 or email [email protected].
