David Lackey – Because my earliest memories are from our farm on Lackey Road in Delaware, Ohio. Named after my great-grandfather. Old gray barns, dairy cows, maples too big to wrap your arms around, chickens, wheat and soy bean fields, hay pastures and pond – the backdrop for my dad and grandfather’s farming, my mom’s pie baking, my grandmother Lackey’s homemade noodles and cinnamon buns.

Seemed like something was always cooking and something was always breaking down – Allis Chalmers WD tractor, GMC pickup, shed roof, board fence, coal furnace. Some machine or building or apparatus always needing attention. And tools everywhere, never where you needed them.

Long before reuse, recycle and repurposing, my farmer grandfathers where making do with twine and barn wood and wire. Long before eBay and Amazon, there was Sears, the local hardware store, the lumber yard. You could fix anything with pliers and a hammer – use your tools to wield a little leverage over your material, make something new out of whatever’s laying around.

I’ve inherited several tendencies from those Lackey Road farmers:
– the desire to make something useful with your hands

Featured Artist – Lon Dittrick

Lon Dittrick – As a fine art photographer, my purpose in capturing an image is to evoke in the viewer the emotional response I experienced when witnessing “the moment” before me. This is much different than just “recording” the event in a moment of time through serendipity.
Many of the images I have captured, developed, and chosen to display have brought me literally to tears in appreciation of the astounding beauty and majesty of creation before me during that moment of inspiration. This may vary in scope from a vast expanse of a mountain vista to the glorious minutiae present in the structure of a cactus flower. My desire is for those viewing my images to experience that same emotional response. The creative challenge is to take the image which is seen and emotionally experienced by the photographer, capture it through the very limited and indifferent image capturing machine we call a camera, and reproduce it so that the viewer can “be there” with the photographer at that moment in time, crying those same tears of inspiration.

96 Petranek, Glenn 4Glenn Petranek – I am a photographer from the Cleveland area in Northeast Ohio. Where others look, photographers see. I enjoy sharing my visions and inspirations. Some have said I make Cleveland and the surrounding area look good. There is much that is interesting and attractive here, you just have to take time to “see” it.
