Our new exhibit is “West Virginia Dreamscapes” by Jesse Thornton.
Thornton is a native of Point Pleasant and a current resident of Huntington West Virginia. He was inspired to pick up a camera as a simple excuse to get out of his comfort zone, travel more and document his journeys. Jesse quickly became obsessive about the art of photography and addicted to chasing down the adventures that were born from that obsession.
"There's nothing more gratifying to me than finding that rarely glimpsed scenic vista painted with warm, late evening light or a lonely, forgotten night sky untouched by artificial lights," said Thompson. "I've seen quite a bit of the country through my camera, but nothing makes me more inspired and motivated than capturing my home state of West Virginia."
