“Prime of Night,” a digital art installation by Raleigh Ormerod of Keene, is on display in the East Room Gallery of the United Church of Christ in Keene, now through June 25. Ormerod creates digital art that is printed on metal for a glossy result. He begins with triangles of color and ends with vibrant depictions of night-active animals—bear, coyotes, a jaguar. Each work is unique and copyrighted with the Library of Congress.
The public is invited to an Artist Reception from 5:30 to 7 pm, Thursday, May 25. The East Room Gallery is located on the ground floor and is handicapped accessible. Enter the Church through the back door from Vernon Street.
Ormerod serves on the Keene City Council and School Board. He came to this artistic inspiration during a long medical journey, but never had artistic interests or abilities before his illness. He points out a heart line in many of the animals, and finds his art exemplifies resilience and hope. For more about the art: raleighsreflections.com
