The Mountlake Terrace Arts Advisory Commission presents the Cory Koch Photography Exhibit at the Mountlake Terrace Library, 23300 58th Ave. W.
Cory Koch was born and raised on a farm near a small town in rural Nebraska. Shortly after college graduation, he moved to Seattle to earn a Masters Degree in family therapy. During his college years, he was a disc jockey, and later became a family therapist and county psychiatric evaluator. He lives and creates artistic photography among the tall evergreen trees in rural Monroe.
A common theme of his recent work is capturing the beauty and complexity of the aging process of old artifacts of human life, with a focus on colors and textures. The images are on metal or canvas, and often depict abandoned houses, cars and other Americana.
Koch prefers metal and canvas substrates because of how the material interacts with the colors as well as additional textures they add to the work. His artistic photography has been shown at several art exhibitions in King and Snohomish counties, and an image was jury accepted into the 2015 “Arts of the Terrace” art show in Mountlake Terrace. More information can be found at his website, www.corykoch.com.
The show runs through Dec. 31 at the Mountlake Terrace Library, Mondays through Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Fridays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sundays 1 to 5 p.m.
