SEAD Gallery is proud to announce its newest exhibition “Dérive” by Dr. Conrad Earnest. This exhibition will be on display Jan. 19 – March 11 with an opening reception on Jan. 19 at 6:30pm in the SEAD Gallery. Conrad Earnest’s incredible scenic photography captures scenes from the BCS area to landscapes from his international adventures. At this intersection of technology and nature, Conrad allows the viewer to see things others would not or in a way that is not typical. “Dérive” is a spontaneous journey that allows the spirit of the landscape to attract and move one. This sensation propels Conrad through his nature tourism endeavors, in which he spends more time getting lost rather than finding the road less traveled.
“As a photographer, I have no mystic, sensual, artistic, altruistic or philosophic reason for my photography….I just like it,” Earnest says.
Conrad Earnest is a former professional soccer player who holds a PhD in Exercise Physiology. Conrad also feels strongly about giving back to his community. A portion of the proceeds from this exhibit will benefit Phoebe’s Home, the domestic violence services program of Twin City Mission in Bryan. We will raffle off prints of his work during the opening reception to benefit this shelter. This exhibit is proudly sponsored by Sterling Auto Group and Neighbors Health.
