Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Feb. 29, 2012 13B Taylorsville woman to showat museum Carole Jacks,an's photography on display through April In 1979, Carole Jackson re- ceived a single lens reflex camera for Christmas. Equipped with a variety of lenses, including a macro lens, Jackson became fasci- nated with the ability to zoom into the most intricate of details. During a first photo ses- sion in her yard among her flowers, she came face to face with a potato bug look- ing directly at her. Through the macro lens, the bug and photographer locked eyes, and Jackson was transport- ed to another world. From that time on, shewas hooked, and it has been her desire to pass on to others -- through her photography that same magical experi- ence. Jackson's fascination with the natural beauty around her naturally led to her progression from hobby to profession and she began submitting to, and getting published in, various publications, including Country Magazine, Sacra- mento Magazine and Nevada Magazine. This led to other work pro- ducing and supplying sub- ject specific photographs for various Plumas County and Northeastern California companies, and she has sup- plied many such photos for Plumas Corporation and the Plumas County Chamber of Commerce. Even some of her personal family photos, such as a sled- ding scene of her daughter and granddaughter, have been sold and hang in such places as the U.S. Forest Ser- vice office in Quincy. Theatre .... debuts with 'Parallel Lives' "Parallel Lives" opens March 16 at the West End Theatre in Quincy for a' run of three consecutive week- ends. Starring Kim Carroll and Tina Terrazas, "Parallel Lives" is the first produc- tion for the theatre. Doors open at 6 p.m. Fri- days and Saturdays, and the curtain goes up at 7. The Sunday matinees open at 1 p.m. for a 2 p.m. show. Tickets are on saIe at Epilog Books, Carey Candy Co. and Alley Cat Cafe. Although Jackson credits the noted photographer Philip Hyde, from Genesee, as being a great influence on her back in the 1980s, taking the time on several occasions to help her learn some important aspects of photography, she notes humorously, "The majority of my training has been trial and error, and I am mostly self-taught. I learned what not to do most of the time." To say she has learned well is an understatement. Her photographs, ranging from soaring landscapes to intimate close-ups, awaken a sense of wonder that allows the viewer to be drawn into the scene, conveying all of the surprises, beauty and emotion a picture may hold. One gets a sense that he or she is a part of the scene, a feeling of "being there." Today, since picking up that first camera more than 30 years ago, Jackson's port- folio has grown to over 4,000 photos and her first subjects, insects, are still close to her heart. Says Jackson, "From butterflies to worms, I've had the pleasure of captur- ing these wonderful crea- tures in their natural habi- tats. I enjoy the spiritual as- pect of nature and have spent many hours in the qui- et of nature's settings while doing my work. Brooks and streams, lakes and creeks, deer out feeding at dawn, the song of a bird in a tree and the natural flow of nature are all an escape from the busyness we all encounter on a daily basis." Jackson is also captivated Taylorsville artist Carole Jackson expertly captures the beauty of natural scenes. T see more of her work, stop by the Plumas County Museum in Quincy during March and April. Photo courtesy Plumas County Museum by the ability to preserve history through her photog- raphy. As a photographer living in Taylorsville. she has built up quite a collec- tion of photos of buildings that no longer exist in Plumas County. "The desire to photograph these subjects began one day as I drove around Indian Valley and noticed many old, dilapidat- ed barns and cabins. I want- ed to preserve the memory that each one represented," she says. In the process, She has helped many remember times long gone and brought back memories once cher- ished. Says Jackson, "I find the camera to be an excellent tool to capture things that might otherwise be over- looked. My passion has been to transport others with a click of my camera by shar- ing the things I am privi- leged to see." Jackson's photographs will be on display March 1 through April 30 in the Plumas County Museum's Stella Fay Miller Mezzanine Gallery, with an artist's opening reception set for Friday, March 2, from 5 to 8 p.m. The Plumas County Museum is located at 500 Jackson St. in Quincy and is open Tuesday - Saturday, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. For more infor- mation, contact the mnsum at 283-6320. ? ," ..... , .... --llm U| Damage?
