Hosting Photographers Strauss and Adams at the Next Island City Art Walk

On Friday December 17, 2011, Wilton Manors Main Street is proud to announce our participation in the next Island City Art Walk by hosting the landscape photography of Roy Adams and Scott Strauss.

Roy and Scott are local photographers who we are fortunate enough to call neighbors here in Wilton Manors.  Their love of landscapes and scenery is evident in their choice of subjects both of the local scene and such places as the Rocky Mountains, Canadian Rockies and the French Alps.

You will have a chance to visit with the Artists, and with us at Wilton Manors Main Street on Friday from 7PM until 10PM and find out more about their art.  For now, you can read more about them in the Press Release, Below.

Roy Adams and Scott Strauss

Roy Adams has enjoyed taking photographs for as long as he can remember. He realized a life-long dream when he graduated from the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale. He has photographed weddings and parties under his own name, Roy Adams Photography. He loves travel photography as well and enjoys seeing other's reaction to his work. He has won several awards in the juried art show held each year by the Allied Artists of Schuylkill County, Pottsville, PA, including honorable mention in the 2008 show.

Scott Strauss fell in love with photography at an early age. He remembers that his first camera was a Kodak Mickey Mouse film camera which required flash cubes. He used to play with nature photography in college and really developed a love for it once he moved to Florida. Scott loves the vast amount of flowers available in south Florida and enjoys taking macro pictures of them to capture the detail close up. In 2006, he entered the Arts United - United & Proud Exhibit and won “Best In Show” for a group of floral photos, each a different color of the rainbow. Scott also enjoys traveling and taking nature photography all around the world. His favorite places to photograph include the Rocky Mountains, Canadian Rockies, and French Alps.

This year, for the Island City Art Walk season, Roy and Scott are featuring their photography printed on canvas.
