First Friday at Old Soul 40 Acres August 5, 2022

By Betsy Griest August 1, 2022

Our August First Friday event features landscape photography by David Nasater.  Please join us from 5-9 pm on August 5, 2022, for the opening reception for David.  Food and drink specials will be offered during the reception.  The display will continue through September 1.

Davis Nasater is a landscape photographic artist whose images deal with the concepts of place and time.  Like many photographers, he started at a young age by taking snapshots on family vacations.  It was when he saw the results from taking photos at a Kodak Photo Spot at Disneyland that he realized that there was more to the process than just pointing and shooting.  Later a pivotal point came when he took a class Beyond Landscape at the Davis Art Center and was introduced to alternative ideas of landscape photography.

“I’ve progressed in my work from the classic landscape to a more intimate form,” says Nasater.  “My goal is to inject a sense of time in addition to place in my works.  I want the viewer to see the image as a point in a continuity of events.”

He has exhibited predominately in Northern California, and his works are in a number of private collections in the area.  Nasater has won a number of awards for his works including Best of Show at the 30th Annual Vacaville Juried Art Show and the Juror’s Award at the 2018 California State Fair.

Nasater has a degree in Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley.  He is self-taught in the art of photography and is a member of a number of photography and art organizations.  He currently lives in Woodland, California with his wife Paula.
