‘The Elegant Landscape’
Experience sights from national parks and hiking trails across the United States through “The Elegant Landscape.”
The exhibit marks Camerawork Gallery’s return to the First Friday Art Walk after a hiatus because of the coronavirus pandemic. It will be on display from Friday, Nov. 5, through Tuesday, Dec. 21, at the gallery, 515 Center St., Scranton.

Clarks Summit resident Robert Vielee captured images of scenery formed by both nature and man while solo camping across the country. He shot the photographs on film with a large-format camera and then scanned them into digital images. Vielee then printed the photographs onto metal using a dye-sublimation process, which creates fine detail in each print.
