There’s nothing like coming face to face with the natural world.
Except maybe seeing the work of Manheim photographer Chuck Rineer.
His exhibit “The Eyes Have It, 3rd Edition,’’ opening Monday at the Art Space at HACC Lancaster, puts the viewer eye level to the dozens of magnificent residents of the Wolf Sanctuary of Pa.
The 22-acre sanctuary, located at 465 Speedwell Forge Road in Lititz, is home to more than 40 wolves. Public tours of the facility are offered. See the website, www.wolfsancpa.org, for details.
Rineer, an accomplished wildlife photographer whose work has been chosen by National Geographic for the magazine’s photo library, and has been featured magazines and books, also works as a part-time volunteer guide at the sanctuary.
He will discuss his experience as a wildlife photographer during a reception Thursday, April 17, from 5-7 p.m.
He will also give a talk about his work at the sanctuary as part of the campus observation of Earth Day on Monday, April 21, from 1 to 2 p.m. in Room 203 of the East Building.
Hours for the free exhibit, which continues through May 7, are Monday to Thursday, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
