Dean Burton
“Vertical Landscapes: Wet/Dry (Revisited)”

The Nevada Arts Council presents "Vertical Landscapes: Wet/Dry (Revisited)" a series of photographs by Dean Burton, in its Carson City office through April 1 as part of the Office eXhibition Series (OXS). This series reflects Burton's interest in making photographs using optical and chemical techniques that evolved during his experimentation with panoramic photography. “Wet/Dry (Revisited)” is sub-set of the “Vertical Landscapes” series which grew out of Burton’s trips throughout the West. Juxtaposing ocean/water scenes with a variety of desert textures, he explores the counterpoints of this body of work.

Burton is currently a Professor of Art at the Truckee Meadows Community College in Reno, NV. In 2011, he will be featured in The Altered Landscape collection catalogue from the Nevada Museum of Art. Burton received an Artist Fellowship in 2006 from the Nevada Arts Council.
