Current Art Exhibit
Jim Schlett - An Exhibition of Fine Art Photography
July 15 to August 17
Jim Schlett has been involved in photography for many years, and it started with a graduation gift of a Polaroid camera from grade school in New Jersey. He later obtained an AA degree in Photography and Art. For several years he worked in a large commercial studio photographing products for ads in magazines and catalogs. From 1996-2011, as Director of Administration for the U. S. Postal Service's Law Department, Jim managed budgets, personnel, contracts, technology and facilities. In 2011, he decided to “refocus” on photography.
His photographs have been published in the Washington Post, annual reports, magazines, exhibited in local galleries and art shows, and won competitive awards. His portfolio was displayed in the Art Takes Times Square Exhibition in New York city in June 2012. He is a long-standing member and the President of the League of Reston Artists (LRA). With his wife Gail, they travel extensively and enjoy most of our National Parks for that special light. Jim's photography includes views of the natural beauty that is all around us that you need to stop and appreciate.
Jim's photographs are in the homes and offices of private collectors in Virginia, North Carolina, California, New Jersey, New York, Arizona and Washington, DC.
