The Upper Crust at 7 E. Market St. in Georgetown is now exhibiting works by photographer Keith Steck through Friday, Nov. 29. A Meet & Greet reception will take place from 12:30 to 2 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 14, at which individuals can discuss Steck’s art and his plans to bring an Art Trail to central and eastern Sussex County. Light refreshments will be served.
Steck calls his photographic style “stecktography” - a look at the everyday in a different way - and it reflects his love for the outdoors and seeing beauty in everyday things like reflections.
Steck initially started taking pictures more than 30 years ago while in the military in Germany, but he put his photography on hold while pursuing his public-sector career. Since then, he has rekindled his love of taking pictures after moving to Sussex County and exploring Delaware, especially on walks in Prime Hook or Milton or while traveling.
Steck has participated in numerous area photography shows and competitions in 2012 and 2013. He has won several awards in a number of these events, including first place in the Beauty of Prime Hook category at 2012 Friends of Prime Hook Photography Contest and Best in Show at the 2013 Lewes Public Library Photography Show and Sale. He has also displayed his photographs in other exhibitions, notably at Nassau Valley Vineyards, Cadbury at Lewes with the Coastal Camera Club, and the Ocean Imaging Center in Milton. His patrons are from Delaware, Kentucky, New York and Virginia.
In addition to photography, Steck also paints and uses his photographs as inspiration. Contact him by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Upper Crust serves made-from-scratch baked goods, fair trade organic coffee, breakfast and lunch in a casual setting. Part of The Upper Crust’s commitment to the community is to offer a gallery space to local artists who might not otherwise have an opportunity to show their works.
