“Road Kill” by Jonathan Walzer, courtesy of the artist

The Edmonds Arts Commission presents an exhibit by Meadowdale High School Senior Jonathan Walzer in the McDevitt Young Artists Display Case at the Frances Anderson Center, 700 Main St. in Edmonds.

Walzer uses digital and 35mm film cameras, and develops his own film. Inspired by the beauty of the natural world, Jonathan says of his work, “My goal… is to do justice to the true image of the scenery.”

Domestic and wild animals are also a point of inspiration. “My photographs of animals are meant to show (the subject) in its habitat and to (highlight) the beauty and value of the animal.”

Jonathan took photography classes at Meadowdale High School from teacher Chantelle Moran. He won first place in the Animal category in the 2017 WA State High School Photography Competition, and a Gold Key Award in the national Scholastic Art Competition for his “Road Kill” photo. Jonathan graduated from Meadowdale this year and will attend University of Washington in the fall.

Jonathan’s photography is on display through Oct. 13 in the Frances Anderson Center Young Artists Display Case. The case is located next to the second floor elevator and is available for viewing during building hours. For information about Edmonds Arts Commission, go to www.edmondsartscommission.org.
