The Boulder Junction Public Library’s November “Art in the Library” exhibit features Tim Feathers and his photography, on display in the Reading Room, above the photocopier and in the Children’s Area during regular library hours.
Feathers is a retired art teacher. For 31 years, he taught everything from kindergarten to 12th grade in 10 different buildings. Most of his time was at the middle school level. About 10 years ago, he decided to get back into photography as a diversion from going through radiation treatments for salivary gland cancer. Since that time, Feathers and his wife have done everything from kid and family portraits, senior portraits, and weddings.
But his real love for photography is when he blends it with their love of the outdoors. He and his wife love to backpack and canoe. They make frequent trips to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area and the Porcupine Mountains. In 2016, they decided they were ready to buy a place of their own in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. So now it is from the Wisconsin Northwoods/Upper Michigan that Feathers bases his photography.
Places his work has been displayed include: Center for the Visual Arts, Northern National, The Artist's Muse (Howard Young Medical Center), Porcupine Mountains Visitors Guide, Wowspace, Wisconsin Great Lakes Calendar, Wooden Canoe Heritage Association's Calendar, Our Wisconsin Magazine, and Wooden Canoe Magazine.
