Art Designed by Nature - Staci Doucett Photography Exhibition

Come see the humor of nature and the serenity of paper cutting in our two newest exhibitions open from 6pm on July 12 to closing on August 9.

Art Designed by Nature”
We first met Staci Doucett when she put her stunning photography in last year’s #ArtCityPC exhibit. We’re so lucky that she’s a part of the Art Center’s family now!

Staci specializes in nature photography often featuring birds, alligators, bugs, and flowers. We already have several of her purses and notecards on sale in our gift shop, and we’ve finally found a spot in our schedule to show her work! Come see her ode to nature in our Higby Gallery.

Staci Doucett is dedicated to her art. So dedicated that she once broke her foot running after a red-tailed hawk to get the perfect shot. She didn’t get that shot, and then she had to wait on the sidelines for a year while her foot healed! But she’s back at it—waiting patiently on beaches and running after birds. Only now she looks down.

That’s just one of the lessons Staci’s learned in her five years of taking photographs as a full-time hobby. Her journey into photography started online, when she began following Destin photographer, Scotty Lisenbe. Scotty soon became her mentor, encouraging her to get a camera and start taking her own photographs. After Staci had been shooting landscapes for a while, Scotty told her to get a telephoto lens and start taking pictures of wildlife.

“I remember thinking, ‘Oh my goodness, how boring!’ But I went ahead and bought my first telephoto lens,” said Staci, “and once started doing using it, I realized that I was so wrong!”

Now most of her work features pictures of birds taken with that telephoto lens. “I focus on birds mostly because I need things that are fluid and in motion. I find it challenging. I try to capture things that express a feeling and convey a message. And there’s a lot of things birds do that are humorous.”

Come see the humor of nature and the serenity of paper cutting in our two newest exhibitions open from 6pm on July 12 to closing on August 9.
