This Week in the Arts:

‘Intimate Landscapes,’ a photography exhibit by Albert D. Horner, is currently showing at The Noyes Seaview Art Gallery in Galloway Township.

South Jersey photographer Albert D. Horner's specialty is capturing moments in nature never to be seen again in real time. But viewers can linger over his images for as long as they want in his exhibit, "Intimate Landscapes," currently showing at The Noyes Seaview Art Gallery in Galloway Township.

A resident of Medford Lakes, Horner has been familiar with the scenery of South Jersey most of his life, particularly the area around the Pinelands National Reserve.

He describes the exhibit as a series of photographs exposing small niche areas of the environment that are beautiful, but rarely paid much attention, for example a grove of trees with light dashing through it, a foggy morning on an abandoned cranberry bog, or sunrise over a marsh.
