   Every June new shutterbugs align the walls at FMAAA gallery in order to showcase the popular medium of photography. This year brings Joe Morgan of Keokuk, Kathy Fuerman of Ft. Madison, and Heath McPherson of Danville to the feature gallery, showcasing their individual styles. Ft. Madison Bank&Trust is the sponsor for the exhibition. A reception for the artists will occur June 3rd from 5:00-7:00pm, right after the finish of the Grand Bazaar vendor blender on historic Avenue G.

   Joe Morgan is a lifelong resident of Keokuk. “I am a survivor of the 60's and 70's. My education in Keokuk schools is where I took the photography class that began my journey. That intro has grown into a lifelong passion. Along the way I attended college at Culver-Stockton and had a cup of coffee at Western Illinois University. I started doing photography professionally over twenty years ago and opened my current studio, Mississippi Valley Photography, ten years ago. Nowadays I split my shutter time between professional work and nature photography. I love sharing photos and the techniques I use to achieve my results with others.”

   Kathy Fuerman is a Ft. Madison native who works in multimedia to create one-of-a-kind, unique works of art. “I have an Associates degree in Graphic Design. I currently work with multiple mediums to create for other people. I enjoy creating with photographic images, pencil, pen, and chalk mediums. To create the mirror works, I use a combination of chemicals and adhesives to attach a reverse image face down on the mirror's surface. After curing for 48 hours I slowly remove the paper backing and leave the ink on the mirror. To create the canvases I print the image on tissue paper and apply it to the canvas; than mat and frame it”

In college he met his wife Lisa, who was from Burlington, Iowa. They now live in Danville. Heath worked his way through college as a freelance livestock photographer. He mainly shoots natural scenes, rural landscapes, and macro. Heath currently serves on the Board of Directors at the Arts for Living Center in Burlington.
