See China through an artist’s eye

“China: the Other Side” is a collection of 18 photos by award-winning Littleton-based photographer Cheryl Opperman, with images captured during a five week trip to China. The exhibit is at the Highlands Ranch Library, 9292 Ridgeline Blvd. through June 30. For information, call 303-791-READ.

“In the Heavens” shows terraced hills, planted with rice and a breathtaking mountain vista. Her sense of drama also resulted in images of lonely fishermen, silhouetted with trained black cormorants, colorful village scenes and more. Beside each is a scroll with background information. Storytelling is combined in pictures and words.

Opperman is an honors graduate of Brooks Institute of Photography, which is based in California and coaches students to travel the world, recording its wonders, if that’s their inclination. In 15 years, she has visited 15 countries on six continents, recording people, wildlife and nature.

Her work has won awards in more than one year at Littleton’s annual Through the Eye of the Camera show and she has been published in National Geographic World, Nature’s Best Photography, Ducks Unlimited, Denver Post. She has exhibited at the Smithsonian Natural History Museum.

She teaches classes and also exhibits her work online and at her gallery in the Santa Fe Arts District space she shares with her brother: Colorado Voice Clinic and Gallery, 930 B W. 7th Ave., between Santa Fe Drive and Kalamath Street, south side. The gallery is open during weekday business hours and on First Fridays, including June 5, from 6 to 9 p.m. See artdistrictonsant
