Night Light of Humboldt Photography by David Wilson

When: Through Dec. 31

The stunning beauty of Humboldt County at night will be on full display in the photographic exhibition “Night Light of Humboldt County” at Arts and Drafts this November. An opening reception will be from 6-9 p.m. during Arts! Alive on Saturday, November 3 at the Gallery. Arts and Drafts is located at 422 1st Street, Eureka – in the old First Street Gallery building on the Waterfront. David Wilson, of Eureka, explores the light of Humboldt’s natural nightscapes, where long exposures, remarkable star-filled skies and the unusual light always found at night combine to create unique images that cannot be seen by our naked eye. “I’m drawn to photographing light in the dark of night,” Wilson said. “Light is much different at night, coming from unusual sources and in unusual colors.” The long exposures he uses allow him to capture the beauty of our nighttime Humboldt County, often with Milky Way soaring majestically over all. David currently has weekly photography features at the North Coast Journal (northcoastjournal.com) called “North Coast Night Light” and Redheaded Blackbelt (kymkemp.com) titled “Night Light of the North Coast.”
