Gallery Artist Takes On The Wild Side Of Photography

Posted 4/2/2013

By Jackie Nelson

The Hesston WalkAbout Gallery, located in the Hesston Wellness Center basement, features a new, and exotic display this month.

Jared Burkholder, a photographer, is this month’s featured artist.

To encourage residents to visit the display, Burkholder is raffling off a photograph to one lucky winner.

“I would like people’s input of the collection.  I have seen these photos so many times…I would like to know what other people like about them, and why.  I will have slips where people can tell me their favorite picture and why.  At the end of the month,  I will draw one and they can have that picture,” he said.

 Burkholder took an interest in photography as a way to further his primary career in ministry and outreach.

“I took a photography class in college. I planned on being a missionary and I knew that good photography would be important and it taught me how to be a little more streetwise,” he said.

To Burkholder, a picture was worth a thousand words to help people relate to the experience of others abroad.
