Sherman County resident Lowell Smith is the Sherman County Historical Museum Featured Artist for October 2018.
Lowell was born and raised in Grass Valley, Oregon, and after graduating from Oregon State University he returned to the farm in 1975 raising his family and retiring in 2011.
Lowell got his first camera in 1964 taking photos of family, holidays and school events and in 2003, he got his first digital camera. After years of taking snapshots and using seven different cameras, Lowell began to use photo software and find the creative artist side of photography.
Lowell’s photos of the county are on display in the Sherman County Courthouse and he is an active member of the Sherman County Photography Club. He enjoys landscape photography, night photography and capturing the outdoor beauty along his hiking adventures.
Please visit the museum to view Lowell Smith’s photos. There is no charge for this exhibit which is on display in the lobby of the museum for the month of October. The award-winning Museum in Moro is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily through October.
