The bicycle-driven photography of Andy Ruland will be on display from April 7 through May 15 in the Southern Light Gallery at Amarillo College.
Ruland, a professional chemist with roots in Western Pennsylvania, relocated to the Fort Worth area after his retirement and turned his focus to photography.
Inspired by a lifelong interest in biking and “my passion for shiny metal bike parts,” Ruland undertook to amass a portfolio of conceptual works—Bicycle Conceptual Art. He did so by constructing sculptures built of bike parts, transporting them to various locations, and making his photographs.
“I enjoy creating scenes that contrast metal with natural objects,” he says.
The Southern Light Gallery is located on the first floor of the Lynn Library on AC’s Washington Street Campus. The gallery is free and open to the public.
