September - October 2018 | Celia Culver Rutt

8 AM - 4 PM (M - F) | Frances Plecker Education Center

Celia’s work reflects her fascination with the natural world, capturing the beauty and order of what is often unseen, with close up photography. While her work emphasizes the realm of nature macro photography, her subjects range from expansive landscapes to the intricacies of ice crystals and wildflowers.

Celia’s works has been exhibited and sold throughout the region and is on permanent display at the Highland Medical Center and Highland Public Library in Monterey Virginia. 

Her work has been described as “painterly”, “well seen”, and “infused with light”.

She holds a Master’s of Science in Biology and Science Education and has taught Biology, owned and operated a landscape design business, and began photographing to have illustrations for Horticultural Classes she taught at the State Arboretum of Virginia and the National Arboretum during the 1990’s.

A native of Washington, D.C. and Maryland, she presently resides with her husband in Highland County and Staunton, Virginia.
