This month Studio 17 is featuring the photography of Dana Gage. Mr. Gage is a self taught “photo enthusiast” originally from Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Photography has been his passion many years, but he’s only recently begun to market his talents professionally. This past year, Dana has taken first place at local photography competitions sponsored by organizations including the Veterans Administration, the City of Cheyenne, and the National Arts Program.
Dana’s bio reads, “Living in Cheyenne affords me access to some of the greatest natural beauty there is. The huge skies of The Great Plains, the nearby Rocky Mountains, historic architecture, and abundant wildlife makes this an ideal area to shoot photographs.”
Dana’s show opens with a reception during Art Design & Dine on April 12th from 5-8:oo pm. Studio 17 is on 17th Street, just east of Capitol .
