“Ritter’s Lane” is among the black-andwhite photos in Jim Richey’s exhibition.

Courtney Silva April 13th, 2011

Despite having photographed some of the world’s most unique and exotic locations, Jim Richey highlights the beauty he found right outside his door in northwest Oklahoma in his latest photography exhibition, “Just Down the Road,” now on display in the state Capitol’s North Gallery.

Richey captures the beauty of his small town of Alva in a unique way, said Alyson Atchison of the Oklahoma City Arts Council.

“The viewers really get to see Alva through his eyes. He shoots the town in a way that he makes everything seem beautiful and interesting,” she said. “The framing and composition within his photos are remarkable. His photos are so peaceful, but have a lot of character.”

“Just Down the Road” is on display through May 1 during regular gallery hours, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Saturday and Sunday. For more information, call 521-2931 or visit —Courtney Silva
