East Central University faculty member Linda Schaefer’s passion for photography will be on display Friday through Monday at the JRB Art at the Elms Gallery, located at 2810 N. Walker, in Oklahoma City.

“I find beauty wherever I point a camera,” said Schaefer, whose exhibit is entitled “Sacred Places” and will be a part of Paseo’s First Friday Gallery Walk.

Exhibition times are from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. each day.

Through Schaefer’s work, viewers are able appreciate the special places she has roamed among various countries including Veranasi, the most ancient city in India; the Tiber River, located in Rome; and the Ponte Sant’Angelo Bridge in Italy along with other scenic places in Mexico and Ireland.

“Sacred places are important for the soul because they help quench our thirst for intimate connection to life’s purpose,” Schaefer said.

She is a photographer and writer by trade, but an artist by intuition as her work has appeared in The New York Times, Time, Newsweek, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Parade Magazine, Paris Match, GQ, The Los Angeles Times, and Stern to name a few.

Schaefer resides in Ada with her son Paul and is faculty member in ECU’s Department of Mass Communications.
