The July Artist of the Month at Butterfield Garage is photographer Tina Henle. If you miss meeting her during First Friday Art Walk on July 6th, a collection of her thought-provoking work will be on display during the month of July.
Photography has always been a part of Tina’s life. She was raised in a family where art and travel were the centerpiece of focus. Her father, Fritz Henle was a preeminent photographer and she acquired her first camera from him at the age twelve. She grew up on the island of St. Croix and traveled to Europe with her family in the summers. In 1984 she received a BA in Art and Anthropology from the University of New Mexico and worked and mentored with her father throughout the 1980’s. She has exhibited in numerous group and solo shows in the Caribbean and the US.
Tina currently resides in St. Augustine and St. Croix where she freelances as a wedding, portrait, and commercial photographer and is constantly adding to her fine art portfolio. She is the owner of the Henle Studio Art Gallery in St. Croix and a member of the Butterfield Garage Art Gallery in St. Augustine.
Butterfield Garage Gallery, an artist-run gallery with 30 artist members, is open 11:00am-5:00pm daily. For information call 904-825-4577.
