Art at Straube Center

The Straube Center is Proud to Announce:


This three man show features these talented photographers: Thomas FicarroHarry Fish and Steven Murphy

A three man show that use the the camera as the eye of the artist. These three talented men see something through the camera that most people miss.

Thomas Ficcaro, Thomas is a self-taught photographer whose passion was ignited when his graphic arts teacher had him take a few photos for the school paper and he watched a black and white print come to life in a tray of Dektol in the darkroom. That passion stills burns in him today.  Starting out in commercial/industrial, aerial and later wedding photography, he soon discovered that his artistic vision was mostly fulfilled by nature, landscape, seascape and photography. His camera is his canvas, light is his paint and his eye is the lens that captures the beauty in nature. Thomas’s commercial work have appeared in Newsweek, Time Magazine and he does freelance work for Mechanics Illustrated. You can see more of  Thomas Ficarro’s photos on 500PX Marketplace.

Harry Fish , While traveling abroad during his time in the United States Navy, Harry discovered a love and passion for photography. Traveling to well over 30 countries his passion would grown into a desire beyond his wildest dreams. From Landscapes and Historic sites to Movie Stars and successful Recording Artists, Harry is most comfortable behind the lens. Although self taught, his career has expanded over the past 11 years and he continues to grow. His specialty is taking photos in places that transform with his creative lighting. He has had the pleasure of having one of his photos appear on the cover of an award winning novel and spends at least 4-5 days a week practicing new skills. He is the Owner of Harry Fish Photography, In His Image Photography Studios and Co-owner of Prolific Images specializing in high end sport photography. Harry can be reached at

Outdoor exhibit with local sculpture artists at Straube Center

In 2009,  the a sculpture  garden with “Art You Can Touch”, including large bronze, wood, metal, marble  and other stone carvings by a variety of locally as well as globally well-known  artists was added to the Straube Center Office Park.  Some of the three-dimensional art is on permanent display while some of it will be on exhibition temporarily. Most sculptures are for sale. The sculpture gardens is adding to the nurturing  environment and is giving more exposure not only to the seekers of enjoyment in art,  but to many visitors that may not normally visit a gallery. The high  number of sold art to date shows how much Straube Center tenants and visitors  enjoy this one-of-a-kind experience.
