Local photographer Raimist to show at Weinberg in April

The Frederick area blog surfers probably already know from hitting Frednet that local photographer David S. Raimist will soon be the featured artist in a show to be held at the Weinberg Center for the Arts in downtown Frederick. According to a press release, the show is the next up in an ongoing display of multimedia art exhibits.
Raimist will display a selection of his images during in an exhibition that opens on Friday April 6 and runs through Memorial Day weekend in the lobby of the Weinberg. The exhibit will be open when the Weinberg Center lobby is open.

Born and raised in Glassboro, NJ, and graduate of James Madison University, Raimist moved to Frederick in 1989. A software developer from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Raimist first developed his affair with the camera when in high school.

According to his bio, as he grew older and busier with his career, the camera was left behind. In 1994 he rediscovered his love for photography with the birth of his son. Last Fall marked his professional debut as an artist with his work included in the Hyattstown Mill Arts Project's "Our Sense of Place" exhibit. Raimist's work has since shown at the Delaplaine Visual Arts Center, the Cultural Arts Center in Frederick, and the Urbana Regional Public Library.

Raimist said that the show will include photos taken during a 2-week trip with his son to Germany in June 2006 for the FIFA World Cup, several of Frederick’s sister city, Schifferstadt, photos taken locally, as well as from some of his other travels over roughly the last two years.
While no formal reception is planned for the show, he says that he will be at the Weinberg during the First Saturday events in both April and May. There will be no admission fee to attend the show and prints will be available for purchase.

A 17-year resident of Frederick County, he currently resides in Woodsboro with his wife, Michelle, and their two children, Evan and Claire. To learn more about his work, visit his blog at
