Rita J. Maggart is a photographer and artist in Nashville, Tenn. Botanicals and nature are the subjects of her oil paintings and fine art photography. Rita’s mission statement is, “Always, always I must communicate and create.” With a background in oil painting and floral design, Rita photographs florals as portraiture and finds excitement in revealing the message of the botanical image. She began her study of photography at Nashville State Community College and has studied with several well-known professional photographers in the Southeast. Her fine art photography can be found in private collections and art galleries in Tennessee.

About Insight
Maggart states, “Insight invites the viewer to enter deeply into nature’s form and beauty. The audience sees more than what the subject looks like; they also see what the image has to say. The goal of my conceptual photography is to guide the viewer from the obvious to the abstract, and through investigation, make visible what is invisible to the casual observer. As an artist, I enjoy the creative process from concept to presentation. Insight has been a joyride through camera, computer, printer and presentation.”
