Cindy Horovitz Wilson, a resident of Wickford Rhode Island, has been making photographs of Rhode Island since 1976. She chooses her native turf as subject for her fine art images. Among them, windswept landscapes and moody seascapes serve as rugged backdrops for quiet studies of architecture contemplated in unexpected perspectives.
She earned her BA from the University of Rhode Island in 1978, studied at RISD & the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and received her Masters of Fine Art from Tyler School of Art of Temple University in 1984.
Cindy developed an independent wedding and portrait photography business, and for 20 years earned a admirable reputation for her candid, unobtrusive professional approach.
Cindy's has memberships in many art associations, most recently the Providence Center for Photographic Arts, Art League of Rhode Island, Mystic Art Museum of Art, 19 on Paper, the Newport Photo Guild, & South County Art Association. She continues her active affiliation with the Wickford Art Association where she served on the board for 10 years (with two as president). Cindy has had regular exhibitions of her fine art photography, as well as winning awards in juried shows.
Cindy enjoys showing yearly at the Wickford & Narragansett Art Festivals, as well as West Bay Open Studios, where interaction with interested art lovers gives the opportunity for discussion about her work. From 2003 to 2006, she co-founded and established Wilson Scott Galleries of Wickford Rhode Island. At Wilson Scott, she continued in the direction of establishing herself as a well respected fine art photographer.
Together with Eileen McCarney Muldoon, Cindy established Profundo Journeys Photography Workshops. They teach classes on local and international levels. Their 2009 trip to the South of Italy has been followed by Greece, Hungary, Cuba, Vietnam & Cambodia, Ireland & Peru. A return to Cuba, the Czech Republic, Cinque Terra and Portugal are planned for the future. The path of travel, photography and teaching is the direction Cindy has always been working towards.
You can visit Cindy at her studio in the Lafayette Mill, North Kingstown where she exhibits her fine art photography and regularly teaches photography classes.
