June/July 2014 What’s new in the Studio of Cindy Wilson Photography
I’m fresh back from a reconnaissance trip with Eileen McCarney Muldoon to Williamstown Ma, to plan our Profundo Journeys ‘Autumn Light’ photography workshop in the Berkshires. I haven’t spent time in this part of New England, and found the area to be full of bucolic vistas and traditional farms. There were surprisingly more mills and the accompanying industrial infrastructure than I’d anticipated. I’m looking forward to the four day workshop to be held from September 28-October 1. Please visit profundojourneys.com for more information.
Thursday evening, June 26, is the opening for the prestigious Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts show at the Mystic Art Center. My piece, “Havana Night” was accepted for this show.
This weekend, Saturday and Sunday June 28 & 29, is the Narragansett Art Festival. I will be in booth #20 showcasing new travel and local photographs, and talking up classes and upcoming workshops. Please stop by if you have the opportunity!
On Monday, June 30, I will be creating an exhibition of art with my fellow artists of 19 on Paper at the Hive RI, 650 Ten Rod Road in North Kingstown. The exhibit, in this progressive business community workspace, will be on view for the months of July and August 2014. The opening reception is July 19, from 5-7 PM.
My studio space continues to evolve into exhibit space, classroom and portraits. In July, a four-week class “Making Friends with your Digital Camera” begins. The sessions will be structured with lessons, critique and field shooting with homework assignments. The classes will be small, 6 students only, so that each individual can be guided through the material. Enrollment is already 2/3 full!
The Wickford Art Festival is right around the corner, July 12 & 13, 2014. I will once again have the spot in front of 14 Main Street, once home to our Wilson Scott Galleries. Come for a visit, rain or shine!
