A new web site…what an undertaking! The process of choosing and modifying templates, visualizing the navigation of pages, and categorizing the photos, was like a huge puzzle. Thoughts came together during walks and long bike rides, and I am proud to announce the new cindywilsonphoto.com website. I have categorized my photos into fine art local images and travel images, and can now add images on an ongoing basis. I look forward to editing and uploading my images from our 2013 Profundo Journeys Ireland photography workshop, a gallery of New England images, in addition to earlier bodies of work.
Bob Kidd http://www.bobkiddphoto.com & Cindy Blair http://www.cynthiablair.com have both been incredibly helpful in this project; Bob for his never ending support as I learned the Zenfolio system and Cindy whose web designing skills have served me so well over the past 5 years.
The spring & summer of 2013 have been full of other projects and opportunities. I am honored to share the Save the Bay galleries in Providence with Beverly Thomas and Jodie Eyre until July 18. The lobby at the Save the Bay facility is well lit and very suited for exhibitions. http://www.savebay.org
The 51st annual Wickford Art Festival, Saturday and Sunday July 13 and 14, from 10-6 PM is our 20th year as exhibiting artists. My booth, still with the 'Cindy Horovitz Photography' sign is #235, at 14 Main Street in front of ''Elle G' (the site of the former Wilson Scott Galleries).
This spring I taught Photoshop Elements in conjunction with the North Kingstown Arts Council. I am amazed at how many tools are included in this program. Scheduling is in the works for another introductory session this fall, followed by a more advanced class. Look to the www.nkartscouncil.org website for all class listings. In addition to the PSE class, the first Digital Scrap Booking class was developed on a pilot basis. This 5-part class introduced Photoshop Elements in conjunction with creating a photo book, from existing files and scanned photographs. Projects range from a children's book of animals to the construction of the original Jamestown Bridge. Another class will be offered this fall, again through the Arts Council.
Planning continues for our upcoming photography workshops to Block Island, Cuba & Vietnam. For more information, please visit http://www.profundojourneys.com for the full prospectus on each. I have also included information on my new web site for all upcoming workshops, exhibits and classes. Teaching has developed into a passion. I am continually learning and love to share my experience as I present new ways of explaining technical and creative concepts. Together with Eileen McCarney Muldoon www.emmimageloft.com, we hope to see you in a future class or workshop.
