It's Opening Season

Now that Spring is truly, truly about to arrive (I hope) in spirit rather than in name only, I can make it to more gallery shows and openings. I'm looking forward to scoping out nooks and crannies in the Connecticut and New York arts scenes that I haven't previously explored.

To that end, I'd like to encourage anyone for whom we do printing (both digital and traditional) to send announcements my way lysbeth[at], and I will do my best to post information on the blog. If I pop out to an opening, let me know if it's ok if I put a small pic on the site.

In the news here, the co-owners of Connecticut Photographics and Still River Editions, Catherine Vanaria and Mark Savoia, have both been accepted into the 2d Annual Camera Works Juried Exhibition (Juror: Nat Trotman) at the Ridgefield Guild of Artists. Catherine's piece is a 20x24 print from her recent 8x10 camera portrait series. Mark's piece is a stylized landscape. Both are black and white.

April 26-May 22
Opening Reception Sunday, April 26 3-5 pm

Today looking for links, I re-remembered that a friend of mine co-authors a blog called Connecticut Art Scene, and thought I'd share that with you as well. It's a good way to keep track of the many things going on outside of my immediate local area, but still driveable. I'll post more things like that as I come across them.

Also, a few days ago I finally had a chance to visit the Gallery on Main St. in Bethel, CT. I had been hibernating for so long, I hadn't realized it was there until very recently. It shows an interesting mix of local/regional and national artists (including Barbara Morgan and Pete Turner), and both color and black and white work. I enjoyed talking with the co-owner Rory Pszenitzki, and suggest stopping in to look around.

Thanks for reading ~ Lys
