My friend/mentor/owner of Connecticut Photographics Catherine Vanaria will be included in the Connecticut Women Artists' 80th Annual Open Juried Exhibition from June 20-July 25.

Cathy's entry, shown above, is from her recent black and white portrait series captured using an 8x10 film camera. The behemoth 8x10 has built-in mojo, and it invites a deliberateness that is rarely present in making a digital photograph. There's an unbelievable degree of intimacy when you are that close to the camera/that close to the subject.

There will be a reception and awards ceremony on Saturday, June 20 from 2-4 pm. The exhibit is located at the Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts, 2132 Hillside Road, University of Connecticut, Storrs, Connecticut 06269-3104

In addition, Cathy is now posting her portfolios to blogs accessible here or by clicking on her name above.
