...just a hint at what you will see.
Last week, I had the immense pleasure of enjoying a preview of the ART ON VIEW at the Library. This video, bits and pieces of the whole, truly only provides a hint at the extraordinary photos that will be on display at this exhibition.
Like I said, this is just a hint at what's to come. (We''ve got more to tell you, so please check back.) Below, a bit about Elsie Trask Wheeler...in her own words.
"The idea of creating images has woven its way through every aspect of my life. Skiing down the slopes of the Alps, or trying to spot a tiger from the back of an elephant, or hoping to catch a shot of the colorful spinnakers on boats trying to pass as I stood on the fantail of a competing yacht, I was never without my 35mm camera. Being in the thick of the action, getting that split second shot was a central component of my love of photography. What else fueled my thrill of bringing back exciting images, which I wanted to share. A warm love of people, a gift of endless curiosity, that feeling of having to know what is around the next corner.
How did I learn to master the little black box? My father and uncle were both excellent amateur photographers. They provided the implicit permission for me to take myself seriously as a photographer when a teenager. Their darkrooms were haunts of magic and wonder to my young mind."
Please come by and experience this show.
