The exhibition of 34 images is now hanging on the Walls in the Yates gallery. I invite you if you can to visit the Siena College Library to view the work. The invitation and information concerning the show will follow. We had –according to my husband Frank’s count– we had almost 80 people attend. The gallery director, Sergio Sericolo who was a pleasure to work with, noted that they had never had as many people to an opening. So thank you all for coming.
Unfortunately I did not have anyone taking pictures of the reception and gallery talk. I am delighted that I have a SUNY photo journalism class coming for a walk through and a Siena class concerning Arts and activism also coming for a gallery walk through. If you would also like to bring a group for a walk through please contact me and I will help make the necessary arrangements. I do hope that many of you will make it to the exhibit and I would love to hear your comments.
I am very excited about the new work and can see the growth that I have made since my last trip to West Africa. It is a good feeling when I can say that about my own work particularly when I am the most critical viewer.
As always, in gratitude,
