By making a photograph I want to convey a feeling, an emotion or a remembrance for the viewer
I found this quote, “Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.
― Edgar Degas”
And found I can relate.
I spent many years learning how to make art with a camera. Found inspiration in the works of others, but, the work was of the others, and not my own.
I practiced to make what I saw in others art, somehow my own.
Not until a recent show at the Parkwood Gallery in Toledo, Ohio, did I make art that connected with others and then became my own.
Others saw and commented that they felt connected and reminded them of a memory or place.
The Silver Lining Gallery, owned by Sherry Seiler and Lisa Exner, features the work of over 180 local artists. Located in the quaint town of Waterville, Ohio on the Maumee River, the gallery is housed in a renovated bungalow built in 1907. Every corner of the unique shop is filled with an eclectic mix of art. Jewelry, paintings, prints, functional art, fabric design, pottery and glass are all featured.
