Hunt Library Falls Village PATRICIA DECKER: SEEING THROUGH

11/03/2017 to 11/30/2017

63 Main St, Falls Village, CT Phone: 860-824-7424.

Reception: Friday, November 10, 5-7PM, Free. Patricia Decker's focus is fine art photography with an emphasis on STILL, as an adjective, noun, adverb and verb. Her studio in Lime Rock has a sign out front that reads STILL Photo. As the artist says, "STILL is a moment when the perfect 'found' forms meet, they resonate. The images in SEEING THROUGH are linked loosely in categories of WATER, TREES, FORMS. Subject matter is perpetually changing; it renders itself meaningless when the 'space' is found. Life is full of light, humor and relevance if you see it. I have some of that hidden in this group. Gallery Open Tues. & Thurs. 10 am - 5 pm, Fri. 3-7 pm and Sat. 10-1pm.
