Opening reception for “To Be Real: Photographs by Shona Curtis”
The Gallery at Still River Editions
Apr. 8, 2017, 02:00 am
Free opening reception with refreshments and conversation with the artist. “To Be Real” is a solo exhibition of black and white portraits by photographer Shona Curtis of New Preston, Connecticut. Curtis is also a psychotherapist who practices in Brookfield, and her work in that field informs her photography.
In addition to the portraits she makes of others are prints from a project called “SeeingSelf” in which she photographed herself for a year and a day during a period of dramatic personal change. Curtis also turned the images into a morphed video that will be viewable in the gallery that shows the subtle changes in expression and mood from day to day.
This exhibit includes work first shown at the Charter Oak Cultural Center in Hartford, Connecticut earlier in 2017.
The Gallery at Still River Editions is located at 128 East Liberty St., Danbury, CT. The exhibit continues through June 2 during regular gallery hours 8:30 am – 5 pm Monday through Friday. Closed Memorial Day. Free.
