'TROIS VISAGES DE FLEURS' OPENING
Pittsfield, 5 p.m.
Barbara Ellison has been fortunate to be able to combine five loves – photography, art, gardening, travel and teaching – into her work. While a Pro-Market Representative for Canon USA for 26 years, she traveled throughout the United States, lecturing and instructing on various photographic topics such as botanical and macro photography, printing and alternative processes. Her upcoming show at the BINGO! Gallery located in Shire City Sanctuary’s makerspace will showcase these life long passions. Through three different methods of presentation, you will see the unique features of the botanical portrait, from the traditional print to the pastel enhanced work, and finally the alternative art paper prints. Each group is unique in its emphasis of maintaining the theme of the simple flower. Shire City Sanctuary at 40 Melville St. will be hosting an opening reception with music and refreshments.
