An exhibit of flowers in the garden and as still life compositions printed on canvas photographed by Georgia Sheron will be on exhibit in the Gloria Cachion Gallery in the Southbury Public Library from September 1 through September 28. The library is located at 100 Poverty Rd. Southbury, CT, 203-262-0626.
Ms. Sheron's work of local farmer John Ludorf is on permanent display throughout the library as part of a grant from the Hume Collection. This photo documentary of Mr. Ludorf received an Individual Artist's Grant from the Connecticut Commission of the Arts. Her book "Uncle John A True Yankee Farmer" was published and distributed through University of New England Press and Bauham Publishing of New Hampshire. The new floral images in color and black and white will be the main focus of the September exhibit from a body of work done over the past 3 years. Many are new images not exhibited previously.
Ms. Sheron was awarded a certificate for Master Photographic Craftsman by the Professional Photographers of America, an international organization with members in 13 countries globally. Her work has been published in Yankee Magazine, Vermont Life, Country Gentlemen Magazine, Connecticut Magazine, the Sunday New York Times Connecticut section, and several Random House book covers. Images by Ms. Sheron are in the collections of writer Ann Beattie, Jack and Connie Hume, Smilow Cancer Center at Yale, the Mattatuck Museum and Ceasar Pelli. Ms. Sheron operated a private portrait studio at the Pin Shop Gallery in Oakville from 1995 to 2012. She has photographed in Italy, France, St. Croix and Monhegan Island in Maine.
