Southbury resident Jim Sidway will mount his first public exhibition of his photographic works in the Gloria Cachion Gallery at the Southbury Public Library during the month of December. The dates are December 1, 2017 to December 28, 2017. The theme of the display will be Autumn into Winter and will feature images taken in late fall through the winter months. The library is located at 100 Poverty Rd. Southbury, CT, 203-262-0626.
Jim’s interest in photography began as a child after watching a Walt Disney’s episode in which a young boy with a simple box camera taught a variety of basic techniques anyone could use to produce interesting photographs. Jim got his first Brownie soon after and later graduated to a Kodak Retina III 35mm – his first ‘real’ camera – and then on to Nikon 35mm film SLR gear and now shoots with Canon digital SLR equipment.
Due to his love of nature and the outdoors Jim’s primary focus was, and continues to be, landscapes. He has also ventured into animal and bird photography. The exhibit will be open during regular library hours which are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9:30am to 5:30pm, Tuesday and Thursday from 9:30am to 9:00pm. Saturday 9:30am to 4:00pm and Sunday 12:00pm to 5:00pm.
