Kathy Shapiro’s photograph, Red Light Changing, has been selected for the upcoming Abstract Expressions exhibition at The PhotoPlace Gallery in Vermont. The juror for this show is Carl Chiarenza.

According to Chiarenza:

Jurying the work submitted for Abstract Expressions was difficult because too many photographs were winners.  Too many had to be cut to reach 75; and no easier was the task of separating the 75 into groups of 40 and 35. As difficult as it was, it was also rewarding. While all photographs (and music, and the other arts) are both abstractions and expressions, those that draw us away from referential objects in the world toward stimulating our imaginations hold and exercise our own creativity. Such experiences are as unique as are the artists’ gifts. Thank you participants for giving us a moving, wide-ranging set of emotional, mental and physical experiences! And, thank you for reminding us that abstraction and expression are not limited to a brief moment in history.


This show runs: May 15th – June 9th, 2012


PhotoPlace Gallery is located at 3 Park Street in Middlebury, Vermont, just a few doors down from the Sheldon Museum in the center of town.
Hours: Tues. – Fri. 11-4, Sat. 10-2 or by appointment
