LEE PAINE – WWW.LEEPAINEFINEPHOTOGRAPHY.COM

Lee is a professional photographer, writer, and singer. Her column “Focus on Photos”, ran in the Greenwich Time for 20 years and in the Greenwich Citizen for about 5 years until Hearst publications cancelled all paid correspondents and closed the Citizen.

Lee teaches photography privately and has taught photography for Greenwich Continuing Education and the YWCA. She has lectured on photography for many organizations including the Whitney Museum, the Bruce Museum, the Greenwich Arts Council, the Greenwich Library, the Stamford Art Association, and the Stamford Photography Club, among others.

In October, Lee will be exhibiting a new group of her large scale, fine art cell phone photographs on canvas, these with paint. She will have a solo show called “The Emotional Life of Flowers: Dahlias and Friends” at the Garden Education Center of Greenwich, 130 Bible Street, Cos Cob, for the month of October, closing on October 27th, available for viewing on weekdays from 9 – 4 by calling ahead to the center to check on gallery availability. She also had several pieces without paint in a show called “A Common Thread: Women Artists Changing the Rules and Exploring new Horizons” — an international show at the Bendheim Gallery in Greenwich In February and March, 2015, that featured 12 trendsetting women in different disciplines, each from a different country. Lee represented the USA.

 

MIGGS BURROUGHS

Miggs ​has been an artist, photographer and graphic designer since he was 20 and, at age 26, was the youngest person ever to be chosen to
design a Commemorative U. S. Postage Stamp. Shortly thereafter he was commissioned to illustrate several covers for TIME Magazine, one of which resides in the Smithsonian Institution.

Miggs has designed hundreds of award-winning logos, websites and print material for global companies, as well as for local non-profit organizations. His acclaimed work with cutting-edge lenticular imagery has been exhibited in several one-man shows and is held in many private collections. “Tunnel Vision”, his permanent lenticular installation in downtown Westport has been met with great acclaim, and a visit by the Governor.

A graduate of the Carnegie-Mellon University Drama Dept, Miggs has taught graphic design at Fairfield University and UCONN. He is a founding member of the Westport Artists’ Collective at the Westport Arts Center, and is the first Artist in Residence at the Westport Library.  www.miggsblenticular.com

“I am intrigued by all the changes and transitions – large and small, real and imagined – that are part of our daily lives.  The lenticular medium allows me to explore these journeys through time, space and emotions, in a fresh and somewhat cinematic way. When you walk by one of these “photos” hanging on a wall, one image will magically change to another,  and you will be enlisted as a collaborator, controlling the speed, sequence, and ultimately, the impact of what you are seeing. With art, as in life, the experience will only be as meaningful as the truth that you are willing to bring to the illusion that appears before you.”

 

DEBORAH BOHREN

Ever since my father put a camera in my hands when I was five, I look through a camera’s lens and move more slowly, breathe more deeply and truly see the world around me. I capture the intersection and interplay of color, light and line of every day things to tell a story of what has been, what is, or what will–or can–be. I left the corporate world in 2012 after a 30 year career in corporate communications  to finally pursue photography full-time.

Raised on film and in a darkroom, I expose and frame through the lens as with film even though I now shoot digital. I believe photographs are the art and science of painting with light regardless if the negative is glass plate, celluloid or a SD card. For me, photography doesn’t end with the click of the shutter but rather with personally producing archival prints.

Each picture I take captures a moment in time, never to be repeated yet destined to exist beyond the moment. Byond bridging time and space, I hope my images spark individual memories and universal emotions for those who see them.
