Later this week I’ll be making a trip back to Minnesota where I attended graduate school at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul. For many years while I worked on my Masters in Art History, I assisted with planning and hanging quite a few exhibitions for the Art History Department. The tables have been turned, however, and I am honored to be sharing with you all that some of the photographs I’ve taken on the Amalfi Coast have been included in the exhibit The Vision Changes – The Eye Remembers at the University of St. Thomas. The exhibit opens this Friday, March 4th, and runs through May 23rd.
It was exciting to think about an exhibition from the artist’s point of view rather than as a curator, and I loved the challenge of selecting photos that embodied this theme of visual change and memory. You’ll spot one of my photographs of Amalfi in the poster above, and others selected for the exhibit include scenes from Cetara, Amafi and photos taken before and after the flood in Atrani last September.
Next week I’ll share more photos from the opening reception and the exhibit. I’m looking forward to seeing my good friends in the Twin Cities this week! Many thanks to the Art History Department at St. Thomas for including my photographs in this beautiful exhibition!
