Art Opening

Land & Sky: A Photography and Printmaking Exhibition
Opening Reception 5-7 PM

Artists Wendy Costa and Sally Frank each draw inspiration from the natural world. They found it fitting to share their artistic vision in a collaborate show.

Wendy Costa is inspired and energized daily by the natural world. She uses infrared photography, with its unusual reading of light and shadow, to bring attention to land, water, clouds and skies. With our climate in peril, Costa feels especially passionate about sharing this powerful vision of nature.

With a BFA from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and an MFA from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Ms. Costa has dedicated her life to the study, teaching, and practice of artistic expression.

She has shown her work in exhibits across the country, and in 2018 one of her photographs was awarded first prize in a themed juried exhibit “Water” at Indian Mountain School, in Lakeville, CT.

Sally Frank is a printmaker who is inspired by closing observing and connecting with the natural world. Her work channels the vibrant life that flow through the forests, hills, rivers, and lakes that make up 29% of our planet.
She uses a variety of printmaking techniques to create etchings, woodcuts, monotypes and lithographs. In her intaglios, she balances the beauty of native woods and landscapes with a sense of impending danger posed by a changing climate.

Sally began making prints while attending Simon’s Rock College in Great Barrington, MA, and later earned a master’s degree in printmaking from C.W. Post College in New York. Over the last 40 years, her work has been exhibited in galleries across New York, Connecticut, Maryland, and New Mexico.
