Art Reception for Marianne Benoir

"A Retrospective: Then Through Now," a solo show by South Royalton, Vt., photographer Marianne Benoir, will be on display at the Library from Nov. 6, 2018, until Jan. 7, 2019.

The show is a retrospective look at Benoir's work. There will be color as well as black and white images of flora, fauna, places, things and people. This only scratches the surface of the subject matter which she has photographed and wishes to share with others. Visitors are bound to recognize some things that are familiar and will be intrigued by something new. Photo cards will be on sale during the show. 

Artist's statement:

While having spent a good deal of time in New England, I have also lived and traveled elsewhere. Photos became important at an early age. Sifting through photos with my grandmother and hearing the connected stories helped me to feel a part of something larger. Thus my foray into photography began. Summer camp, siblings, sunsets and pets all gained my attention. These early photos however, were more for memory sake. When I got my first digital camera, the same one I use today, there was suddenly a whole new world of possibilities. Now, I was free to experiment with light and subject in a way I had not before.
