March’s Art Exhibit “Images Within: Seeing Beyond the Usual”, brought to you by Swarthmore Friends of the Arts, presents digital photography by photographer Betty Wallace.
An exhibition of original digital prints by Ms. Wallace will be on display from March 3rd through April 1st at Swarthmore Borough Hall, 121 Park Avenue. The public is invited to the artist’s opening reception on Friday, March 3rd, from 5-7pm. Both the exhibit and the reception are free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
Despite a fondness for the visual arts, Betty Wallace says that from an early age, she showed a remarkable artistic ineptitude in all media including film. That changed when she and her husband bought their first digital cameras in 2001. “Although I began taking the usual landscape images, I soon started seeing with new depth. I found embedded images emerging as I gazed at the landscape around me. One of the first was of a path through a starlit orchard that emerged at the sandy bottom of an empty swimming pool. I soon saw such images everywhere. My camera replaced my clumsy hands recording the glimpses I see in my mind’s eye but had previously lacked a means of expressing. For me, these prints are a form of visual ‘haiku’— a simple expression of a reflective moment in the ‘now’.”
The exhibit is free and open to the public. Exhibit hours are M-Th 9am – 8pm, Fri 10am – 7pm, Sat 10am – 3pm, Sun 1 – 5pm.
The exhibit is sponsored by Swarthmore Friends of the Arts.
