Illuminated: A Photographic Essay of Holiday Lights

For a slight chance of pace—and media—three of my photographs will be exhibited as part of this fun upcoming show.

Each year, the cold and dark of the winter season is brightened by lights of celebration. From quiet displays commemorating religious celebrations to grand designs that flood the senses, these lights invite us to contemplate and be cheered as we make our way through short days and long months. This exhibition will be juried by the staff of the Somerville Arts Council, who are holiday light experts in their own right.

While primarily a painter and printmaker, I do as well like to try my hand at photography from time to time. My household works every year to bring a little light and warmth into the winter with our tropical lights. As a Somerville resident for over 25 years, I come honestly by my desire to light up the whole street! As a working artist for that long as well, I come similarly to my desire to document each year’s installation.
