Quincy resident Barbara Newman to be featured in Milton Public Library’s Wotiz Gallery
Wotiz Gallery to show “Lighting the Landscape” exhibit
In January 2019, there will be a photography exhibit on display in the Wotiz Gallery of the Milton Public Library by Quincy resident Barbara Newman. These beautiful color landscapes were mostly taken at night and cover a very wide geographic area, which includes many fascinating places around the world. This is what the photographer says about her work: “As the world around us gets more crowded and noisy, I find myself drawn to photographing the beautiful and peaceful landscape that surrounds us. Spending hours with my camera and tripod photographing the Northern Lights, Milky Way, or a sunrise, never ceases to inspire me. I hope it does the same for those who come to see the photographs.” Ms. Newman has also exhibited at the Thomas Crane Library in Quincy, at the Harvard Science Center Atrium in Cambridge, the Harvard Graduate School of Education in Cambridge, and more. She has spent most of her life taking art classes, working with crafts and taking travel photographs. She switched from Film to Digital photography and this transition really came together for her on a trip to Iceland to photograph the Northern Lights. This was a magical experience and she wants to keep that feeling of magic alive. She continues to take pictures also at National Parks like Arches National Park in Utah or the simplicity of the fog along the Oregon coast. To see more of her work, go to her website: https://barbaranewman.smugmug.com/ There will be a free and open reception held in the Wotiz Gallery on Thursday, January 17th from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. where you can meet Barbara in person and view her lovely work.
