Pelkey Selected for Art Educators Show at Windsor Art Center
Posted on: 1/25/2016
Watkinson School is proud to announce that Windsor resident Carolyn Pelkey, chair of Watkinson’s art department, was chosen to be one of six art educators in the state of Connecticut to have her work displayed at the Windsor Art Center from January 17th– February 27th.
Pelkey has five photographs displayed in the show. According to her, the photographs displayed investigate the concept of light and composition in natural settings. She took the photos in the canyon lands in Page, AZ and in Acadia Park, ME.
“The work I am currently focused on is inspired by formal ‘straight’ photography where the purpose is to capture views of a scene that everyone could walk by but may not ‘see’”, Pelkey explained, “Composition and lighting are key to my work and those are the same concepts that I try to instill in my art students.”
Pelkey submitted her work to the jury and was notified of her acceptance in December. She will also be part of a panel discussion on February 13th from 2:00p.m. – 3:00p.m. at the art center.
“I am happy to show (my work) alongside other well-respected educators in Connecticut and feel proud to have been so well received,” Pelkey said.
