Debut Exhibit Features Fresh Perspectives

Museum Hours: Monday - Saturday 10 AM to 5 PM, Sundays Noon to 5 PM

In her debut exhibit, Stephanie Oates demonstrates an instinct for color and form that lends her photographs an intensity and energy that is scarcely contained by their frames. Oates follows in the tradition of Connecticut Valley art stretching back over two centuries. But her fresh vision of familiar surroundings startles the viewer with images bursting with light and color. Like all art forms, Oates' photography distills experience into primary elements. The natural and built landscapes provide a vivid palette for the formal structure of her compositions. A field of flowers becomes an abstraction of contrasting hues. A steeple, a barn, a garden are compressed into compact planes. Through Stephanie Oates' lens, our way of seeing is enhanced and enlarged. This exhibit marks the beginning of a promising career and, for the first time, brings the work of a very talented observer together for all of us to experience.
