Press release

The Arts Council of Greater New Haven presents Spectra 2010 in the Sumner McKnight Crosby Jr. Gallery, at 70 Audubon St., 2nd floor. The exhibition will be on display Fri., Jan. 22 through Fri., March 19. An artists’ reception is scheduled for Fri., Jan. 22, from 5—7 p.m. The public is invited to attend.

Spectra 2010 is the annual members show of the Photo Arts Collective, an Arts Council program whose mission is to cultivate and support a community of individuals who share an interest in photography, through workshops, lectures, exhibitions, portfolio reviews, group critiques, and special events.

Spectra 2010 includes photographs by James Ayers, Penny Cook, Rod Cook, Terry Dagradi, Matthew Garrett, Kenneth Hanson, Sharon Hirsch, Art Johnson, Rob Lisak, Gillian Marshall, Roy Money, Maryann Ott, David Ottenstein, Beverly Peterson Stearns, and Marjorie Wolfe.

Ott, who sits on the Photo Arts Collective’s Steering Committee, said Spectra 2010 features “more black and white than color,” and is “light and easy on the eye.”

Penny Cook, who organizes the annual show, said this year’s exhibition is highlighted by a “surprising number of members showing new work,” and, “as a result of the strength of this work, many will have more than one piece represented.”

Open to Arts Council members, the Photo Arts Collective meets the first Thursday of each month at the Kehler Liddell Gallery, 873 Whalley Ave., New Haven.
