Press release from The Gallery at Still River Editions

What do you get when you challenge eighteen professional photographers to exhibit an image, with only one word as guideline: "ORANGE?"

The answer will be on the walls at Orange: Connecticut ASMP Members' Exhibition at The Gallery at Still River Editions in Danbury, Connecticut, from Jan. 3 through Feb. 28, 2013. An opening reception with the photographers takes place on Sat., Jan. 12, from 4—6 p.m., and is free and open to the public.

The eighteen pieces of fine art photography shown are from the Connecticut chapter of the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP), the leading trade association for professional photographers. Connecticut's chapter of the ASMP has a membership of around 100 photographers at all stages of their careers, and offers programming including speakers, seminars, and ongoing small groups that promote business and community within the profession.

Gale Zucker, a commercial and editorial location photographer based in Branford who is also a board member of CT ASMP, co-chaired the exhibit event with chapter Vice President Jane Shauck, of West Hartford. Zucker said of the exhibit, "Like most ASMP members, I create photography to communicate a client's message. This was a fun break from business—a busman's holiday, really—to create images for exhibit as fine art."

The photographers participating are: Nikki Alekson (Wethersfield, Web), Rich Pomerantz (Washington Depot, Web), Christine Chiocchio (Branford, Web), Jim Fiora (Branford, Web), Richard Freeda (Stamford, Web), Carl Vernlund (Berlin, Web), Liz Calvi (West Hartford, Web), Edwina Stevenson (Branford, Web), Donna Callighan (Stamford, Web), Christopher Beauchamp (West Haven, Web), Gale Zucker (Branford), Michael Garner (Middletown, Web), Ronald L. Glassman (Stamford, Web), Barry Hyman (Westport, Web), Jane Shauck (West Hartford), Phil Nelson (Stamford, Web), Peter Wnek (Meriden, Web), and Pam Rouleau (Wilton, Web).

When asked, "Why orange?," Zucker replied, "We wanted a theme that was broad enough to be interpreted in many ways. With January being a month of cold blue light, we went to the other end of the spectrum, and chose orange."
