Karen Guay: Wanderings, thru April 2.
Karen is a contemplative photographer who enjoys wandering with her camera with the aim of being completely open and present to the moment. This past summer she and her husband were grateful to spend two weeks at an Artist-in- Residency, Bordeneuve Retreat, in the Midi Pyrenees region of France. Some of the images in ‘Wanderings’ are from that stay, as well as, time spent in Paris. Others are from previous travels along with some closer to home in ‘the land of pleasant living.’
Maryland Federation of Art presents rotating national juried exhibitions, member juried exhibitions, and non-juried opportunities for local artists. MFA is the oldest artist-run organization in Maryland, dedicated to expanding artistic expression and appreciation. Our 550 members organize 20 to 25 juried and non-juried exhibitions each year.
