After the Rain
April 3 – 22, 2013
Sheet Harbour photographer Connie Publicover illuminates the corridor gallery with a series of water drop images from April 3 – 22, 2013. Publicover describes the exhibition as it relates to her practice:
This body of work tries to capture the beauty of rain drops kissed by those first rays of sunlight. I can’t help but wonder at how a rain drop can hold such beauty. Perhaps it is the artist in me but the closer I look the more amazing the rain drops become. It is my hope that this body of work has captured some of the peace and joy that I as the photographer felt on this beautiful morning. This body of work was professionally printed on high quality metallic photographic paper. The metallic sheen of the archival paper helps to bring out the natural beauty of these water drops. These small worlds are amazing, they are ever changing and always a challenge to capture.
Connie Publicover is a retired hairdresser living near Sheet Harbour, Nova Scotia. Photography came into her life as a result of prolonged health issues. She is mostly self taught and has spent 6 years developing her water drop photography. Her images are captured in camera and are not changed digitally. She loves capturing a moment in time that is so pure and present but usually never seen with the naked eye. Her work has been featured in Saltscapes magazine and was selected to be exhibited by Kodak in Times Square, NYC. She has exhibited her work throughout Atlantic Canada and the United States, having recently exhibited this body of work at GGGallery in Charlottetown, PEI.
