Monday, July 27, beginning at 7 pm, Suzanne Rose will give a photography presentation at the Door County Art League (DCAL) monthly meeting, which will be at the Gibraltar Fire Department meeting room, 3496 County Road F in Fish Creek. Guests are welcome as she discusses her residency at the Paine Art Center & Gardens in Oshkosh.
Rose, a fine art black and white photographer since 1988, describes herself as a mindful minimalist. Her main subjects are ephemeral moments, places of personal meaning, and architecture, historic and otherwise. She does extensive research on her thematic projects before making her first image.
When asked about her photographic beginnings, Rose says, “My grandma entrusted me with her camera at the age of four. I’ve rarely been without one since.”
Rose was educated at the School of the Art Institute in Chicago. She has received several grants from the Peninsula Arts Association/Wisconsin Arts Board, was the first individual artist to be given the Fred Alley Visionary Award, and also was the recipient of a Fellowship from the NFAA (National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts).
Rose’s online journals of her experience and images can be found at thepaine.org/artist-in-res/index.htm. Her Web site is http://www.suzannerosephotography.com. She currently has two exhibitions running in Oshkosh through October 11, “Meditations on Oshkosh: a photographer’s experience in-residence” and “Suzanne Rose: Portrait of a Community.”
