Mothers' Rest at Sunset, Carson Beach, South Boston
BOSTON - July 25, 2016- PRLog -- The South Boston Public Library will spotlight the work of award-winning West Roxbury photographer Nancy Katz during the month of August. The theme of her work is titled "Water Around Us with a Painterly Eye". The exhibit is free and open to the public.
Ms. Katz's work may be viewed during normal library hours: Monday 12 p.m.- 8 p.m., Tuesday and Wednesday 10 a.m. 6 p.m., Thursday 12 p.m.- 8 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. 5.p.m.
Ms. Katz, originally from Dorchester, says, "Living once again in Boston after 35 years away, I am drawn to the ocean and all water. The city beaches are dramatically more attractive now. Other beaches, like Gloucester, Plum Island, Duxbury, Marshfield, Westport and more, are great for walking and shooting year 'round. Some are filled with memories while at others I create new ones through photographs, often using my iPhone 6 along with my Canon 5D Mark II.
"Through this smartphone photo exhibit, I want to show the painterly feelings water generates in me, and how I am able to express them photographically through the freedom of shooting with my iPhone 6 and editing with a mobile app."
In the exhibit, Ms. Katz includes a total of 24 images, all but one from Massachusetts, including several from South Boston and Dorchester Bay's scenic Carson Beach as well as Jamaica Pond, Nantasket Beach, Concord, Duxbury, Onset and more.
