We have an Artist Gallery Conversation each and every Sunday at 3:00 pm preceded and followed by a wine and local crafted cheese reception. Sometimes when there is no scheduled artist, I substitute conversing on “How to Collect Fine Art prints.” We have portfolios of Julius Lester’s artwork and often out they come to delight all especially me.

Recently during a monthly visit to VCP, Brattleboro, VT, I was smitten with an artwork on exhibit. Walked around the room twice to be sure then shared my enthusiasm with Gallery director Joshua Farr. I invested in it promptly. I love investing in fine art, a personal pleasure even before I opened The Gallery nearly 15 years ago. This artwork appealed to my senses and invited me to play in the image. The more I instruct photography, the more I hear frustrations from photographers that their images do not look the way they wish plus do not say what they want them to say. I talked to the artist, Amy Rindskopf from Winchester, MA. Amy expressed satisfaction with her image. Simple. No embellishments necessary. It’s truly a personal creation. Her vision and intent are well realized here.

Photography is an art not simply a technical pursuit. Amy proves it is a creative and expressive pursuit. She understood what she wanted to say and most importantly how she wanted to say it. That’s vision not merely technical competence. (My new investment is lower right. It remains on exhibit through March 27…then it joins my diverse collection.)
