Norwalk, CT - A new collection of photographer Karen Spencer’s work, will be on exhibit at the Norwalk Public Library, in the Main Reading area, from August 12– September 30. An opening reception will be held on Sunday, August 12, from 3 – 5 p.m.
This will mark the tenth year that Karen Spencer has lived for half the year in Mexico, in an area near Guadalajara known as Lake Chapala, the largest lake in Mexico. This popular expat retirement haven - at 5,000 feet altitude – is known for its near-perfect year round weather. It has become a blossoming art center with an active Arts Society and many galleries and shows at which Spencer has exhibited.
During her travels abroad, Spencer has found that the creativity in photography offers a way to capture unique moments in time. In the village of Ajijic, she has been captivated by the symphony of colors that bombard the senses at every turn, and has tried to bring forth the joy and wonder so specific to this area of Mexico. This exhibit includes images from France, and Canada as well as Mexico.
All images in this exhibit are for sale, with a portion of the proceeds donated to the library.
Spencer has been experimenting with different printing surfaces, and her new show includes works on fabric, aluminum and shower curtains (yes, shower curtains), as well as traditional paper prints.
Born, raised and schooled in New York City, Spencer has lived in Norwalk for 35 years, and has served on the Norwalk Zoning Commission for six years. She has enjoyed an extensive career as a graphic designer and an art director in publishing, advertising and promotion in New York, New Orleans and Connecticut, and with her own company Spencer Graphics.
