Photographer Linda Connor speaking tonight in Woodstock, 8pm

If you've ever dreamed of spending the evening with Linda Connor, your dreams are coming true this evening courtesy of the Center of Photography at Woodstock. CPW is hosting "An evening with Linda Connor" in which the photographer will show and speak about her work.
Linda Connor has taught at the San Francisco Art Institute for over 35 years. The most consistent element in Connor’s work is the making of photographs that are iconic and that honor her subject. Using tools reminiscent of 19th century landscape photography, Connor’s images reflect the poetry and mystery of place and contemplate the relationship of the sacred to the natural world.

Connor’s work has been internationally exhibited at venues including San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Center for Creative Photography in Tucson, National Gallery of Art, Haines Gallery and Paul Kopeikin Gallery.

Her photographs are published in seven monographs including "On the Music of the Spheres", "Spiral Journey", and most recently "Odyssey" by Chronicle Books.

Linda is the recipient of three National Endowment for the Arts grants, as well as a Guggenheim Fellowship, and her work is included in collections at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Modern Art, the George Eastman House, the Getty, and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
Tonight's talk starts at 8pm. Admission is $7/$5 for members. CPW is located at 59 Tinker St in Woodstock.
CPW's next artist talk will take place on June 27 with Elinor Carucci.
