OWL Art Gallery- Journey to a Magical Cloud Forest- A Quiet Place- Photographs by Sue Kennedy

The Oliver Wolcott Library is delighted to exhibit photographs by Sue Kennedy in the art gallery from March 3, 2014 through April 25, 2014. The opening reception is on Thursday, March 6, 2014 from 5:00-7:00 p.m.

PRLog - Feb. 18, 2014 - LITCHFIELD, Conn. -- Twenty years ago Sue Kennedy was in Texas working on a Kinesiology and Adapted Physical Education PhD.  If anyone had told her that photographing and raising orchids was what she would be doing today, she wouldn’t have believed them.  She is here to share her journey, and hopes you will smile, find joy, and most of all, peace from these images of her quiet and powerful children of the Magical Cloud Forest.

Sue’s father was a pediatrician in the Torrington/Litchfield area, but he always had a second great passion...orchids.  Before medical school he earned a PhD in Botany from Cornell and dreamed of discovering and naming a new orchid.  After retiring from medicine and armed with a U.S. Department of Agriculture permit, he and his wife took many collecting excursions including the Amazon, Peru, Ecuador, Mexico,Venezuela, Costa Rica, and Nicaragua.  Plants were brought home, potted or mounted, and treasured in his “quiet place,” the greenhouse he had built.

When her father passed away and her mother became ill, Sue was forced with a dilemma - let the orchids die, sell them off or give it a go.  She dove in and never looked back.  With each blossom she began to see and photograph the unique character of each plant.  She shared her images with friends and would see their eyes light up with a kind of childish wonder, peace and joy.  Sue continues to capture how light is reflected and penetrates; how it enlightens; how each bloom is a fascination.

In the gallery: March 3- April 25. Reception- Thursday, March 6, from 5:00-7:00 p.m. at the Oliver Wolcott Library, 160 South Street, Litchfield, CT. 06759. 860-567-8030. www.owlibrary.org
