Gloria Cachion Art Gallery

Current Exhibit

Judith Secco

Wednesday, November 4 - Tuesday, December 29

Judith is a native of Connecticut’s northwest corner and an avid self-taught photographer. Her love of photography began with an in-home darkroom focusing mainly on black and white images which later developed into an interest in digital photography. She has experimented with and developed her own technique in photo editing using layers, textures and composites of more than one photo. Through post processing, her images take on a unique quality as she enhances the beauty of her subject with an artistic eye, bringing nature to life.

Shooting a variety of subjects, Judith’s work finds its balance between photography and fine art. She has won numerous awards for her work which has been shown throughout New England. All framed photographs are printed on an Epson 5000 professional printer using archival inks and paper. Most frames are created by Judith’s husband, James, adding a beautiful finishing touch to each piece.

The exhibit will be a mix of subject matter, including Connecticut farms, barns, landscapes, flowers, animals, and still life.  The exhibit will be open during regular library hours which are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9:30am to 4:30pm, Tuesday and Thursday 9:30am to 6:30pm, and Saturdays 9:30am-4:00pm. The exhibit will also be online too as a virtual gallery.

Gloria Cachion Art Gallery and Ludorf Collection

The Gloria Cachion Art Gallery, adjacent to the lobby, is an open two-story area along with the Brown Conference Room that showcases in-house and online exhibitions. It is available principally for local artists on a monthly rotation to present their work.

The Gallery was dedicated in May 2011 featuring the "Uncle John" Ludorf Collection photographed by Georgia Sheron.  This collection donated by Connie and Jack Hume is on display throughout the library as part of its permanent collection.
