Photography At Trichet Gallery

LITCHFIELD — The Marie Louise Trichet Gallery at Wisdom House is hosting the work of fine art photographer John Talbert of Goodyear, Ariz., as its first exhibition for 2010.

Mr Talbert, who grew up in Phoenix, Ariz., had his love of photography sparked by a gift of Ansel Adams’ portfolios. These, plus his own memories of the southwest, fueled the fire for his future passion.

He had his first exhibit in 1988 and eventually taught himself, “moving,” as he says, “from using a 35 mm and medium format cameras to the 4x5 view camera.” He notes that his creativity “evolved from the grand Western Landscapes to the smaller and simpler parts of the views to be found everywhere and sometimes right under foot.”

Upon returning from serving in the Army in Vietnam, he began working in the drywall construction industry in Phoenix, but never lost his passion for photography.

MLT Gallery hours are Monday through Saturday, 10 am to 4 pm. This exhibit will run through April 17.

The main entrance for Wisdom House and its gallery are at 229 East Litchfield Road. For further information, call Wisdom House at 860-567-3163 or visit                        www.WisdomHouse.org.
