Leonore Alaniz inks foliage and direct imprints it onto paper and cloth. Each imprint, be it miniscule or majestic in size, is executed with sensitive dexterity. Throughout human history, and particularly since the Renaissance, Nature Printing has contributed to Art and Science. As a member of the Nature Printing Society, Leonore lectures and leads hands-on workshops for youth and adults.
Tracey Eller, a portrait photographer based in Easthampton, is interested in exploring themes to tell a story. She has collaborated with various artists to transform subject and space. Using chalk art as backdrop and setting, the subjects meld into the scene and become part of the tale. Props and/or environment play a role in her other portraits to help us see another side of the subject. Her work has been featured in Utne reader, Organic Spa Magazine, LA Yoga, Huffington Post among others.
Fred LeBlanc has worked as a professional commercial, corporate and editorial photographer for over thirty years. His award winning photographs have been exhibited in museums, libraries, galleries and juried art shows. His editorial images regularly appear in regional and national publications. Fred is a member of the Springfield Photographic Society and has presented to camera clubs throughout New England.
