On view in the Woodland Gallery through October 27th
Free opening reception on Thursday, July 25th from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the Woodland Gallery
at Chesterwood, 4 Williamsville Road, Stockbridge, Mass.
For 12 months Margaret Moulton explored the woods at Chesterwood as an Artist-in-Residence. “Much like Daniel Chester French depended on natural light to highlight the subtleties of his sculpture, my photographic exploration of Chesterwood became a search for light and its balance with shadow,” states Moulton, “I saw in black and white – aware of how the woodlands looked like an abstract drawing or a collage of leaves and twigs.”
The photographs for Woodland Light were made with a medium format camera, on black and white negative film, printed in Moulton’s own darkroom. Moulton’s photographs are held in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, NYC, the San Francisco Museum of Art, the Hudson River Museum, and other private collections. Her work was also included in Pictures by Women: A History of Modern Photography, at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
