Photographing Place:  Winter Photography Workshop | deCordova Sculpture Park, Lincoln, MA
Saturday, February 24, 10 am - 12 pm

Winter offers all the ingredients for making inspirational images, along with certain challenges that
help strengthen the eye and photographic skill.  In this workshop, we'll open our attention to the nuances of light and shadow, form and pattern, and the interplay of each moment and the season's qualities with uniqueness of the landscape and sculptures in the park.

The workshop will be facilitated by photographer and naturalist, Cherrie Corey, who lived in the heart of Thoreau country for the last forty years and has chronicled the beauty, moods, and rhythms of its landscapes in thousands of photographic images.  This program will build on a delightfully successful workshop that Cherrie led during a summer "monsoon" last year, which opened participants to revelations of perception, challenges of the season, and a renewed sense of adventure and resilience with their cameras.

No photography experience necessary.  Participants use their own equipment of any type (smart phones, digital, or film cameras are all ok.)

Savoring Concord's Botanical Legacy 
Concord Free Public Library, 129 Main St., Concord, MA
Friday, April 13, 7 pm

Concord's wild flora holds an incomparable place in history for the detail of its study and the
memorable impressions it has made in the hearts and minds of readers, scholars, naturalists, and scientists around the world.  Thoreau's expansive and precise chronicles of Concord's plant life inspired more than a century and a half of further botanical exploration and documentation, artistic and literary renderings, and an enduring public interest in long saunterings through Concord's landscapes to commune with its plants and immerse in a deeply familiar sensibility of place.

Longtime Concord resident, naturalist, and photographer, Cherrie Corey, has been an intimate student, active field consultant, and popular teacher of Concord's flora and landscape for many years. Her field programs, website, and photographic presentations have introduced thousands to the plants and wild places that form the essence of this historic town.  With her beautiful photographs and intimate knowledge, Cherrie will take us on a botanical stroll through time and place to meet Concord's floral residents (indigenous and introduced) and some of the key people who have helped to keep this legacy alive and flourishing.

Free and open to the public, but please register so the library can plan chair set-up, Registration Link.
