705 North Second Street
The Framemaker proudly presents photography by Mitzi Cross and Malcolm Glass’ exhibit, titled “Shadows of the Light Body,”
Cross and Glass have shown their work in numerous galleries and juried exhibitions in the mid-south.
The exhibition of portraits and figure studies of women focuses on alternative photographic processes such as solarizations, hand-colored photographs, and bromoil prints. Also featured is a series of works that emulate well-known paintings. Most of the photographs in the exhibit are one-of-a-kind works.
Beverly states, “I believe there is Beauty all around us but the key to capturing it is learning how to feel it. Only then can something become more than just a photograph. It is a part of history that will remain for all to see. There is a story to be told in everything.” Stop by the Creative corner at Hodgepodge to meet this talented photographer/artist.
Ms. O’Neill is an art teacher at Rossview Elementary School. She works in many different types of media, including oil, acrylic, illustration, collage, origami, clay, & jewelry and her current work has been with collage & mixed media painting with at times incorporating origami.
Kristina Waters is professional cook who has cooking for 20 years now, the last 8 or so as a professional. Ms. Waters was taught by her mother and her mother’s mother the basics of food, meal and menu planning, and how to shop for the best food, at the best prices. As she became an adult, she was amazed that she could work, as a cook, and that people found value in what she had to offer and wants to pass these same skills on to others!
New South Coffee
We are two sisters who love photography, antiques and creating things. We originally took up photography in school. Then kids came along with ball games, science projects and homework. But now all our kids are out of school, some with families of their own and others away at college, and we both rediscovered our love of taking photographs. As we shared them with each other we noticed that while we could be taking pictures of the same thing, our pictures did not look the same. Each one of us had a unique perspective that came through each photograph!
