Optical Shards, a solo exhibit of Donna Tramontozzi’s lyrical reflections on reflections, both literal and figurative, will be on view through August 27th, 2017, running concurrently with the gallery’s group show “Eyes of Western Mass.” There will be a reception for both shows on Friday, July 14th, 2017 from 6:00 – 8:00pm.
During the rush of everyday life, one forgets about the visual beauty that light creates. Donna Tramontozzi’s photographs are a representation of those moments that disappear.
Optical Shards by Donna Tramontozzi, is featured in the Griffin Museum @ Colson Gallery in Easthampton, MA from June 9, 2017 through August 27, 2017. The gallery is located at 116 Pleasant Street, Easthampton. MA. The exhibit will run with Love Song: Intimate Portraits by Arnold Skolnick that runs through end of June, followed by Photographers of the Pioneer Valley with reception on July 14, 2017 from 6-8 PM.
Tramontozzi says of her work, “When I photograph reflections, I muse on feelings I had forgotten to feel, details I must have missed, dreams I can’t quite recall, conversations I don’t understand, and places I didn’t experience in my rush through life. Just out of reach, but for me, still worth pursuing.”
Currently based in Boston, Tramontozzi has studied at the Santa Fe Photographic workshops and has participated in Atelier 22, 23 and 24 at Griffin Museum of Photography. Her work has also been part of the juried show, Projections! Art on the Brewery Wall, at the Jamaica Plain Open Studios. Her photo has also been featured as the cover of the best selling textbook. Currently, Donna is a corporator on the Griffin Museum Board of Directors.
