“The Thrill of Discovery” — a new exhibition at the Bistro Latino Gallery in Old Greenwich — will showcase the breadth of work and creative vision of award-winning photographer Phyllis Sinrich. It will run from March 1 to April 30, 2013, with an Artist Reception on Wednesday, March 6 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.
Sinrich notes, “For me, photography is the thrill of discovery. The ‘wow’ of coming upon bits of paint and paper transformed into dazzling street art. . .an awesome reflection. . .an image that resonates emotionally. Find it. Shoot it. Capture it forever.”
Working in a style she describes as spontaneous “photo-expressionism,” she looks for subjects that capture the power of brilliant color, form and texture. This journey has taken her to remote destinations on six continents and has evolved into a series of distinct portfolios — including work on aluminum — that continues to grow and expand into new genres.
Her photographs have been exhibited regularly in area juried shows, most notably the annual Faber Birren National Color Award Show at the Stamford Art Association, where she has won several sponsored awards over the years. One of her abstract images was a First Place winner in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Annual National Photo Competition.
Other venues have been the Katonah Museum of Art in Katonah, NY; Silvermine Guild Arts Center in New Canaan, CT; the Edward Hopper House Art Center in Nyack, NY; the Fairfield Museum and History Center, the Quick Center of the Arts, and the General Electric World Headquarters, all in Fairfield, CT. For the past few years she has increasingly exhibited at invitational and solo shows. Her photographs are held in private and corporate collections.
