Art on Main to exhibit photographs by Bristol’s Anne Majusiak

Art on Main in Bristol has put up their new exhibit, “What I Saw: Photographs by Anne Majusiak.” Majusiak’s work is known by many in the area who follow her on Facebook and Instagram — each new image a testament to her unique eye and fierce commitment to getting the right setting, the right time of day, the right angle and the right light. That and a little “magic” imbues her photographs of iconic Vermont scenes with something distinctive.
Anne‘s work offers a new way to look at our beloved surroundings with a deep appreciation of the countless details that create the beauty of our world. “What I Saw” opens with a public reception on Friday, Aug. 17, from 5-7 p.m. and will be on display through Oct. 8. All are welcome.
Majusiak studied photography at university back in the ’80s, and was immediately drawn to the process, although the techniques of shooting and printing in a darkroom then were a far cry from today’s myriad of options for capturing and altering images. Even though she didn’t make photography her early career, over the years she has continued exploring her creativity through the lens of a camera and kept up with all the latest technology.
“TREE SILHOUETTED IN Blue Hour” is one of photographer Anne Majusiak’s photos on display at Art on Main at 25 Main Street in Bristol.
Majusiak, a longtime Bristol resident, is an avid cyclist, gardener and all-around outdoors person. Many of her photographs were taken within 20 miles of Bristol; some of the most interesting ones captured during her daily walk with her dog through the fields and out to the New Haven River behind her house. “I never knows what will catch my eye,” she said. “So my rule is to always carry my camera with me — everywhere.”
Majusiak often finds herself captivated by a scene she may have passed many times before. “My favorite images are those that reveal themselves to me when my heart is open to the world around me,” the artist explained. “When I am in that magical place of openness, I see familiar scenes through new eyes.”
Majusiak has participated in the “Lenses on the Land” workshops at Shelburne Farms for several years and exhibited pieces in the show that followed. She recently had several photos in the Barn Show at the Compass Center in Brandon. Many people know her through her former work as the Gallery Manager of Frog Hollow in Middlebury and later in her involvements with the Vermont Crafts Council, the Vermont Standards Committee, and, currently, the one World Library Project.
Don’t miss this new exhibit at Art on Main located at 25 Main Street in Bristol. For more info call (802) 453-4032 or visit artonmain.net.
