Art on Main opens show by Bristol photographer Anne Majusiak

BRISTOL — Art on Main 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 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 options for capturing and altering images. Even though she didn’t make photography her early career, over the years she continued to explore her creativity through the lens of a camera and learned new skills like Photoshop and the latest digital camera technology.
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. She says she “never knows what will catch my eye, 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. 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.
SEE “SNOW GEESE Migration Dead Creek” at the opening reception for photographer Anne Majusiak on Friday, July 17 from 5-7 p.m. at Art on Main, 25 Main Street in Bristol.
