We are proud to announce that our very own designer Elyssa Conley will be exhibiting her images in a show at The Center for the Arts Natick, 14 Summer Street, Natick, MA, from February 29- March 31, 2012. Elyssa’s exhibit is titled “The Eclectic Lens”. The exhibits can be viewed during TCAN’s normal business hours, Tuesday – Saturday, 12 Noon – 6 pm.
Elyssa Conley studied photography at the Art Institute of Boston as well as art and design at Lasell College. Her photography is diverse and includes subjects taken from nature as well as her travels in the United States and abroad. Her images have been described as having a ‘tranquil and ethereal’ quality. Elyssa says she is most passionate about “capturing the magic of light in the early morning or late afternoon which creates long shadows that enhance contours and texture, turning the ordinary into the extraordinary.”
Inspired by the work of Galen Rowell, Andre Gallant and Trey Ratcliff, Elyssa uses the digital darkroom to enhance her artistic vision. She also enjoys experimenting with various creative post-processing techniques, including High Dynamic Range Imaging, the Orton technique, texture overlays and mirror imaging.
Elyssa has exhibited her work in various galleries around the Boston area. She has won numerous camera club photography competitions, was the winner of the ‘Focus on Natick’ held by Natick 360 planning commission and her image ‘Clergy and Tourist’ won Editor’s Choice in Digital Photographer magazine.
