ABOUT THE CURATOR
Alison Thomas was born in Frankfurt, Germany and grew up in Falls Church, Virginia. She became interested in photography as an art form at the age of 19 and has been perfecting and evolving her technique ever since. Throughout her life she has found her spiritual and artistic center in nature.
She started doing art festivals and exhibits in 2003 and has been doing them ever since. Over time her work changed from standard nature shots to vertical and horizontal panoramas that are digitally manipulated. She has received several awards for her work, most recently a first place in photography from the Virginia Fall Foliage Festival in Waynesboro, Virginia.
She strives to capture not necessarily the exact record of a scene but its essence, the essence of Virginia.
This show has been curated by Louisa photographer/artist Alison Thomas, who was recently featured in the Purcell Gallery, and includes photography from the Fredericksburg Photography Club and other area photographers!
