During May, the Camden Public Library will host an online show of photographic artwork by Sue Michlovitz and Dianne Kittle called “Visual Artists: Our Journeys to a Personal Project.”
Michlovitz and Kittle are both pursuing Master of Fine Arts degrees at Maine Media College in Rockport and are to graduate in May.
The images featured in the show highlight work that each artist has collected for publication in two books. The online show will be complemented by a Zoom event with Michlovitz and Kittle at 6 p.m. Monday, May 3. To request a Zoom link to attend, email [email protected].
“My images convey scenes that may go unnoticed by others,” said Michlovitz, according to a news release from the library. “I frame the images to create new perspectives of what I photograph.”
Michlovitz, whose mediums are photography and book art, is a member of the Mid-Coast Maine Book Arts group. She recently joined the Center for Maine Contemporary Art Board of Trustees in Rockland where she serves on the education committee.
Kittle has studied photography in California, New Mexico and Australia. She taught photography at an international school in Thailand and in Illinois at the Chicago Botanic Garden.
“My lens on the world reveals truth by masking unnecessary details of what sits directly in front of the camera,” said Kittle. “Dissolving reveals. Pure representation gives way to the mystery of new experiences. Using my camera as a tool, I drop or crop details to boost communication.”
In the Zoom event on May 3, both artists plan to show and discuss recent work as well as talk about how they used their photographic imagery as source material for books. The month-long art show will be available to view beginning Saturday, May 1, at librarycamden.org/event/michlovitz-kittle.
