For someone who only recently took up photography, much less has begun to master the camera, and only a second-year member of The Center for Contemporary Arts, Peggy Shepherd’s work stands out.
Enough that two pieces were chosen for this year’s national juried competition, or CCAN.
Her pieces are titled “Woodpecker Symphony,” a closeup of a line of holes in a tree of variegated colors that reminded her of a progression of musical notes, and “Tribute to Georgia O,” developed on high gloss metal of a rose for which she used an editing program for enhancement.
Her 2020 work was “The Seasons of a Lily Pond,” in which she studied the changing of seasons to fall in the floating pads.
It’s abstract, she said, maybe an amoebic shape, but the viewer still knows he or she is looking at lily pads.
