Still River Editions is again hosting quarterly art shows, and Owner Mark Savoia approached the Connecticut chapter of the American Society of Media Photographers about exhibiting some of their work.
"They came up with the idea of orange," said Lys Guillorn, a fine art imaging associate, at Still River Editions, a division of Connecticut Photographics.
The images include people, still lifes, nature, architecture and a cat. For more information on the exhibit, which runs through Feb. 28, click here.
