Susan Worsham at Light Work

Richmond, VA based photographer Susan Worsham will have a show of her work in the Kathleen O. Ellis Gallery at Light Work, the photography center at 316 Waverly Avenue, in Syracuse, NY.

The show features work from Worsham's  Bittersweet/Bloodwork portfolio, some of which is here. 

Worsham's show opens on September 4th and will be up through October 12th, 2012. There will be a reception with the artist in the gallery from 5-7 pm on September 13th. 

Worsham does powerfully personal, meditative work with friends, neighbors, and locations from her childhood in Richmond, Virginia. Her work will also be featured in issue 168 of Light Work's publication Contact Sheet

Worsham has had a splendid career of late as a photographer.  In 2009 she was nominated for the Santa Fe Prize for Photography, and her book Some Fox Trails In Virginia won first runner up in the fine art category of the Blurb Photography Book Now International Competition.

In 2010 Worsham was awarded the first TMC / Kodak Film Grant, and was an Artist-in-Residence at Light Work, in preparation for this exhibition.

She has also had exhibitions at the Corcoran Gallery in Wahsington, DC, the Photographic Center Northwest, the  Dean Jensen Gallery in Milwaukee, and the Danville Museum, in, well, Danville, VA.

You can learn more about Worsham here, in an interview she did with Jonathan Blaustein on APhotoEditor.
