Starting on September lst, there will be a wonderful exhibit on display in the Wotiz Gallery by Milton photographer Leesha Boylan. In this personal project, which is called “Available Light: Exploring Americana Through New England Cottages,” Ms. Boylan photographs objects found in antique cabins and cottages throughout New England, using only the available natural light and shooting the objects exactly as she finds them. These pieces of Americana from family cottages explore ideas around leisure, the passage of time, and nostalgia. She is the photographer and owner of Leesha Haley Photography, shooting weddings, portraits, and events in the Boston area for the past 17 years. Leesha has a BFA in Photography and Art Education from Massachusetts College of Art and an M.Ed. from Bridgewater State University. She sets out to document the loveliness in the world, creating a narrative and evoking emotion through the use of light, mood, and composition. When she is not behind the lens, Leesha can be found in the classroom as a fine arts teacher in the Boston Public Schools. She also loves adventuring near and far with her husband and two daughters. There will be a free and open reception held on Thursday evening, October 18th from 6-8 PM, where you can come to the Gallery to meet the artist. Please check out this interesting exhibit at the Library this Fall.
