About the work

For the past twenty-three years, the tobacco sheds that dot the landscape of the Connecticut River Valley and the netting that shade the plants have been subjects for Sceery's art. The white net softly billowing over the freshly filled soil that surrounds the sheds is a particularly breathtaking sight. This exhibit features Sceery's photographs of this mystical landscape, printed on chiffon to recall that magical, floating experience.

About the artist

A native of Staten Island, New York, Sceery attended the New York Art Students League.
She moved to Connecticut after her marriage, earning an Associates of Arts Degree from Manchester Community College while raising her family. She has worked in the art department of a photographic lab, and as an Art handler and Preparator at Yale University Art Gallery and various museums and Galleries through out Connecticut. She works in photography, oils, encaustics, pastel, printmaking, and assemblage, and is constantly reexamining, rearranging, seeking the essence, the basic line, form and/or color.
