"The Art of Collectiing Photography" Talk in Conneticut



Via Voices the Newspaper


WASHINGTON — Kathy McCarver Root will present The Art of Collecting Photography in a powerpoint presentation at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, October 25, in the Wykeham Room of the Gunn Memorial Library, 5 Wykeham Rd.

Ms. McCarver Root’s career as a photo editor and collector makes her uniquely suited in this particular field.

She says, “Photography is an extremely versatile medium and therefore can be woven into a variety of types of collections-paintings, drawings, ceramics, as well as a variety of d├ęcor styles — modern, traditional, urban and country.”

Ms. McCarver Root began her photography career upon moving to New York City, where she landed an internship with Esquire Magazine. An avid collector, she gained her experience throughout two decades while working as a photography editor.
She is now a photography dealer and consultant, working with individual and corporate clients to purchase and install fine art photography.

This program is free and open to the public. Registration is recommended.
