‘Two Sisters, Two Cameras’
Cushing — The Arts In The Barn summer weekend exhibition series continues with “Two Sisters, Two Cameras” featuring the photography of Phyllis Fales and Karen Jones. The barn is located eight miles from Thomaston; follow signs to the Olson House.
The show will open Friday, Aug. 24 with a 5 to 7 p.m. reception and continue Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 25 and 26 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Cushing Historical Society’s barn at 17 Hathorn Road.
As a teenager, Fales earned a Girl Scout badge for photography and dreamed she might some day earn a living with her camera work. Although she did not become a professional photographer, Fales has remained engrossed with capturing the landscapes she sees through her lens and sharing those images with others. She said she hopes to show people the beauty of our Earth and the great need to protect it.
Jones also was bitten by the photography bug early in life. For her, it began with a Kodak pocket camera and the warning not to “waste” the film. She remembers having an inkling at age 13 that she might like to be a serious photographer, but it was not until a couple of years ago, staring at an empty nest, that she finally took it seriously once again. She is grateful for digital photography and the world it has opened up for her — without the worry of wasting film, she can now shoot as many photos as she wants and wait for that moment when she knows she got a shot she wants to share.
