Photographer Shareen Davis

West Falmouth Library, in conjunction with the Falmouth Art Center, presents  Shareen Davis a commercial and fine art photographer, a former photo editor and commercial fisherman, and present owner of Trap Dock Press, a design and publishing company located in Chatham. She is a 13th generation Cape Codder who resides in Chatham with her husband, weir fisherman Ernie Eldredge. Her work reflects more than 30 years of photographing the people of the coastal fishery communities. “My family and I have lived and worked on the shoreline and by the sea, so our spirits are really tied to that sense of being and time,” Davis said.

Her book, “Through the Fog- A photographer’s retrospective of a life lived along the shoreline of Chatham” (Trap Dock Press) is due out in Spring 2017.

Davis’ presentation is in conjunction with “Under the Sea” an exhibit in the Landrau-Partan Gallery at the Falmouth Art Center, April 19 – May 22. The Art Center is located at 137 Gifford Street in Falmouth. For more information, call 508 540-3304.

The business of art is an intriguing and complex subject.  Not only is this of concern for the person entertaining a life in the arts, but it continues to be challenging for those who are established and entrepreneurs at heart.

Karen Rinaldo will address questions such as how to price and promote one’s work.  She will discuss the fear of stepping outside of one’s comfort zone, running a gallery, and the dynamics attached to commissions .

This one hour conversation will reveal a portrait of a day-in-the-life of Karen’s work habits and how she approaches the creative process, which is still awe-inspiring for her every day. We hope you will join us!
