Kathy McCarver Root will present 'The Art of Collecting Photography' in a powerpoint presentation in the Wykeham Room of the Gunn Memorial Library on Thursday, October 25th at 6:30pm. Kathy's extensive 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 décor styles-modern, traditional, urban and country." Kathy began her romance with photography upon moving to New York City, where she landed an internship with Esquire Magazine. An avid collector herself, Kathy gained her experience over two decades while working as a photography editor for books (monographs of Lillian Bassman and David Seymour/Chim, Weekend Retreats, Rizzoli, 2008) and prestigious magazines (Esquire, US Weekly, and InStyle). She is now is 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. Please call the Library for further information at (860) 868-7586 or visit www.gunnlibrary.org.
