Herkimer County Community College’s Cogar Gallery will feature “Follow the Water,” Photographs of alumnus Kathleen Deep, ‘08, Ashford, CT from June 7-July 15, 2013 in the Cogar Gallery. An opening reception will be held Friday, June 7 from 7-9pm.
Kathleen Deep is a photographer from Upstate New York who continues to work in black & white film. She received her associate in applied science degree in photographic technology from Herkimer County Community College in 2008, and was a member of Phi Theta Kappa National Honor Society. She then earned a bachelor in fine arts from Cazenovia College and in May 2013 graduated from the University of Connecticut with a M.F.A. in studio art specializing in photography with an art history minor, cum laude.
Deep’s work most recently has been exhibited at the Benton Museum in Storrs, CT, and at Sideshow Gallery in Brooklyn, NY. She currently lives and works in Connecticut. “I walk alone amongst the trees. I wade slowly and wait for the water to still,” she said. “By slowing my step and my seeing, I am more aware of my behaviors while wandering. I question what my connection is to the natural world, and where my comfort in silence and solitude derives from. The more I explore and photograph my surroundings; I develop an understanding of them. The more I understand, the closer I feel to becoming part of them,” Deep concluded.
The Cogar Gallery is located in the Hummel Corporate and Professional Education Center, at the main entrance to the McLaughlin College Center. It is open to the public free of charge Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. when the College is open. Visit online at http://www.herkimer.edu/cogar.
