“Sights & Sounds of the American Southwest”, Hazel Meredith, MNEC
This show presents images from five trips over a period of three years to the Southwest – Grand Canyon/Sedona, AZ; Tucson, AZ; Santa Fe/Albuquerque, NM; Bryce Canyon/Zion National Park, UT; and Yellowstone.
Hazel and her husband, Dave, enjoy visiting the southwest and have come to appreciate the stark beauty of the desert and unusual rock formations throughout the area created eons ago – and seemingly, that time forgot. The geographical wonders of Yellowstone will transport you to more surreal landscapes.
Hazel is currently president of the Huntington Photographic Society; immediate past-president and current treasurer of the Greater Bridgeport Camera Club; president of the Connecticut Association of Photographers; and a member of the New Haven Camera Club and the Photographic Society of America – of which she is also the PSA “Journal” Camera Club Columnist.
Her photos have won many awards and competitions in the past few years in both local club competitions and international salons. She is a multi-star exhibitor in PSA, where she has also received four bronze stars and one silver star for her journalistic efforts. In 2008 she received an honors distinction of Master Member of the New England Camera Club Council (MNEC) during its annual conference.
Hazel has had several exhibits of her photographs at local libraries, restaurants and businesses throughout Connecticut and also enjoys teaching classes and seminars on Photoshop Elements and Pro Show Gold. She has taught for the Bridgeport Adult Education department as well as local camera clubs. She enjoys being active in the photographic community and helping others find the joy and satisfaction in taking beautiful images.
