March and April Artist: Art Norton

Come to the library to see the photograph exhibit of Art Norton's work. It will be on display through March and April in our second floor meeting room. 



Artist's Statement: 
I am a retired Program Manager from the high tech world who has decided to look at becoming more involved in photography. Only time will tell where this adventure will lead.
I have been interested in photography since I was a kid but have never had the opportunity to pursue it seriously. Now that I am retired, I have decided that it is time for me to start a new adventure in life and see where it takes me.
I have always had a camera around. I started with a little Kodak Brownie camera. Later on, when I was in the Air Force, I bought a Canon SLR while I was overseas and absolutely loved it. I used it for a number of years until it would no longer focus. By that time I had started a family so my priorities had changed and photography took a back seat to other more important things.
Over the last five years or so my wife and I started taking long “weekend” trips throughout New England and New York. I decided a point and shoot camera wasn’t enough anymore so I bit the bullet and purchased a DSLR.
I love the outdoors. Whether it is a trip along the coast of New England or walking down a path in a forest somewhere, there are always beautiful sites to see and admire. I always have the feeling of being free and being close to nature which, to me, is a wonderful feeling.
I hope the photos here provide you with the same kind of enjoyment and peace of mind that these places and creatures have provided to me.

Sincerely, Art Norton
