Castle Rock photographer has work in juried show


Castle Rock photographer Connie Rudd was selected by Jurist David Muench to exhibit her work in the oldest and longest running juried art show in Colorado.

Rudd’s photograph, “Whispered Passage of Time “ will join dozens of other two and three dimension artists in the Gilpin County Arts Association Show in Central City.

Housed in the historic Washing Hall in downtown Central City, the art show opens May 25 and runs through Aug.10.

“The historic structure is an unusual gallery space,” Rudd said in a news release, “and lends itself to a wonderful art experience.”

The opening reception and awards ceremony is June 2, from 5-7 p.m. Best of Show, Awards of Merit and Honorable Mention selections will be awarded.

Muench is a landscape photographer who crossed paths many times with Ansel Adams.

Both photographers regard the environment as something sacred and not to be ruined.

Rudd’s photo will exhibit as a 20-by-30-inch print, mounted on wood and framed. Like all art in the Gilpin Arts Association Show, it will be for sale.

“It is one of my favorite images of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park,” Rudd said in the release. “It was sunset on June 20, the Summer Solstice. Fires to west had drifted their smoke into the western end of the canyon, and as the sun dipped toward the horizon, the haze fractured the light `just right’, and I was there to record the moment.

“The image just draws your imagination down in to the abyss.”

Rudd exhibits at The Emporium, 200 S. Perry St., Castle Rock and this image is available for sale there.
