About the Exhibition: Upon attending the reception for the highly competitive juried show ArtsConnect@CatamountArts, artist Steve Edson learned that he had been designated Second Prize Winner by Juror and Fleming Museum Curator Andrea Rosen. The day his ride back home to Boston stretched from 3 hours to 10 hours as he stopped to take photographs of the winter landscape as he drove through Vermont and New Hampshire. For Edson, his photography is all about “how to look at what might be considered commonplace and extract that visual gem.”
