Elusive Persona is an exhibition displaying the intimate and graceful work of photographers Carrie Will and Sarah MacWright.

Will’s work includes images from the series entitled I Am Redundant as well as her series In Memoriam. I Am Redundant includes imagery displaying the intricate relationship between Will and her twin and defining herself as an individual as well as part of her twin. Her images display thoughtful and intimate situations between Will and her sister bringing the viewer into their world as identical twins. The exhibition also brings you into Will’s personal vision on memory and loss with photographs from the series In Memoriam which has been created from Will's personal experience in dealing with loss. Will currently teaches at New Paltz and Sage Colleges. (

MacWright completed undergraduate studies at Williams College and the Glasgow School of Art. She taught photography, painting and drawing for three years at the Doane Stuart School before returning to her native New Jersey to make art and pursue graduate work at New York University. (

MacWright’s photographs dwell in quiet moments: sheets left to dry in the sun, walls inhabited by autographs left years ago, and the fading details of architecture. This selection of images from across MacWright’s practice is titled Observations.

MacWright is also pleased to exhibit a new body of photographs, Raisin Bread Universe. Through this work, MacWright considers rising raisin bread as a metaphor for the expanding universe. In short, as the raisins move away from each other, any one raisin could believe it is the center of the universe. Charmed by the intimacy of the kitchen and its potential to help us imagine the universe, these new works are at once humorous and romantic.

Nostalgia and remininscences are evoked by the masterful works of these artists.

Max Tiller, who first came to our attention some 40 years ago as a master printer, active member of the Schenectady Photographic Society, and advisor on all matters photographic, exhibits a varied selection of work from his ever evolving explorations of techniques with unmatched mastery and brilliant creativity. His prior work, ever original, has been shown in countless locations in the Capital Region.

Recent Work by Linda Morrell

August 10–September 30, 2012

The photographs in this exhibition represent an exploration of visual elements that work together to form a cohesive idea. Linda Morrell utilizes selected photographs as elements rather than singular compositions in order to build images that are unconstrained by time and place. The resulting images, composites, become more powerful than their individual parts, inviting us to contemplate the relationship between the photographs.
