Please join me for the opening reception at the Leonard R. Craig Gallery, Unity College Center for the Performing Arts: Thursday, March 12th 5 – 7pm. Exhibition runs through April 18th.
This exhibition is part of The Maine Photo Project, A Statewide Photography Collaboration in 2015.
Dr. Alan Lightman wrote an introduction to the work, he notes, “… Witman has taken a minimalist view of the art of photography. Not only has she dispensed with the lens of the camera. … And rather than impose lines and shadows on that film by her own design, she has chosen the commonplace slug – surely one of the slightest and most humble animals on earth – as her agent and accomplice. Her paintbrush is a living creature, and the image is created over time, unpredictably, as the that creature goes about its business of crawling, eating, defecating, unaware that it is achieving a bit of immortality in the traces it leaves behind.”

I am excited to share that my newest project “Genesis” was featured in Lenscratch. A huge thank you to Aline Smithson for her kind words and support. Here”s a highlight of Aline”s introduction … ” Deanna uses photographic processes and random gestures or movements made by slugs as they navigate across the paper, in slow determined paths. The results are heavenly markings that reflect time, movement, and things left behind.” You view the full post here.
