Carmine Angeloni

I am a self-taught photographer. I am fortunate to have built a photographic life on various artistic and technical training opportunities, dating back to Massachusetts College of Art, now MassArt (Boston, Mass.) darkroom experience in the 1960s, and Maine Photographic Workshops, now Maine Media (Rockport, Maine) in the 1970s, the latter, in fact having led to my first show, a black and white print exhibit, at the Brickmill Gallery in Ware, Massachusetts. My second and third shows were the color print exhibit “Horse Logging on the Holyoke Range” during November, 1985 at the Hitchcock Center in Amherst, Massachusetts, and a set of prints displaying historic Civilian Conservation Corps structures on Massachusetts state forestland.  After somewhat of a hiatus, I developed an 11 print exhibit titled “of water, clouds and light” in August through December of 2015 for the LeWitt Gallery at the University of Connecticut Health Center in Farmington, Connecticut, and a 10 print exhibit titled “Of earth and ocean” September of 2015 for the Hosmer Gallery at the Forbes Library in Northampton, Massachusetts. In March and April of 2016 I developed a 10 print exhibit for the Green Bean Gallery in Northampton, Massachusetts.  I am fortunate to have participated in juried shows in Western Massachusetts and, most recently, here in Eastern Connecticut, and have been an exhibitor at Paradise City Arts Festival in Northampton and Marlborough, Massachusetts since 2015. I earned a BS in Forestry from the University of Massachusetts in 1978, followed by a 33-year career with the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Management (now Department of Conservation and Recreation), and was awarded a Master of Regional Planning degree from the University of Massachusetts in 1998.  When asked to define art, a gallerist friend once commented that art is expression that either asks questions, or answers them. The best, she added, will do both. And if the only question that’s posed is “why”, I asked? Especially if the question is “why”, she replied.
