Photographer Returns to Vermont, Opens
Exhibit at Feick Center
POULTNEY, VT – Landscapes, seascapes and the beauty of the seasons serve as inspiration for a photography exhibit at the Feick Fine Arts Center from Maine resident Jim Sulham.
“Photography by Jim Sulham” opens at the Feick June 22. An artist reception will be held Friday, June 26, from 5-7 p.m. It is free and open to the public.
Sulham studied fine art at the Art Institute of Boston before going on to a career as art director for publications and companies including Fly Fisherman magazine, Backpacker magazine, The Orvis Company and L.L. Bean. He also taught at Green Mountain College and lived in Poultney for close to 20 years. In 2004, he took an early retirement and started photographing full-time.
“Living on the coast of Maine provides me with constant inspiration and I am continually awed by the beauty of the seasons,” he said. “I travel back to Vermont frequently to visit family and love the mountains and peaceful open landscape that is Vermont. I am quite thankful to be a born and bred New Englander with the natural beauty this region affords us.”
“Photography by Jim Sulham” will be on display from June 22-July 24. The Feick Fine Arts Center is open to the public Monday through Friday from 1-5 p.m. There is no admission charge.
