Carolyn Waksman Photography Workshop Show  Photographic work by graduates of Carolyn Waksman’s Photography Workshops will be on view January 23rd through February 21st at ICON Gallery. The show titled “The Artist Within Us” will be a highlight of the photography themed Art Walk, February 6th.  A reception and exhibit walk-through will be held at the gallery on Thursday, February 12th, 7:30pm. Waksman taught photography for 12 years at the Maharishi Upper School. She has offered courses for adults through Teeple Creative Arts Institute since 2008. Waksman students have garnered 200 International, National and State awards. The title refers to Waksman’s mission as a teacher. “My purpose for teaching,” she says, “is to awaken the artist within each person through photography. I feel that anyone can become a photographer if she/he would like to do so. I enjoy helping them learn about the camera controls so they can capture what they see. I enjoy taking them through the whole process from beginning to end – image making.” Most of the photographers in the show came to the five session Waksman Workshop with a new camera and knowing nothing, and most of them have come back for many workshops because they found they love photography. They have developed their own styles and have developed their refinement of image making over the years. “The photographs are top notch,” comments Waksman. “Everything is in place – the refinement is there.” Gallery Director Bill Teeple states, “I am very impressed by the creativity, diversity and professional quality displayed in this work. Carolyn is a master photography teacher, but more than that, she creates an inspired group consciousness. I want to share the achievements of this special group with everyone through this show at ICON Gallery.” Artists in the show: Judy Bales, Lenora Boyle, Ananda Burke, Jeffery Cohen, Nicki Collins, Care Connet, Manuel Coradin, Andy Cozzens, Diane Davis, Randy Dillon, Di Fenwick, Jaren Fleischman, Denise Gallagher, Suzie Gautherat, Leslee Goldstein, Moira Haines, Eva Hall, Steve Hall, Hal Masover, Kristiane Noergaard, Dori Rector, Jim Richardson, Bonnie Rosen, Tara Schmid, Paul Slowick, Patti Steurer, Richard Trice, Sandy Watsey.
