The Art Guild past & present (video with music, 2013-2020):
I got such happy news recently – my photograph “The Three Graces” won First Place in The Art Guild’s current Photography Exhibit: “Everything Old is New Again.”
TAG board members and the juror stressed how each photographer with work in the exhibit had reason to be proud, since there were over 200 entries, and Elderfields has room to display about 65 pictures.

“The Three Graces” is part of my multi-year photographic series of Lori Belilove & The Isadora Duncan Dance Company performing on the grounds of Old Westbury Gardens, an historic estate on the Gold Coast of Long Island.
I captured the photos used to create “The Three Graces” during a dance of the mythological trio at the South Allee, a vast evergreen-lined path unfurling from the rear of the mansion, and I completed the oval photo in 2020.
Expressing and unifying the dichotomy of the eternal and ephemeral, individual and group, past and present… helped inspire “The Three Graces.”
