Jeanne Vitale Photography

April 20 - May 24, 2019

Photographer Jeanine M. Vitale presents her exhibit The Tree's Got the Moon, on display through May 24th. Join us for the artist reception on Saturday, April 20 from 11 AM - 1 PM.

Jeanine has at various points in her artistic career been an opera singer, choral conductor, make-up artist, artistic director, dancer and choreographer. Her solid background in the performing arts has given her an ear to hear and an eye to see and remember the stories of life unfolding around her. The camera’s eye is the continuation and extension of her artist’s soul and skills.

Prism Point Photography, formed in 2005, is Ms. Vitale’s commercial studio for portrait work, events, theatrical photography and fine art photography. Feeling strongly about giving back to the community, she also photographs for various charities – Rebuilding Together Worcester, First Congregational Church in Paxton, Northborough Library and others. Her memberships include BNI (Business Networkers International), ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers), the Women’s Art Forum in Hopkinton and the Cultural Arts Alliance in Hudson. Her work currently can be seen in private collections and on her website. Ms. Vitale also has taught singing for over 40 years and continues to do so at her studio in Northboro.

For Jeanine, art, in all its forms, is the attempt to bring the untouchable mystery into the physical realm. Many people hunger for the opportunity to be creative. Digital photography has opened up a huge opportunity and outlet for the average person to explore this part of themselves. She loves teaching beginners in the art form. Happily, she has been able to carry that love of teaching into her recent classes of Basic Photography and Intro. To Photoshop for the Northborough and Sutton Free Libraries of Massachusetts.

Light refreshments will be provided at the artist reception on April 20th. Sponsored by the Friends of Lawrence Library.
