Closing Reception: “From the Sea”

We are sorry to announce that due to an illness, Deb Schwedhelm will not be able to make the 10-hour drive from her home in Virginia for her talk this Sunday. We will, however, hold a closing reception in lieu of the talk from 4 to 6pm. 

We apologize for any inconvenience – but hope to see you at VCP to celebrate this remarkable exhibit nonetheless. Get well soon, Deb!

Born in Detroit, Michigan, Deb Schwedhelm was originally trained as Registered Nurse and subsequently spent 10 years employed as an Air Force Nurse. Although she has been passionate about photography since her early 20s, it wasn’t until Deb left the military that she was finally able to pursue the medium as a full time career. Deb’s photographs have been exhibited widely and featured in numerous publications throughout the world. She has received awards from PhotoNOLA, New Orleans, LA; MPLS Photo Center, Minneapolis, MN; The Perfect Exposures Gallery, Los Angeles, CA; A. Smith Gallery, Johnson City, TX; Santa Fe Photographic Workshops, Santa Fe, NM; and The Art of Photography Show, San Diego, CA. Deb was named one of the Top 50 in Critical Mass, 2013. Her photographs have also been selected for the permanent collection of The Center for Fine Art Photography, Fort Collins, CO. Deb is married to a Naval Explosive Ordnance Disposal Officer based in Virginia. She is the mother to three children, who are often the subjects of her photographs. 

Closing Reception: Sunday, October 29th, 4 to 6pm
