PACC member Nadine Levin’s image, Water Color Ballerinas 04, has been selected for inclusion in the 27th Juried Exhibition of the Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, MA.  Arnika Dawkins, of the Arnika Dawkins Gallery in Atlanta, was the judge.


The winning images are presented at:

The Griffin Museum of Photography is dedicated to the art of photography.  Through its exhibitions, programs and lectures, the Museum strives to encourage a broader understanding and appreciation of the visual, emotional and social impact of photographic art.  Arthur Griffin was born in 1903 in Massachusetts and was the exclusive photographer for the Boston Globe Rotogravure Magazine and also provided the first color photographs in the Saturday Evening Post.

Nadine says:  This image was taken in the older part of Panama City, Panama.  While walking through the city the morning after a rain storm, I saw a group of young women practicing for a ballet recital on the cobblestones.  It struck me that it was a difficult surface to perform ballet, and I assumed there were no other alternative locations for them.  I decided to shoot them as they practiced, unaware I was photographing them, as reflections in a rain puddle.  The result was an unexpected artifact that presented a dreamy feel and a halo above the head of one of the dancers.


The exhibition runs from July 15 through August 29.  The gallery is currently open by appointment only.  At this time, the July 15 reception is scheduled to be virtual.
