“WOMAN” is a new exhibition of Fine Art Photography by Hills artist Patrizia Menton. The show will feature a selection of Patrizia’s favorite images of women from different countries and backgrounds. These photographs are both in colour as well as black and white, and Patrizia still shoots on film and print with the traditional process.

Menton was born in Italy and grew up there as well as in Germany, moving to Canada in her early twenties. Her love for visual arts led her to study photography and print making in Vancouver. She has shown extensively here and abroad.

Truly inspired by architecture and the natural world, Patrizia finds that people are also very fascinating subjects. She had wanted to put together a series like this for a very long time. The special series WOMAN explore the female presence in the modern world. Studio Connexion Gallery is showing the only photography exhibition of their season from August 28 to September 15. The reception for the artist will be held on Friday, August 31 from 5 to 8 p.m. Everyone is welcome. Studio Connexion is located at 203 5th Avenue in Nakusp.
