Windsor – A Photographer’s Vision
2010 through 2010
Leonard Hellerman shows us through his images the
beauty to be found in Windsor’s varied landscapes. In accompanying
labels, Hellerman identifies where each photograph was taken and what
inspired him -- a rare window into the mind of an artist.
Leonard Hellerman has been photographing
since he was a seventh grader, first documenting sports and high
school activities, then branching into art photography. Hellerman’s
photographs have been displayed in many places, including Farmington
Valley Arts Center, Palm Beach Photographic Center, West Hartford
Art League, Essex Art Association, Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts,
and the William Benton Museum at the University of Connecticut. He
currently serves as president of the Connecticut Academy of Fine
Arts. A retired dentist, Hellerman has been the recipient of many
awards for his photographic art. His work has been widely published
in Connecticut books and magazines.
This exhibition and related programs
(which included a “Visions of Windsor” photography contest on June
8th and a “Best of Windsor” armchair tour in slides by Len Hellerman
on June 15th) are supported by the Connecticut Commission on Culture
and Tourism and the National Endowment for the Arts, the George A.
and Grace L. Long Foundation, and the Greater Hartford Arts Council.
The exhibition and the Society’s programming is also supported by
the following sponsors of specific photographs: an anonymous donor,
Christine Ermenc and William Hosley, The Savings Bank Life Insurance
Company, and Windsor Federal Savings. At the show’s end, each will
receive the handsomely framed image they have chosen to sponsor.
Gold sponsorships for any of the framed photographs displayed are
still available at $1,000. Silver sponsorships for photographs not
already chosen are available for $500.
