Annual Meeting and Program:
One Hundred Views of Windsor -- An Eclectic Selection by Photographer Leonard Hellerman
June 15 7pm
What are the aspects of Windsor that make it unique? On Tuesday, June 15th at 7:15 p.m. (following the Society’s 7 p.m. annual meeting), the public is invited to discover the beauty of Windsor through slide images of local photographer Leonard Hellerman. Although he has photographed throughout the country, Hellerman believes he does not have to leave his home town to capture interesting and artistic photographs. See stunning photographs of Windsor’s backwoods and byways, view many never-shown-before images and gain new perspectives on Windsor from the comfort of your chair.
Leonard Hellerman has been a resident of Windsor for over 50 years. He took up photography at the age of 14. Hellerman is president of the prestigious 100 year old Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts. During the winter months, he serves as the events photographer for the Palm Beach Photographic Centre, a non-profit institution that conducts photographic workshops with many nationally-known photographers. Windsor residents are most familiar with his photographs on the cover of the Windsor seasonal calendar There’s A Lot to Do in Windsor. His exhibition Windsor – A Photographer’s Vision is currently on view in the Society’s meeting room. Archivally-printed images from the slide show may be ordered after the program. Purchase prices start at $45 and Dr. Hellerman is generously donating 40 percent of the proceeds to Windsor Historical Society.
This program is supported by the Connecticut Commission on Culture and Tourism, the George A. and Grace L. Long Foundation, and the Greater Hartford Arts Council. Cost is $6 for adults, $5 for seniors and students, and free for Society members. Parking is available in the Windsor Discovery Center and First Church parking lots and around Palisado Green.
