“Woodland Light:
Photographs of Chesterwood by Margaret Moulton”

Chesterwood, the home, studio and gardens of sculptor Daniel Chester French, continues to celebrate its 50th anniversary with a special photography exhibition by artist, photojournalist and educator, Margaret Moulton. There will be a free opening reception on Thursday, July 25 from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Woodland Gallery at Chesterwood, 4 Williamsville Rd. The studio, outdoor sculpture exhibition, and grounds will be also be open, with half-price admission, on July 25 from 5 to 7 p.m. The exhibition will be on view through Oct. 27.

For twelve months Moulton explored the woods at Chesterwood as an artist-in-residence. “Much like Daniel Chester French depended on natural light to highlight the subtleties of his sculpture, my photographic exploration of Chesterwood became a search for light and its balance with shadow,” Moulton said. “I saw this setting in black and white; aware of how the woodlands looked like an abstract drawing or a collage of leaves and twigs.”

The images for “Woodland Light: Photographs of Chesterwood by Margaret Moulton” were made with a medium format camera, on black and white negative film, printed in Moulton’s own darkroom. Moulton’s photographs are held in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, the San Francisco Museum of Art, the Hudson River Museum, and other private collections. Her work was also included in the exhibition, “Pictures by Women: A History of Modern Photography,” at the Museum of Modern Art.
