PRINCESS ANNE, Md. – Local photographer and world traveler Cheryl Nemazie presents, “A Career in Balance; Capturing the World from Both Sides of the Economic Divide,” at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore’s Mosely Gallery.
The exhibit opens with a reception Thursday, Nov. 3, from 4-6 p.m. and remains on display through Nov. 23.
“These beautiful photographs provide an intimate glimpse of the glaring inequities in our world,” Mosely Gallery Director Susan Holt said. “The contrast is poignant, but the overall message is also positive.”
Nemazie, she said, calls attention to victims of war and poverty around the world with her photography.
Nemazie, in her job as art director for global hotel brands, became curious about how the majority of the population in the many countries she visited lived, Holt said. She enrolled in a photography class for non-governmental aid organizations and her unique career path was born; one of art director creating carefully composed settings and that of documentary photographer capturing economically challenged situations as they unfolded before her.
The artist will visit the gallery, Friday, Nov. 11, from 10 a.m. to noon, for an informal discussion of her work with students and the community. The Mosely Gallery is located in the Arts and Technology building at UMES. Hours are Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free.
