Art lovers are cordially invited to the opening reception for “Senior Thesis,” a solo show featuring the photography of Onteora High School student Megan Davis.
The opening reception will take place at The Lockwood Gallery, 747 Route 28, Kingston, on Saturday, February 29, from 5 - 7 PM. The exhibition will run through March 6.
“Senior Thesis” is the culmination of Megan’s project for Onteora High School’s Gifted and Talented Community Mentor Program. This year, Megan has been working on her photography with guidance from her mentor, local portrait photographer Juliet Lofaro.
Megan, who grew up in Shokan, specializes in both darkroom and digital photography. At Onteora High School, she developed her craft through classes in studio art, photography, digital art, drawing and design, and independent study. Outside of school, she is an enthusiastic volunteer at the Center for Photography at Woodstock.
Megan’s work has been exhibited in shows throughout Ulster County, including “Future Voices” at the Muroff-Kotler Visual Arts Gallery at SUNY Ulster, “A Light in the Dark” (featuring film photography of students from four local high schools), and the “Onteora Student Art Show” at the Olive Free Library.
Megan recently started her own business, Ivy Photography, which specializes in portraiture and album cover photographs.
