Award-winning photographer to exhibit photos at Oxford Town Hall

This photo by Lisa Colberg titled
Twirling, Spinning captures a moment
with movement and joy,
so that the viewer feels the emotion
and wonder of childhood .  
Photographer Lisa Colberg will exhibit her photos for the months of September and October in the Meeting Room Gallery at Oxford Town Hall. The show is open during regular business hours, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday, from Sept. 1 to Oct. 30.

Colberg is an award-winning photographer whose inspiration comes from her late father, who was her family’s “Memory Keeper.” Self-taught, Colberg's desire is to artistically present images that tell a story beyond the actual moment captured. She often pursues images found in reflections, silhouettes and shadows, mesmerized by the depth and wonder that emerge from such photographs. Colberg prefers natural light and uses minimal post-processing, preferring to stay true to the actual image captured, to present it artistically, to enhance emotion, encourage wonder.

Colberg lives in Connecticut with her young family. When not behind the camera, Colberg works as a medical social worker. Her career has been as inspiration as well in her photography, especially in her portrait work, as her career has taught her much about humanity.

It is the mission of OCAC to enhance the quality of life of Oxford citizens and surrounding communities through the support of the arts. The OCAC will support, enhance, and facilitate artistic endeavors including the performing arts (music, dance and theatrical), visual arts, literary arts and cinematography with programs scholarships and special events, art and craft exhibits and the OXFORD’s FACE (Festival of Arts, Culture and Entertainment) in May. For more information contact info@oxfordculturalarts.org, or artgallery@oxfordculturalarts.org. Or call 203-881-6085.
