Photo exhibit coming to Wisdom House

ContributedLITCHFIELD – The Marie Louise Trichet Gallery at Wisdom House announces the opening of its first exhibit for 2010 on Jan. 23 with the work of fine art photographer John Talbert of Goodyear, Ariz.


Talbert, who grew up in Phoenix had his love of photography sparked by a gift of Ansel Adams’ portfolios. These, plus his own memories of the southwest, fueled the fire for his future passion. He had his first exhibit in 1988 and eventually taught himself, “moving”, as he says, “ from using a 35 mm and medium format cameras to the 4×5 view camera.” He notes that his creativity “evolved from the grand Western Landscapes to the smaller and simpler parts of the views to be found everywhere and sometimes right under foot.” Upon returning from serving in the Army in Vietnam, he began working in the drywall construction industry in Phoenix, but never lost his passion for photography.

The exhibit is open to the public. The MLT Gallery hours are Monday – Saturday, 10 am – 4 pm. This exhibit will run through April 17. For further information, call Wisdom House at 860-567-3163, email, or visit
