Mark Hopkins was 72 when he acquired his first digital camera.  He’s now recognized as an award-winning nature photographer, and in this talk, along with showing dozens of his photographs, he’ll discuss how it happened, where he’s headed with it, and how he works to help others appreciate this important art form.  He’ll also have a lot to say about the often misunderstood relationship between art photograph and photojournalism, demonstrating how image manipulation -– a sin in the minds of some – is an important artistic tool that works to the benefit of both photographer and viewer.

A Lincoln resident, Mark Hopkins has had his work exhibited in galleries and museums around New England and beyond.  His photographs are represented in several collections.

Margret Krakauer was trained as a biologist and social worker, but turned to art when her children were young and she took some time off from her job in child welfare.  She began studying with internationally known Wayland artist, George Dergalis, whom she studied with until his death a few years ago.  Concentrating in watercolor, she has also worked in egg tempera and emulsion, gouache, acrylics, and oils.

She has always been intrigued by nature, and often explores gardens and their wildlife. She loves the whimsy of animals, and tries to capture their unique world. And she gravitates to the sea - she snorkels, and enjoys the beautiful tropical fish of the Caribbean. She adores New England - the gorgeous seasons, the diversity of terrain, the architecture, the ocean, the countryside and the cities, and the breadth of humanity.

For this demonstration, she will bring a few paintings created after trips to Italy and France, and will talk about using photographs as the basis for paintings.   Using one or more photographs taken during a holiday, she painted pieces that are evocative of the area visited. Her next trip is to the Galapagos in January- stay tuned.
