4316February 15, 2011, Greencastle, Ind. — A photograph by Cynthia O'Dell, University Professor and associate professor of art at DePauw University, is included in an upcoming exhibition at the Photoplace Gallery in Middlebury, Vermont.  Works by forty artists will be included in "Home ... is Where the Camera Is," which will be on view March 1 - 26.  Professor O'Dell's contribution (seen below) is from her series, "Maggie's Light."

A synopsis of the event states, "Home. We photograph our houses, our yards, our children, our friends, our celebrations, our anxieties. And we move beyond ourselves to photograph homes of others -- strangers, as well as people we know. Home is where the camera is, and it's where we use it to record our lives and the lives of others."

Photographer Julie Blackmon acted as juror for the exhibition.Besides choosing  forty photographs for exhibition at PhotoPlace Gallery, she also picked an additional thirty-five images for the gallery's "online 90729annex." All selected work will be included in a full-color exhibition catalogue available for purchase.
