Library Exhibit Showcases Music In Living Color
TOMS RIVER – The Ocean County Library will host “TonalVision”, an exhibit of experimental photography by local artist Wendy Ritch, during November.
TonalVision is a series of digital images created with an electronic device known as a music visualizer. Ritch ran MP3 recordings of her own original musical compositions through the visualizer and captured the resulting screen images, which she then altered using PhotoShop. This highly original method produced 100 images using only twelve minutes of music.
“I can never create the same image twice, because the process is so dynamic,” says Ritch. “But I have many new songs to be written and new images to create.”
A resident of Wall Township, she is the Assistant Dean of the School of Nursing at the University of Medicine and Dentistry New Jersey (UMDNJ). Her interest in photography and digital imaging turned professional in 2007 with the founding of RitchVision Photography in 2007. Ritch has since exhibited her award-winning work in more than thirty solo and group exhibits and is an active member of the Toms River Artists Community (TRACx81).
A reception for Ritch will be held in the McConnell Gallery on November 11, 2010, 7:00-8:30 pm. Visitors are invited to meet the artist and enjoy light refreshments.
This exhibit is free and open to the public, and can be viewed in the Toms River Branch galleries during library hours. Additional information is available from either the Web site (www.theoceancountylibrary.org) or by telephoning (732) 349-6200, xt. 5100.
