Home on the Hudson: Solo Photography Exhibition

December 11, 2023 - March 29, 2024

Free

Susan Meyer’s solo photography exhibition, Home on the Hudson, runs from December 11 – March 29 at Country Corner Café in Saratoga Springs during hours of operation (7:30 AM – 1:30 PM daily). The exhibition is part of Saratoga Arts’ Art in Public Places program.

Artist Statement

Living on the bank of the Hudson River is like having a front-row seat to a stage that is always in motion and constantly changing. You never know from moment to moment what will come down the river or what you will encounter when you go on the river, as I do in my kayak. In addition to being my muse, the river is one of my greatest teachers.

When the surface of the water is tranquil, it reflects everything around it. The magnificence of a sunrise or sunset is doubled when it’s reflected clearly, and river reflections are a favorite subject of mine.

However, it’s not just tranquil water that reflects. The life forms I encounter on the river are like mirrors showing me something about myself or life. You might see the same kind of wildlife, tree, or flower countless times, and it doesn’t make much of an impression. Then one day, suddenly you become transfixed by it. Perhaps it’s illuminated just right, seems to have a special message, or allows you to get closer than you’d been able to get before. Those are magic moments. This exhibition is a collection of magic moments offered as part of a story of awareness, gratitude, connection, caring, awe, and understanding.

For me, photography is a meditative practice through which I find angles that serve as exquisite openings to the luminosity that is our essential nature. I share my contemplative insights through words and images on my website, SusanTaraMeyer.com.
