Meet the Maker Saturdays – Cindy Caroline
December 14, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Every Saturday in December our guests will have the opportunity to meet a few of our artisans. On the 15th, Wayne County photographer Cindy Caroline will be on hand to discuss and sell her photography.
Cindy discussing what drives her photography:
“As an artist, I have two major goals related to my photographic endeavors. First, I want to capture and share images that emphasize the natural beauty of God’s creation, both locally and in a larger context. Many of my photographs were taken within a few miles of my home in Wayne County. From sweeping vistas of mountains and valleys all the way to the tiniest details found in tree bark, moss, or flowers, I hope my photographs will inspire others to pause, recognize, reflect upon, and appreciate their surroundings, whether in their hometown or in a distant locale.
Second, I want to utilize my photography skills to make meaningful contributions to my community. For example, I’ve volunteered to take pictures during events such as a 5K race held on a local farm and a book signing and musical event hosted by a local author. Images from those events were shared with the participants free of charge. I have also donated images of scenes in Wayne County to the local public library, the Wayne County Economic Development Authority, and to a few charitable organizations. Additionally, I take candid photographs at the local elementary school, which are given to the students, or are printed in the yearbook. I am a teacher at that school, which I also attended as a student. I feel deeply rooted to this community, and while I enjoy showcasing images from across West Virginia and surrounding regions, focusing on photographing the people and places of Wayne County has enabled me to more fully recognize and appreciate the beauty that surrounds me, just a few miles from home.”
In addition, we will have Saturday-only discounts at The Red Caboose and a raffle.
