WASHINGTON – A new exhibition featuring the work of photographers Elizabeth Richebourg Rea, Jeannette Montgomery Barron and Carrie Coco will be on view at the Washington Art Association February 8 to March 2.

The public is invited to attend the opening reception from 3 to 5 p.m. Saturday, February 8.

Elizabeth Richebourg Rea is exhibiting her recent large-scale, black and white and color cibachromes of intimate psychological encounters between people.

Ms. Rea, a Washington resident, was director of Castelli/ Feigen/ Corcoran Gallery in New York and the editor of several major museum catalogs on such artists as Joseph Cornell and Roy Lichtenstein. She has exhibited in New York, Florida and Connecticut and her work is in a number of private collections.

Jeannette Montgomery Barron is a still life and portrait photographer. In 1989, Editions Bischofberger published 60 of her portraits and still lifes. Her photographs are in numerous private, museum and corporate collections, including those of Ralph Lauren and Banana Republic.

She is currently working on a book of still lifes which will have an accompanying essay by the writer Edmund White. She has had exhibitions in New York, Rome, Zurich and Los Angeles.

Carrie Coco works exclusively in photomontage, juxtaposing unusual subjects to explore their visual and emotional consequences. Part of her exhibit will consist of an installation on the theme of windows.
A resident of Litchfield, she originally trained in photojournalism at Indiana University before turning to fine art photography. She has exhibited widely in Connecticut and her works are in private collections in Maine, California and Connecticut.

The Washington Art Association is located in Bryan Memorial Plaza. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Saturday, and 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday. The gallery is closed Wednesdays.
