About the Artist: Sue Romano"Seize the moment through the lens of your camera," states Sue Romano, a self taught photographer who rarely leaves her house without her camera. Her lifelong passion for the sea, sand and surf is the subject of much of her photography. Strolling the beach, Sue looks for the surprising new things nature has created: a beached boat, snowy storm at sea, silhouette of light or a stone necklace. They catch her eye and her camera's focus. "Photography has always been part of my life and life's memories live on through my photographs." As a world traveler and lover of the outdoors, photography provides Sue Romano with the means to see and interpret the world in her own way. " I am delighted to share what I find captivating with others." This season, Sue has participated in juried shows at the East End Arts Gallery in Riverhead; Guild Hall in East Hampton; and Fire Island Lighthouse in Bayshore. She also exhibits her work at the Terrance Joyce Gallery in Greenport. The Riverhead Town Hall art exhibits are a collaborative effort on the part of the East End Arts Council and the Township of Riverhead to support local artists and introduce their works to the community.
