FARMINGTON — SugarWood Gallery Artist of the Month Ramona du Houx, of Solon, will be feted at an Open House Reception set for 5-8 p.m. Friday, July 1, at 248 Broadway during Farmington’s First Friday Art Walk.

Du Houx creates fine art photography that looks like watercolor paintings evoking mystery and a sense of wonder. Some find them nostalgic and some mystical. Many have said the images have a healing nature.

She is currently represented by Gallery Storks of Tokyo, Japan and is also a member of the Maine Artist Collaborative and the Harlow Gallery. Gallery Storks has produced an art book of Ramona’s art called: Transformations — Revealing Nature’s Complex Balance. Many of the photos on display are in the book.

Du Houx uses the camera with a painter’s eye. The technique she discovered back in 1979, in New York, uses movement to create a sense of wonder through colors, textures, memories, and the seasons. Everything within the viewfinder becomes visibly interconnected when objects merge with the motion of the camera as the image, the “lightgraph,” is taken.

Gallery hours are 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
