Gotsch Photos Accepted into Carson City Show

The Northern Nevada Railway Art Expo has accepted two black-and-white photos taken by artist Connie Gotsch of the Santa-Fe Lamy, New Mexico Spur Line for a show running July 17 to August 17 in Carson City, Nevada.
The show is a fund raiser for restoration of the Virginia and Truckee Railroad, the short line connecting Carson City with Virginia City.
Gotsch says, “I’ve always gotten a kick out of the fact that Santa Fe Railroad’s main line doesn’t come anywhere near Santa Fe, and a spur connects the city to the main line at Lamy. The railroad offers tourist trips to Lamy from Santa Fe, so I took one, and found these shots.” She uses a blend of two photographic styles - shooting with small cameras to catch a moment, but with a deep appreciation for the printing techniques of Ansel Adams.
Gotsch has shown photos in the Four Corners and New Mexico for the past 18 years. Last February, she won an award for Best Two Dimensional Photo in a show entitled Faces of Women, for a black-and-white image of a woman selling soft drinks at a temple in X’ian, China. Faces of Women was put on by the Las Vegas Arts Council in Las Vegas, New Mexico.
       Gotsch is also a writer who has had two novels, ‘Snap Me a Future,’and ‘A Mouth Full of Shell,’ published by DLSIJ Press. She will publish a youth novel ‘Belle’s Star’ with Artemesia Publishing in 2009.
