Claudia di Franko, a free-lance artist who lives in Troutville, VA, creates black & white and unusually toned photographs that capture “life as it is” in many unusual locations across the world.

She has studied art at Hollins University, Prague and in New York City. As she has traveled, de Franko has used her camera to reflect human experiences far different from the world of rural Virginia. She has won several awards for her photography, which has been featured in various publications and been exhibited nationally and internationally. One characteristic of de Franko’s work is that she rarely prints an image twice, assuring that her patrons acquire a unique, archival object. She is the owner of Gala Studios and Mexoteca.

This exhibit, which she calls THE BRIDGE, moves beyond her photographs, including  several mixed media scrolls that suggest deeper exploration of her inner self. The show will also include several three-dimensional works that include fiber and found objects, reflecting some of her other interests (needlework, heritage and memory pieces). These are unusual and thought provoking, hinting at her personal altars, family and other life reflections. Taken together the works serve as a bridge between outer observation and inner revelation.  Make sure you stop by the gallery and see THE BRIDGE at the AHACC Gallery from July27 –  Aug.  20, 2021
