In 2007, with her first DSLR in hand, Patricia Sweeney began her photographic journey. The adventure kicked off with a two-week solo trip to Paris.
Over the subsequent nine years, her passion for travel in combination with an awakening photographic creativity changed her worldview. Travels have taken her to Texas, California, Oregon, Montana, Maryland, Charleston, Savannah, Washington, France, Italy, Ireland, Cuba, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand and most recently Myanmar (Burma).
This exhibit, "The Journey of a Thousand Miles," documents her travels through Southeast Asia and Cuba as well as hidden gems of the United States. It runs through April. Watch the PhotoMidwest newsletter for more details on her upcoming exhibit reception during the April Fluno open house.
The Fluno Center, 601 University Ave., on the UW-Madison campus (http://www.fluno.com) is the newest exhibit space for local photographic artists.
