Juror: Wendy Cahill
Wendy Cahill, proprietor of Annie Grafics in York Village, will be the judge of the May YAA show, Art in Bloom. Wendy has a background in art which began in 1994 when she graduated from the Manchester Institute of Art, following a 2 year certificate program in Photography.
She started photographing weddings, events, and family portraits when she realized her passion was photographing people and capturing portraits of the environment. When Wendy was in school she photographed her instructors’ young daughter at the Currier Museum in Manchester, in front of a Painting by John Singer Sargent. It became her signature piece and was used by the Currier in Publications to attract young visitors.
Wendy was Governor Lynch's Photographer for 8 years. In this capacity she photographed his inaugurations, personal events and the Governor’s annual family christmas card.
Gov. Lynch appointed Cahill in 2008 to the NH State Council on the Arts where she served for 4 years representing Concord. In that capacity she helped choose Artists for new and renovated State Office buildings under the Percentage for Art program. She also helped choose recipients for the Governors Art awards, and helped decide where grant monies would be best used.
Currently Wendy enjoys photographing wooden boats. She looks for details that you can get with a long lens of sail patterns, the grain of the wood, and polished brass. In that end, she sails each year on The Mary Day, a schooner out of Camden. Her pursuit is capturing the beauty of passing boats, the rugged shoreline and the Mary Day itself.
