Photography Exhibit - Dawn Currie

Photographic Artist Dawn Currie
Presenting Art Exhibit to
Raise Funds for a Humanitarian Mission to Cuba

Dawn Currie is exhibiting, and offering for sale at a reduced price, 42 pieces of her artwork in Building C, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd floor of the Government Center, Viera.  All proceeds will be used to defray costs of the mission and purchase much needed supplies for the Cuban people.  The exhibit will be on display from January 19 - March 16, 2012, and can be viewed during regular business hours.

In late March, Currie will be participating in a two week People-to-People humanitarian mission to Cuba.  Her group will be bringing much needed medicine, vitamins, and other supplies directly to clinics and individuals in several small towns across the island.  It will be a rare opportunity for participants to help people and to experience life in modern day Cuba.

Currie’s love for photography began in her youth.  She attended college at Rochester Institute of Technology taking classes in both professional photography and photographic processing and finishing.  After graduating with honors, she went on to supervise the operations of seven photo labs.  Looking to make a difference, she enlisted in the Air Force and applied her skills and talents to serving her country.  Each Air Force tour presented new opportunities and subjects to photograph.

Currie retired with thousands of photos and memories.  Architecture and nature are among her favorite subjects.  Living in Florida, she is provided with endless opportunities for continued exploration and inspiration.  Her images are constantly evolving; using her knowledge of diverse art media and styles.  With today’s technology, the possibilities are limitless. Currie enjoys experimenting with color, texture, and composition.  The result is a wide range of styles to satisfy a broad spectrum of artistic tastes.
