    After forty years in the legal profession in Washington, D.C., Brook Hedge now pursues her lifelong passion for photography.  She divides her time between Lewes, Delaware, and Sandwich, New Hampshire, two different but equally enticing photography venues.

 

    Through the years, Brook has studied with a wide variety of professionals and her works have been widely exhibited.  In 2019, she had her first solo show, “Awakenings,” at Lewes’s Peninsula Gallery.  Peninsula is one of Delaware’s largest and most noted galleries.  Peninsula also presented a joint exhibition of Brook’s works and those of her late mentor, Richard Calvo, in 2020.  The next year, she joined Peninsula as a Resident Artist with works displayed on an ongoing basis and, as one of five artists, included in the “I Am Woman” show.  In addition to Peninsula, the Patricia Ladd Carega Gallery in Sandwich now represents Brook and she will have a solo show there in July 2022.  Her images also will be part of an August 2021 show featuring various artists’ work created during the pandemic.

Brook’s gallery shows build on her prior juried exhibitions, including: 

  • 1992 11th Washington D.C. Area-Wide Amateur Photography Exhibition; 

  • 2010 show jointly held by Packard-Reath Gallery in Lewes and Gallery 50 in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware; 

  • 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2020 juried biannual shows held by the Rehoboth Art League (RAL), winning an Award of Excellence and an Honorary Mention for shows drawing artists of all media from a seven-state area; 

  • Biggs Museum (Dover, Delaware) exhibits featuring artists from seven states; 

  • 78th Annual RAL Members Fine Art Exhibition at which her image, “Reflection,” received critical acclaim (www.deartsinfo.com/2016/01/the-coastal-camera-club-juried.html?m=1) and won the William Horn Award for best photograph;

  • 82d Annual RAL Members Fine Art Exhibition at which her image, “Once Was,” won the William Horn Award; and

  • 2017 South x Southeast Gallery in Atlanta, Georgia, juried by Elizabeth Avedon, which included “Reflections” and, in 2019, a South x Southeast show which included her piece “Homecoming”.
