Black Tie International:  Rachel Gumina

Rachel Gumina


The Art Gallery at the Rockefeller State Park Preserve
 featuring photographer Rachel Gumina, exhibiting
December 5, 2009 - January 17, 201 0.
An artist reception will be held on December 6, 2009, 12-3 p.m.



Rachel Gumina's photographic passages explore her personal surround, whether at home on the hills of historic Pocantico, NY, or traveling to exotic regions where she views breathtaking sea and landscapes ready to document each at varying times of light cast by sun or moon.

She positions her camera at each subject seeking to find special moments in time, such as the action of soaring bird in flight revealing its winged beauty or posed to suckle a flower. Among her favored subjects are historical architectural sites that include statuary, aged edifices of stone, benches and weathered fences. Her portfolio includes design details, texture of materials, symmetry and patterns. Nature is a recurring theme instilled in her from school vacation days spent working as a wrangler and guide in Wyoming. The Grand Teton Mountain range was her daily inspiration. Among her photography archives are pictures of her family, including husband, George Gumina, two sons Barrett and Sebastian as well as precious pets, black Labrador Retriever Duke, Springer Spaniel Stripes as well supine cats Tigger and Toj.

All are willing models who are favored with formal portraiture as well as informal snaps.
Rachel employs new age technical tools to edit and enhance her images after the initial photo shoot: the end process continues with expert ink jet printing upon archival mat papers. She prefers out-of- doors, using natural light and a variety of backgrounds. She nurtured her photography interests while in college focusing on architectural themes, particularly historical buildings.

Mrs. Gumina graduated from Brown University, Class of  1983 where she earned her Bachelor of Arts degree. Her studies were furthered at the Parsons School of Design and the Owner Builder Center in a Hands on Program. She has honed her design skills working for the Rockefeller Group, Inc., The Rhode Island Preservation Commission
and architect Phillip George. In addition she has created designs for corporate and residential projects specializing in interior design and decoration.

The Art Gallery is on the Rockefeller State Park Preserve, one of 6 state historic sites and 13 parks administered by the New York State Office of Parks, Taconic Region. The Preserve is located on Route 1 17, one mile East of Route 9, Sleepy Hollow, NY. The land is comprised of John D. Rockefeller's eleven carriage trails system in Pocantico Hills, Rockwood Hall along the Hudson River, once the showpiece of
William Rockefeller's estate.

Gallery Hours are daily, 9:30 am - 4:30 pm. There is a $6 parking fee per vehicle.
For more information: Call the Visitor's Center (914) 631-1470, ext.O
