TORRINGTON — The Charlotte Hungerford Hospital Auxiliary is featuring the photography of Cynthia Kilbey Gorman through early April in the hospital’s main lobby hallway, 540 Litchfield St. The public is welcome to view and buy the artwork from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. A portion of the proceeds from sales of the artwork will support the auxiliary and the hospital.
Ms. Gorman began her professional career at 16 years old. She was commissioned to design a holiday greeting card for the American Hotel and Motel Association.
Her work has appeared in various shows and galleries from Connecticut to Florida.
Ms. Gorman is also a former record album cover designer and has been working in the computer graphics field since 1985.
She has created graphics for television, newspaper and magazine publications, posters and brochures, annual reports, charts and graphs, slide presentations and websites.
Her clients have ranged from large financial institutions to famous jazz musicians.
In 1983, Ms. Gorman received two Creativity Show awards for album covers designed for an independent record label in New York.
She won first place for best oil painting for her work entitled “Skull Study” in the 1999 Ferguson Library Show in Stamford.
In the 2001 Library Show, her “New Zealand New Year’s” was awarded the blue ribbon for best photograph.
In 2003, she received an honorable mention in the Stamford Art Association’s Black, White and Grey Show for her sculpture, “Age Before Beauty.”
When she and her husband, Tony, moved to the northwest corner of the state, they set up a network of cameras on their property.
They realized there was a variety of wildlife in the area and decided to offer photos for sale after many friends asked for copies.
Ms. Gorman has a certificate in web design from United Digital Artists in Manhattan and a bachelor of fine arts from Temple University’s Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia.
She is a member of the Stamford Art Association, the Avon Arts Association and the Northwest Connecticut Arts Council.
