63 Huyck Rd. Rensselaerville, NY 12147

Join us on Sunday, September 8 from 4pm-6pm in welcoming September’s featured artist Ellen Rooney.

Ellen Rooney is a professional garden and travel photographer living in London.  Her work has appeared in numerous publications and she is represented by several photo libraries in Europe.  She has traveled and photographed extensively around the world both independently and while working for a small ship cruise company.  Before becoming a full time photographer, she was a film and subsequently a video editor at ABC News in New York and London.

Ellen has been coming to Rensselaerville since she was a child when her grandparents owned the house now owned by her family.  It was during those childhood visits that she developed a great fondness for the town, the area and many people here.  When her grandparents died, her parents took over the house and she continued to visit regularly on summer weekends when she was working in New York City.  Now that she is living in London she still manages to spend several weeks a year here during the summer and at Christmas seeing friends and taking photographs.
