Pamela Tittle’s portrait had sparkle. This year, with the help of her husband, she fashioned lights behind her painting of fellow artist Frank Marshman. Marshman’s image seemed to appear like a genie from within an antique folding camera, and guests could change the effect of the lights with the press of a remote. And the other artists took notice. “Did you see the one with lights?” they asked each other while perusing the gallery Thursday evening.
On a routine photo shoot for the Harrisonburg Police Auxiliary, Allen Litten pulled out a smartphone to take the shot. For anyone familiar with Litten’s work, the officers’ hoots and laughs wouldn’t be surprising.
