Sue Hershey, Secretary
Sue Hershey has been a photographer for over 30 years. Although she has worked commercially in advertising, she really enjoys the fine art side of the medium.
While working full time at a marketing/advertising career, Sue studied photography at both New York City’s School of Visual Arts, and New York University at night, and learned her craft at the feet of some well-known photographers.
Sue’s work has been shown, and has won photography awards, at the School of Visual Arts in NYC, the Dallas Center for Contemporary Arts and the One Show in Fort Worth, Texas. Her work has hung in Stratford Green Gallery in Lewisville, Texas, and Mud, Wind & Fire Gallery in Grapevine, Texas, before moving to Brevard in 2005.
Upon moving to Brevard, Sue co-founded the Bluewood Fine Art Photography Gallery in in 2006 in downtown Brevard. The Gallery was sold in 2010, although Sue continued to manage the Gallery for the new owner through 2012. In June 2013, Sue was juried into Number 7 Arts Gallery in Brevard.
