Remembering Georgia Sheron
“Life without art…is unimaginative and out of touch with emotions.” Those are words from ACC member Georgia Sheron, who passed away at the end of January.
On June 29, a special memorial was held to honor Georgia, an accomplished photographer. From family and friends to photographers and musicians, almost 200 people came from near and far to pay tribute to this special, talented woman with a bohemian streak! The day ended with a sunset you might call a photographer’s dream.

Backstage Member Spotlight
This month’s Backstage Member Spotlight is on a business that has been a longtime member of the ACC. Perhaps she has photographed you, your family or your pet. Tina Petta-Pelletier, the owner of Uniquely Yours Photography, is celebrating her 30th year in business and if you’ve been photographed by her or take a look at her website, you’d understand why. She has an eye for capturing the emotion of a setting. “My photographic style captures what only the heart can see!”
Tina sat down with us and we asked her the most important question every photographer should be asked.
Make Music Day in Waterbury!
Despite the rainy start, Make Music Day of Waterbury turned out to be a great success. With bands, singers, dance groups, and more all over downtown it would have been hard for people not to stop at one of the many food trucks in front of City Hall to enjoy a good meal with a show.
Please enjoy these pictures taken by the ACC intern, Almesa Sabovic. If you have pictures of your own from Make Music Day be sure to tag @ACC on Facebook!
