A visual artist in a variety of media, Marcia Lloyd returned to photography, an early passion, 12 years ago. Originally working on a long-term photographic project on women and aging, she has recently expanded it into a series entitled “Transformations,” exploring the emotions and attitudes of people experiencing major life transitions. Two other series in development are “Who Am I?” and “Women in the Mirror.”
Lloyd has studied at Toscana Photographic Workshops in Italy and at the International Center of Photography in New York City. In 2013, one of her photos was selected out of 650 submissions in all media to be shown in “NYC25″ at Westwood Gallery in Soho, NYC, and another out of 1,900 in all media for an online exhibition curated by Lizzetta LeFalle Collins of the Museum of the African Diaspora. Other exhibitions include a one-person show at K-Dog and Dunebuggy and two-person shows at Gallery 718 and Kush Cafe, all in Brooklyn, as well as groups shows at the Broome Street Gallery and The Art Institute of New York City in Soho; Viridian Gallery and Rush Gallery in Chelsea; The Gallery in Stamford, New York; the Image Gallery on Long Island; the Selena Gallery at Long Island University; Photoville 2011 in Brooklyn; F-Stop: Brooklyn’s inaugural show; and nine SONYA Studio Strolls. Four of her photographs were included in the 2009 slide show “We Are All Photographers” at the New York International Photo Festival. In addition, one of her photos was chosen in 2011 by multiple curators for Curate NYC as one of the top 150 out of the 1, 500 submissions in all media.
She has also achieved recognition as a leather sculptor, and her work is included in the Museum of Arts and Design, The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology, the Norman Rockwell Museum, the Coach Leatherware collection, and the Young-Mallon Archive.
