Dane Konop ’75 and the Magical Allure of “Rivermaids”

Dane Konop's Rivermaid

From July 7 to August 11, 2012, the Race Street Artists’ Co-op in Martinsburg, W.Va., presents “Rivermaids,” photographer Dane Konop’s (B.A. English 1975) visual paean to the continuing allure of the magical spirits that humans for millennia have believed inhabit springs, lakes, and streams, usually in female form.

The collection includes archival-quality photos of six local beauties on the Potomac River who reveal their obviously adventurous spirit and special rapport with the water.  The show opens July 7 with a catered reception from 7:00–9:00 p.m. at the Co-op.  Parental discretion is advised, as the collection includes nudes.

Konop lives in Shepherdstown, W.Va.
