Last week, library officials put the finishing touches on a new exhibit from Rosenstock called “Light is My Palette,” a comprehensive showcase of the photographer’s work that will remain set up until late spring.

May 2019 Chamber Exchange
Get Inspired by Sbrogna's Artistic Promotions
By Rebecca Landry, Communications & Marketing Intern
Following a moment of inspiration, Linda Sbrogna launched the eponymous Sbrogna’s Artistic Promotions to help others see the beauty of the world, which she celebrates every day, through art. During her time as an administrative assistant for the Department of Medicine at UMass Medical School, Sbrogna, a member of the Auburn Chamber of Commerce, was asked to create an art gallery that would bring peace, beauty, and color to the fifth floor of the teaching hospital. The gallery was comprised of UMass staff artwork and was displayed for patients, staff, and visitors to enjoy. When the gallery was near completion, a patient entered and expressed his appreciation to Sbrogna. “Whoever put this gallery together, I want to thank them for taking a few minutes of my pain away,” she anecdotally remembered the patient saying. This interaction, combined with a previous love for art, encouraged Sbrogna to open her own business. Sbrogna’s Artistic Promotions is designed to support artists and inspire others through these works. Currently, she represents two artists, Ron Rosenstock and Mark Doyle, and one musician, Mauro DePasquale. Rosenstock is a photographer, photo tour leader, and retired photography teacher. His work can be viewed at the Auburn Public Library or through programs scheduled by Sbrogna. Rosenstock says that Sbrogna has been successful in promoting his teaching and they both strive to inspire as many people as possible. “When I exhibit, I don’t exhibit with the hope of selling my photographs, I exhibit with the hope of inspiring people,” said Rosenstock. His program Photography as a Spiritual Experience is an exercise in being present to the moment, with a slide show of his work and the work of other artists set to quiet music. The program was shown at the Worcester Senior Center last Spring, and Sbrogna feels delighted to continue working with the senior center in the future. “We have been presenting in many senior facilities and the joy and smiles in the rooms are priceless. We are bringing the beauty of the world to the people,” said Sbrogna. Doyle, a professional photographer with a range of photo lab services at AutumnColor Digital Imaging in Worcester, says that Sbrogna promotes his work by sharing it with the people she meets. She also creates email campaigns and makes phone calls to spread the word. His work is displayed in revolving exhibits at the Worcester Regional Airport and on a panorama in the Bank of America building on Park Avenue in Worcester. This panorama is a long term exhibit that features Doyle’s photos printed onto wallpaper. Doyle is presently focusing on architecture and real estate photography. Sbrogna also promotes the music of jazz artist DePasquale, featuring it on her website. DePasquale plays with award-winning jazz trio Jazzed Up, who were voted Best Jazz Act in the 2019 Worcester Music Awards. The trio performs at various local venues, including Bull Mansion and Medusa Brewing Company, and at WCCA TV’s Central Mass Jazz Festival. Excited to continue making a difference in the community, Sbrogna joined the Chamber in 2013. She was looking for the opportunity to connect with other business owners, support them, and learn from them. Chamber membership has helped Sbrogna feel connected to the Worcester community and build long lasting relationships with other members, while also promoting artists. “Linda goes to nearly every Chamber meeting in Worcester County,” said Doyle, expressing that the Chamber’s events also provide the opportunity for Sbrogna to share his work with other members. She has been a part of the Women’s Information Network, which recently re-branded to the Power of Women. In that vein, Sbrogna says she has enjoyed the “opportunity to meet other women in business and learn from them.” Sbrogna has also attended other Chamber events centered around networking opportunities, including Business After Hours, and plans to continue attending Chamber events as they open up doors to her business and the local art community.
